April 28, 2002|By Kevin Van Valkenburg and Rick Belz | Kevin Van Valkenburg and Rick Belz,SUN STAFF

It was a big week for high scoring in Howard County girls lacrosse.

Hammond's Kelly Berger tied a school record with nine goals in a 21-6 victory over Pallotti, while Glenelg's Lindsay Lewis had seven goals in a 9-8 win over Centennial in double overtime.

Days later, Lewis, who is Glenelg's all-time leader in goals, watched teammate Katie Krumpotich have her own stellar day, scoring six times in a clutch 14-12 win over Hammond.

Mount Hebron chose to spread the wealth in a 30-0 win over Atholton, as 19 players registered a goal, but no one scored more than three. Melissa McCarthy and Katrina McGowen led the Vikings with three goals each.

The Vikings (10-0, 6-0 county) will face Glenelg (8-2, 6-0) on Tuesday at Mount Hebron in a matchup of the only two undefeated teams in the county.


River Hill (12-2) overcame a 2-0 first-inning deficit to defeat Glenelg, 5-3, on Friday, and will play host to No. 2 Atholton (12-1) at 3:45 p.m. tomorrow.

The game is crucial because a win by the Hawks would tie them with the Raiders for a share of first place. River Hill has two league losses (to Atholton and Howard), while the Raiders have only one (to Glenelg).
