David Verostic, who is in his second season as No. 2 Broadneck's volleyball coach, will be away from the team for an unspecified period of time.

Parents of players on the volleyball team were informed of Verostic's absence in an email from Broadneck principal David Smith on Tuesday. Assistant coach Lindsay Harden will coach the team while Verostic is away, according to the email.

Reached by phone Wednesday, Verostic declined to comment and said only that he has not been asked to step down.

The Bruins, who are one of the favorites in the county and the Class 4A East Region, are off to a 2-0 start and will play at Sherwood today.

No. 8 Gilman 2, John Carroll 1: Cole Sutton and Fabio Beltran scored to lead the host Greyhounds (2-1) past the Patriots (0-2).

Archbishop Spalding 1, No. 11 Mount Saint Joseph 0: Nick Ashbeck controlled a cross from Aaron Barclay and scored with 11 minutes to go as the host Cavaliers won their second game in two days, in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association  A Conference opener.

Ashbeck's goal was the fourth in-deep opportunity of the game for Archbishop Spalding (2-2). Hunter Alchin was wide right on a one-touch in the first half and hit the left pipe two minutes into the second, and Barclay could not score on a 1-on-1 with Gaels keeper Nick Deshong.

"That goal was bound to happen after all the other chances," Ashbeck said. "The ball got onto my foot and I was fortunate to put it in."
