With two runs in the third inning and four in the fourth, host and No. 10 Chesapeake came back from an early three-run deficit to slip past No. 11 Glen Burnie, 6-5, in Anne Arundel County softball yesterday.

The Cougars (2-1, 2-0 in county play) got most of their production from the bottom of their order. Lauren Gottlieb and Emily Bolling, hitting seventh and eighth respectively, both scored two runs and ninth hitter Samantha Dulski capped the four-run fourth inning with a two-run double.

"Right now, what we've been trying to do is really find our starting lineup and who's going to produce. We held together and pulled it off - it's a great win for the kids because it helps their confidence," said Chesapeake coach Don Ellenberger, whose Cougars have five new regulars in the lineup this season.

For Glen Burnie, now 3-2 for the season and 1-1 in league play, Adrienne Blake went 3-for-3 with a triple and two runs, and Michelle Davis had three hits and scored a run.

No. 3 Spalding 8, No. 15 Pallotti 1: Sloane Van Meter went 3-for-4 - hitting a double and two triples - scored three runs and had an RBI to power the host Cavaliers (3-1).

Winner Sarah Weigmen gave up three hits, three walks and one run, and struck out six.
