October 18, 2012|The Baltimore Sun

The Severna Park boys soccer team spent the entire game against pesky South River looking for the goal that would help make history in Wednesday's regular-season finale in Edgewater.

With under two minutes to play, it finally came. Senior forward Kyle Albach gained room on the right side after taking a pass across from Daniel Kwon and was able to find the lower left corner from 15 yards to give the No. 6 Falcons a 1-0 win over the Seahawks and complete a perfect regular season.

In going 14-0, Severna Park closed with six straight shutouts and 10 overall, outscoring its opponents 43-5.  The Falcons will take on second-place North County in the Anne Arundel County championship game, set for 5 p.m. Tuesday at North County.

"Right at the end of the game — we were working for it all game and it just came down to that shot and we finished it.  It's wonderful right now — [South River] is a good team and it was a hard game," said Albach, who now has 13 goals on the season.

Kenwood 3, Dundalk 1: Harman Kimaini scored the game-tying and go-ahead goals for the visiting Bluebirds (9-2-1).
