May 21, 2010|By Jeff Seidel | Special to The Baltimore Sun

No. 6 Winters Mill scored on its first two shots in the opening minute and quickly removed any suspense from Friday's Class 2A-1A state semifinal against Patterson Mill at Broadneck, rolling to a 19-7 victory.

The Falcons (17-1) advanced to the state final next week against the winner of today's semifinal between Queen Anne's and Loch Raven. This is Winters Mill's second trip to the state finals; the Falcons won the Class 3A-2A state crown two years ago.

"We wanted to [play hard] for 50 minutes and not let up," said Falcons coach Courtney Vaughn. "We started off strong. We started off relentless."

The Falcons won the opening draw, and Erin McMunn scored just 11 seconds into the game. McMunn then scored at the 57-second mark on the team's second shot. Winters Mill stretched the lead to 8-0 with 10:32 left in the first half.

Winters Mill also got a strong performance from goalie Katie Horn, who made 13 saves to keep the Falcons in command.

Patterson Mill goalie Gabby Brooks finished with 10 saves.


No. 11 Glenelg 11, Patterson Mill 3: After watching Patterson Mill slow the pace throughout the first half, No. 11 Glenelg took command in the final two quarters in a Class 2A-1A state semifinal at Broadneck.

Next week, Glenelg (18-2) will play in its third state final game in the past four years. The Gladiators meet the winner of today's other state semifinal between Queen Anne's and Loch Raven.

Patterson Mill (10-9) relied heavily on patience in the first half. Glenelg scored twice in the first three minutes before the Huskies began taking their time on offense. They slowed the pace to a crawl at times, a big reason the Gladiators held only a 3-1 halftime lead.

"They took the air out of the ball a little bit," Glenelg coach Josh Hatmaker said. "We had to be more patient and take advantage of our opportunities in the second half, and we did that."
