Falcons Score Six Unearned Runs

No. 1 North County, perfect for five weeks, lost its second game in two days Tuesday, as No. 4 Severna Park capitalized on five errors to beat the Knights, 7-4.

"We took advantage of missed plays in the field," said Severna Park coach Jim McCandless, whose team improved to 13-1 and took the lead among Anne Arundel County teams. "We have the capacity to make big innings when opposing teams give us extra chances at the plate."

Severna Park shortstop Kyle Convissar, a junior, led the attack. His double in the second inning drove in two runs after his North County (12-2) counterpart made two errors and the Knights' first baseman made another to help the Falcons produce their big four-run inning. On the mound, senior Dylan Taylor (5-0, 1.07 ERA) scattered seven hits and struck out six.

"It definitely wasn't easy, " Taylor said. "They came out hitting in the first and second inning, and I had to work harder. But it was fun, and we were the better team today."

The Falcons added their fifth run (their only earned run) in the fourth inning, when Convissar was hit by a pitch and came home on a double by Mike Boushell. Severna Park completed its scoring in the fifth with two more unearned runs.
