The visiting Severna Park boys soccer team advanced to the Class 3A East Regional final yesterday by handing top-ranked River Hill its first loss of the season, 2-1.

The game was tied at 1 midway through the second half until Andrew Ennema corralled a corner kick and sent it down low to J.P. Murphy, who deposited it into the right side of the net for the deciding goal that ended the season for the Hawks (12-1-1).

"The subs that went in did a great job for us," said Falcons coach Don Gregg, whose unranked team improves to 10-5-1. "It was an absolute team effort."

No. 3 Eastern Tech 1, Hereford 0: Matt Moffa scored his 17th goal of the season on a penalty kick in the 73rd minute and Lawrence Ramsey posted his sixth straight shutout to lead the Mavericks (15-1-1) past the Bulls and into the 2A North final.

No. 10 Dulaney 4, Patapsco 2: Junior James Russo scored two of his three goals in the decisive second half to pace the visiting Lions (12-4-1) in the 3A North semifinals.

No. 13 Sparrows Point 3, Elkton 2: Senior David Pusinsky scored a goal and assisted on Lamar Porter's game-winner, which sent the visiting Pointers (12-3) to the 1A North final.

Franklin 5, No. 15 Fallston 4: The Indians finalized a furious comeback when senior Brandi Sproul's knocked home the team's fifth penalty kick, propelling host Franklin (9-6-1) to the 3A North Regional final against Dulaney on Monday.

The score was tied at 3 after regulation, only because of an Indians rally that erased a 3-1 deficit with under four minutes to play, thanks to two goals in a seven-second span.

No. 5 Hammond 2, Middletown 1: Senior keeper Tara Zammichieli saved all three of Middletown's shots in the penalty-kick shootout, and Colleen Tucci secured the win by making the Bears' fourth shot.

Hammond (14-1-1), which needed Melissa Workman's goal in the 68th minute to force overtime, will play the winner of today's Centennial-North Hagerstown game on Monday in the 2A West Regional final.

No. 9 Perry Hall 2, Kenwood 1: The Gators (13-0-1) got the game-winner from Christy Zingarelli with 12 minutes left to beat the host Bluebirds and advance to the 4A North Regional final against Parkville.

No. 1 McDonogh 20, St. Paul's 0: The Eagles (9-0) got a huge day from quarterback Joe Benson, who scored on a 5-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, and later threw 50-yard touchdown passes to David Ginsberg and Scott Robinson to seal the win.
