Losing to your archrival can sting for a long time, especially when it comes in the regional playoffs, deals your team its only loss of the season and propels that rival on to the state championship. Elizabeth Barranco and her Severna Park girls lacrosse teammates drew on those feelings Saturday to drive an early second-half barrage and avenge that regional semifinal loss to defending state Class 4A-3A champ South River. Barranco scored the first two goals as the No. 6 Falcons rallied for five in less than seven minutes, cooling off hot South River goalie Kelsea Donnelly en route to an 11-8 victory over the No. 5 Seahawks in the season opener for both.
