A minute into double overtime, Broadneck's Chelsea Thompson finally ended a field hockey game that seemed destined to end in a penalty-stroke shootout.

For 71 minutes last night, No. 3 Broadneck (7-1-1) and No. 13 North Carroll played fairly evenly. The host Bruins had a lot more penalty corners but were unable to generate many shots.

Thompson made the most of the Bruins' only shot in seven-on-seven overtime, pushing the ball out of a crowd and past Panthers goalkeeper Caitlin Bach for the 1-0 win.

"I just saw the ball coming back out, and I just knew we had to end this game," Thompson said. "I just gave it my all and got it in."

"We just need to capitalize on our scoring opportunities in the circle, because against good teams, they're few and far between," said Panthers coach Denean Koontz, whose team dropped to 4-2.

No. 11 Glenelg 3, Centennial 1: : The host Gladiators (6-2) received goals from Mary Kate Olson and Alyssa and Lauriann Parker to power past the Eagles. Glenelg goalie Courtney Knill and Centennial goalie Liz Snyder each made 15 saves.

Golf

Atholton 166, River Hill 164: : Atholton won the Howard County boys golf championship over previously unbeaten and regular-season champion River Hill.

Atholton's Morgan Hill captured the overall boys title with 53 points, and teammate Seong Lee finished second with 47 points.

"It really wasn't a surprise that we won," Raiders coach John Engelkemier said. "We put up big numbers through the year, scoring 90 points several times, and we only lost three matches."

At the Timbers of Troy golf course, Hill and Lee together outscored most of the Howard County teams.

"Putting up 100 points makes a big difference," said River Hill coach Matt Graves, whose team was 11-0 in the regular season. "Those two beat a lot of teams, and I would have had a breakout day from one of my kids. But we played very consistently, and I think we have a good chance of qualifying our whole team for state competition Friday at the Districts."

Centennial 125, Marriotts Ridge 80: : In the girls competition, the Eagles beat the Mustangs, with Audra McShane's 48 points leading the way. Tory Stader (35 points) of Marriotts Ridge finished second.

"Audra is the best player at Centennial," coach Ron Martin said. "She, Jessica Mehta [fourth place] and Alex McShane [sixth] will move up to play with our coed team Friday at Districts."
