September 19, 2014|By Glenn Graham | The Baltimore Sun

The Reservoir boys soccer team pushed forward immediately at Marriotts Ridge on Thursday.

Goals soon followed.

Quinton Simmons opened the scoring midway through the first half, and then Serigne Gueye and Stephen Bork scored three minutes apart early in the second to send the No. 9 Gators to a 3-1 win over the Mustangs.

Reservoir, which got two assists and a dominating performance in the middle from senior Kyle Saunderson, improves to 4-1 overall and 3-1 in Howard County play. 

After seeing a couple of quality chances go for naught in the early minutes, Simmons settled a long pass from Saunderson and then turned and fired a left-footed shot from 12 yards. The Gators put the game away early in the second half with two more quality finishes.

"I was really pleased with our complete game," first-year coach Josh Sullivan said. "There was some five-minute stretches here and there but there was a big improvement from what we had. We had some quality, quality chances and building up the play, not kind of getting lucky with defensive lapses." We earned it so I'm really proud."

 After winning four state titles in the past five seasons, Marriotts Ridge (0-3-2) is rebuilding and looking to improve. The Mustangs got a strong performance from sophomore Simon Klementsen, who scored late in the game.

No. 2 Severna Park 1, Chesapeake-AA 0: Daniel Kwon scored on a penalty kick to lift the Falcons (3-0-1) over the host Cougars (4-1).

No. 5 River Hill 3, Glenelg 0: The host Hawks (6-0) were led by a goal each from Luke Turney, Robert Dass and Mike Heitzman. The Gladiators fell to 1-3.

No. 13 Broadneck 8, Northeast 0: Ahmed Babiker had two goals and an assist and Eric Hertel had a goal and three assists to lead the host Bruins (4-1) past the Eagles (2-4).

Broadneck led 5-0 at the break.

No. 7 Glenelg d. Mount Hebron, 3-0: The Gladiators (3-1) swept the visiting Vikings (3-1) just two days after Mount Hebron defeated the same Reservoir team that beat Glenelg earlier this season.

Glenelg won, 25-18, 25-17, 25-21.

"The county is so top-heavy this year. Wilde Lake is pretty good, Howard is going to be good, Centennial is good," Vikings coach Michael Moynihan said. "Everybody is good, so it's really going to be a dogfight."
