The No. 9 Severn girls lacrosse team spent yesterday afternoon at Mount de Sales frustrated and unable to find answers at either end of the field.

The No. 12 Sailors scored five straight goals in the first half to build a comfortable lead, which their defense had little trouble protecting in coming away with a 14-6 victory in an Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference quarterfinal. The Admirals closed out their season with a 13-5-2 record.

"Our defense didn't click, we weren't communicating, and that didn't give our attack a whole lot of chances. Mount de Sales did a great job of taking advantage of that," said Severn coach Renie Sotiropoulos.

After watching the Sailors (12-3-2) execute their set attack to near perfection in the first half to build a 10-3 lead, the Admirals came out of the break dominating possession with no results. Junior Schuyler Sutton had a couple of chances and Jessica Adam had one in the first five minutes of the second half, but Mount de Sales goalie Colleen O'Boyle turned away three shots while others went wide and high.

With 18:57 left, Sutton (two goals) scored to cut the lead to 10-4, but the Sailors quickly scored the next two goals to leave little suspense.

In tomorrow's semifinal, Mount de Sales will play host to Bryn Mawr, a 6-5 winner over St. Mary's yesterday.

No. 2 Maryvale 10, No. 14 St. Paul's 9: Katie Chrest scored two goals in the final 1:15 to lead the host Lions (11-1-1) past the determined Gators (9-8-3).

St. Paul's Annie Wagner scored her fifth goal to put the Gators up 9-8 with 3:42 left. After a costly Gators offside foul, Chrest tied the score on a free-position goal. Then with 46 seconds left, Chrest polished off an end-to-end passing series on a feed from Emily Vitrano for the winner.

No. 10 Roland Park, 14, No. 5 Notre Dame Prep 13: The host Reds (8-7) used a sudden-death goal from Catie Mangels to oust the defending champions.

The Blazers (10-4-1) jumped out to a 4-0 lead but fell behind in the second half and needed Carli Vogler's goal with 20 seconds left to tie at 12. The teams traded goals through the first six minutes of overtime.

In sudden death, NDP goalie Megan Sneeringer made a kick save against Lindsay Higgins (four goals), but the Reds' Sara Zorzi came up with the ground ball. Zorzi passed to Alex Nolan, who was triple-teamed and dumped the ball off to Mangels. The sophomore slashed down the middle for the game-winner.

No. 8 Bryn Mawr 6, St. Mary's 5: Olachi Oparah drove down the middle for the deciding goal with 1:10 remaining as the Mawrtians (12-3-3) advanced to tomorrow's A Conference semifinals. They travel to Mount de Sales at 4 p.m.

Mary Key led the visiting Saints (10-9-3) with two goals while Megan Burker and Jenn Redd scored two each for Bryn Mawr.
