Sixth-ranked South River's bid to defend its Anne Arundel County girls soccer championship ended yesterday in defeat to visiting Arundel, 1-0.

The Seahawks (11-2-1 overall, 9-2 league) had the opportunity to earn a spot in Tuesday's championship game against No. 8 Severna Park, but Melissa Hornfeck's goal with three minutes left ended that notion.

Instead, 13th-ranked Chesapeake (11-1-1, 9-1-1), which lost Thursday to Severna Park (11-1, 10-1), will get a rematch with the Falcons in the county final.

Arundel (10-3-1, 9-1-1) controlled much of the pace of yesterday's contest and outshot the Seahawks 13-5. Still, the game remained scoreless until the final minutes.

"It's disappointing, but the season's not over," South River coach Keith Fontaine said. "If we can learn from this, I have high expectations for states."

Archbishop Spalding 3, No. 3 John Carroll 2: Despite the host Patriots (10-3-1, 8-2 Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference) building a two-goal lead in the second half, the Cavaliers (12-5, 6-3) rallied for three straight goals - the last by junior forward Kate Schaeffler - to pull off the upset.

John Carroll shut out Spalding for the first 50 minutes, and took a 2-0 lead on Ashley Myers' score off a direct kick at the start of the second half. Nevertheless, the Patriots lost for the second time in three games.

No. 10 St. Mary's 1, No. 4 Institute of Notre Dame 0: The visiting Saints (10-5-1) won for the fourth straight time, defeating the Indians (12-5-1) behind a score 25 minutes into the contest from senior midfielder Alison Reinhart.

No. 4 Loyola 2, Archbishop Spalding 1: The host Cavaliers failed to convert a penalty kick late in the second half that would have tied the score, and the Dons got second-half goals from senior forward Matt Curran and junior forward Tim Paul.


Lansdowne: The team had to forfeit today's scheduled game against visiting Potomac because it did not have enough players. According to Ron Belinko, Baltimore County supervisor of athletics, several Lansdowne players are being disciplined for breaking team rules.
