That first drive in a football game can make or break the underdog. Last night, unranked Northeast missed a golden opportunity on its initial possession and then saw No. 4 Broadneck win, 21-7, in an Anne Arundel County game at Lawrence E. Knight Stadium in Cape St. Claire.

Tony Marino, the senior quarterback of the Bruins (6-0), completed six of 11 passes for 166 yards and two first-half touchdowns. In addition, Marino ran out of the option for 66 yards on nine attempts.

Brandon Johnson led the Bruins in rushing with 75 yards on 14 attempts and scored their final touchdown on a two-yard smash in the third period.

Quarterback Chris Shade drove the visiting Eagles (3-3) from his 20 into the Bruins' red zone on the opening drive. The Bruins' defense, led by linebacker/defensive lineman Nick Sowells, stiffened, and the visitors had to settle for a field-goal attempt.

Unfortunately for Northeast, a 26-yard try by Shawn Schoolden was no good.

"That was big, not scoring there," said Northeast coach Mike Cotham, whose Eagles broke Broadneck's string of four consecutive shutouts, one short of the county record of five straight by Annapolis in 1966.

No. 6 Glenelg 2, No. 13 Mount Hebron 0: The sixth-ranked Gladiators put themselves in good position to repeat as Howard County champions by beating the Vikings.

Goals by Ashleigh Rizzo and Terri Coover helped the host Gladiators (9-1-2) secure first place in the county standings.

At 7-0-1 in the county, the Gladiators lead a tight race that includes Long Reach (6-0-2), River Hill (4-0-2) and 2002 county champ Mount Hebron (8-2, 6-1). The Gladiators tied Long Reach and have River Hill yet to play.

"This was a huge win for us," said Gladiators All-Metro midfielder Jenn Cochran, who assisted on Rizzo's goal with 1:03 left in the first half. "They'd been gearing toward us the whole season, and we've been gearing toward them."

The Gladiators got some breathing room with 11:16 left on a goal attributed to Coover. She wasn't sure she had scored it, because it came out of a scramble of sticks.

No. 3 St. Paul's 2,No. 9 Garrison Forest 1: Aiming to avenge a Sept. 15 overtime loss to the Gators, the visiting Grizzlies (7-5) instead fell into a 2-0 hole and couldn't recover.

Sarah Seats scored both goals for St. Paul's (9-1-3), which extended its unbeaten streak to four games. Taylor Braun scored Garrison Forrest's goal.

Hammond 2, Howard 1: Senior captain Julia Schemm, a forward for the visiting Bears (3-6), scored the winning goal with six seconds left in the second overtime period. The loss dropped the Lions to 2-6-1.

Dulaney 2, No. 12 Kenwood 1: Senior sweeper Jamie Grandizio scored the game-winner with just over four minutes remaining to upset the Bluebirds (8-3-1) and keep the host Lions undefeated at 8-0.

The Bluebirds' goal, scored by sophomore midfielder Hollee Kotchenreuther, was the first Dulaney has allowed.

No. 5 Eastern Tech 4, Hereford 2: The Mavericks (9-1) netted three first-half goals en route to victory over the visiting Bulls. Freshman midfielder Courtney Kobal paced the Mavericks with two goals.

No. 6 Glenelg 1, Wilde Lake 1: The host Wildecats (4-4-1) took a 1-0 lead in the first half off a free kick by junior sweeper Nikki Welch. The Gladiators (6-3) tied the score in the second half after Welch deflected a ball off Gladiator forward Amanda Feagle into the Wildecats' net.
