Fall sports: Kalama sets Bel Air soccer record

October 13, 2012|From Sun staff reports

Carson Kalama scored twice to help the Bel Air boys soccer team win Friday and break a school scoring record that had stood for 43 years.

The host Bobcats (5-0) won, 3-1, over North Harford and claimed the Upper Chesapeake Division.

Kalama has 38 career goals and 42 assists, breaking the record set by Greg Zebedic in 1969.

Austin McKinney added a goal and an assist for Bel Air.

No. 8 Centennial 2, No. 12 Oakland Mills 1: Peter Vorel scored two goals, the second coming with 5:21 left in regulation, to lift Centennial to a comeback victory over Oakland Mills.

The Eagles improved to 9-0 in Howard County play, 11-0 overall, to stay tied with Marriotts Ridge for first place with two games left in the regular season. Oakland Mills (6-3, 9-3), which got its lone goal from John Caldwell, saw its six-game winning streak end.

No. 2 River Hill 5, No. 13 Marriotts Ridge 0: One of the biggest reasons the No. 2 Hawks have been able to impressively stay a step ahead of a talented pack in Howard County this season has been the dynamic one-two punch of forwards Sheridan Street and Alex Hamer.

  The tandem delivered the point quickly Friday night when River Hill was taking on its closest challenger, the Mustangs, with a chance to clinch at least a share of the county championship.

    Just over a minute into the game, Hamer made a strong run with the ball to win the right side before sending the ball across to Street for a finish in front. The same thing happened 10 minutes later — Hamer to Street — as the Hawks comfortably defeated visiting Marriotts Ridge.

   River Hill improved to 12-0 this season and 9-0 in Howard with two league games remaining. The Mustangs, who have been slowed by injuries in recent weeks, fell to 8-3-1 and 6-2-1 in league play. Atholton, a 4-0 winner over Glenelg on Friday, is 7-2 in league play to remain in contention. River Hill takes on Atholton on Thursday.

  For the season, Street, who also recorded an assist, has 17 goals and six assists, while Hamer has six goals and 13 assists. Katie Arensmeier added a goal and an assist in the win.  

   "Our game plan today was to keep everything on the ground because the field was a little wet and are game is to go out wide, bring the ball across as somebody is going to make a run to finish," River Hill coach Brian Song said.
