Jack Dudley scored off a pass from Kyle Frank at the 1:40 mark of overtime to lift host and top-ranked Boys' Latin to a 9-8 victory over No. 3 Loyola yesterday.

Loyola's Steele Stanwick passed the ball with three seconds left in regulation and Joe Cummings scored with no time remaining to send the game into overtime.

Mark Field led Boys' Latin (8-0) with three goals and Stanwick had two for Loyola (2-2).

"We had leads throughout the game. We were up 8-5 with less than five minutes left," Boys' Latin coach Bob Shriver said. "It's always a great game between Loyola and Boys' Latin."

Fallston 9, Bel Air 6 -- Chad Palmer, Ryan Strasdauskas and Patrick Mull helped visiting Fallston score the game's first six goals, and the Cougars held off a late Bel Air rally in a battle of unbeaten Harford County teams. Palmer (three goals), Strasdauskas (two goals, one assist) and Mull (one goal, three assists) each played a part in the Cougars jumping to a 6-0 lead with 8:52 left in the third quarter. Fallston (3-0) had the ball for nearly the entire first quarter plus very long stretches in the second period and the first part of the third before Bel Air (3-1) woke up. Mull again made a number of good passes to keep the offense moving. He has four goals and 11 assists. Fallston coach Matt Parks said slowing the pace was the game plan since the Cougars often shot the ball too quickly in their first two games. "We did a pretty good job of controlling the ball," Parks said. "We wanted to try to get into a better mode on offense and be more patient." Goalie Brandon MacKnew (14 saves) kept the Bobcats close, and Mitch Poole led the comeback with two goals. The Bobcats scored five of the game's last six goals after falling behind 8-1 but never got closer than three.



No. 9 Severna Park 12, South River 11 -- A bases-loaded walk by Cory Jensen scored the winning run in the bottom of the sixth to lift the host Falcons (3-1) over the Seahawks. Justin Seley went 3-for-3 with two RBIs for Severna Park, which had no extra-base hits.
