Roundup: No. 4 Severn girls soccer stays unbeaten, beats No. 12 Severna Park, 1-0

No. 14 Mount St. Joseph beats Bullis in football

September 09, 2014|The Baltimore Sun

Severn sophomore forward Eddy Shoop was fairly certain she scored two goals in her freshman soccer season last year, but she thought one of them might have come in a scrimmage.

So after she was reminded that she already has five goals in the No. 4 Admirals' 3-0 start — including the game-winner in the final minute of a 1-0 win over No. 12 Severna Park (0-2) on Monday — she couldn't help but giggle.

"Oh, my gosh. It's so cool," she said.

 Severn goalie Alayah Hightower (eight saves) was largely responsible for keeping the game scoreless with a number of key saves before Shoop went to work down the left side.  She ran on to a through ball from midfielder Brooke Robbins, took a quick look to see where Severna Park goalie Alexandra Putkowski was and then placed a shot from eight yards that found the back of the net. 

The game, originally scheduled on Saturday to close out the Anne Arundel Community College's Pioneer Shootout, was postponed due to rain. For Shoop and the Admirals, who upset then-No. 4 South River, 3-1, in their tournament opener on Friday, it was more than worth the wait.

"I'm just so happy to have a team that can get the ball up the field, it's great to have a team that's so supportive.  I took a glimpse and I knew where [the goalkeeper] was and that's how I was able to get it past her," said Shoop, who has scored the game-winning goal in each of the three wins.

The Falcons (0-2) took control 30 minutes into the game and had more chances.  With four minutes left in the first half, freshman Sarah Gellert hit a heavy left-footed shot from 20 yards that Hightower dived to her right to make the reaction save. On the ensuing corner kick, junior Ryan Hussey had a chance in front that was cleared off the goal line be a Severn defender.

No. 14 C. Milton Wright 1, John Carroll 0, OT: Carolyn Marg scored the winner six minutes into overtime on an assist from Briana Stabile as the host Mustangs (2-0) beat the Patriots (0-1).


No. 14 Mount Saint Joseph 20, Bullis 14: Bryan Costabile scrambled 15 yards in the final 15 seconds to break a 14-all tie as the Gaels (2-0) beat the Bulldogs (0-1) in a game postponed from Saturday because of bad weather.

Bullis was ranked No. 8 in the Maryland High School Football Media State preseason poll. The Gaels beat No. Bishop McNamara, 42-7, on Aug. 30. They already have as many wins this year as last year (2-8).

Mount St. Joseph took a 7-0 lead before Bullis answered with four minutes left in the first half. Dwayne Haskins completed a 7-yard touchdown pass to Damani Neal for a 7-7 score. The Gaels retook the lead, 14-7, with 38 seconds left in the half.

Williams rushed 53 yards for a touchdown in the second half for the final tie of the game.

Boys soccer

No. 7 Calvert Hall 3, Loch Raven 0: Ben Alexander gave the visiting Cardinals (2-0) a 1-0 lead 30 minutes into the game on a cross from Brady O'Connor and Reugo Nnadozie added two insurance goals in the second half to beat the Raiders (1-1).

Calvert Hall's Yanni Kevas made five saves in the shutout.

Girls volleyball

No. 7 South River d. Archbishop Spalding, 3-0: In a match between two of the county's top volleyball teams, South River (2-0) had two things Archbishop Spalding (1-2) didn't have: height and experience.

Add the reigning Capital Gazette Communications Player of the Year and the match was somewhat anticlimactic.

Madison Carter had 11 kills, 18 digs and was 12 for 12 serving, while Nicole Powell went 15 for 15 with three aces and five kills, to lead the Seahawks to a 25-11, 25-20, 25-18 victory over the Cavaliers.
