Fall sports

October 31, 2007|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

After losing three games in a season for the first time since the mid-1980s, Severna Park's field hockey team came roaring back last night, upsetting No. 1 Broadneck, 4-1, in a Class 4A East regional semifinal.

The No. 5 Falcons (13-3) remain on course to boost their state-record 16 championships to 17 thanks to two goals from Hayley Rausch and one each from Lauren Crum and Kaylee Pohlmeyer.

Karri Ellen Johnson's goal for the Anne Arundel champion Bruins (15-2) cut the lead to 2-1 late in the first half, but Broadneck could get no closer.

The Falcons aim to avenge another regular-season loss tomorrow, when they play for the regional title at No. 2 South River.

No. 6 Fallston 4, No. 10 Towson 1 -- Rachel Cooke scored two goals on assists from Lindsey Puckett as the Cougars (13-2-1) beat the Generals (14-3) in a 3A North quarterfinal.
