Familiarity led to No. 6 Old Mill's 1-0 victory over No. 11 Severna Park in boys soccer 65 seconds into the first overtime at Roberts Field in Severna Park last night.

Derek Harris and Andrew Engel, who also play together on the Patriots' basketball team and know each other well, got it done after a scoreless 80 minutes of regulation.

Old Mill is off to a 5-0 start while Severna Park is now 3-3 overall, although the Falcons' only league loss is to the Patriots, the defending Anne Arundel County champions.

Harris took a long free kick from Morgan Midgett and headed it left, toward the far post, where Engel was waiting.

"Derek got a nice head on it ... and the keeper couldn't get a hand on it, so I just ran right through it to the goal," Engel said. "We got a little connection on the field, just like we do on the court. I've known Derek a real long time, playing both sports with him in middle school and high school. We both definitely have a feeling for each other."

Eastern Tech 1, No. 10 Perry Hall 0 -- Senior Andrew Scott's unassisted goal five minutes into play was enough for the host Mavericks (3-3) to edge the Gators (3-1) as goalkeeper Jon Sipes had eight saves.

No. 14 Arundel 1, South River 0 -- Junior Brendon McCarron finished a cross from younger brother Jason McCarron in the 28th minute as the host Wildcats earned their fifth win in a shutout against the Seahawks.

Knight's final goal came in the 66th minute. Eastern Tech (2-1, 2-1) attacked for much of the second half but couldn't score against Gators goalkeeper Jessica Stumpf, who made two exceptional saves against Cindi Nickles.

No. 13 Centennial 3, Wilde Lake 0 -- Senior goalkeepers Caitlin Burr and Ally Bloom combined for the shutout in the Eagles' Howard County opener. Danielle Rosanova scored and added an assist for Centennial (4-1 overall) in the win over the host Wildecats (2-1-2).
