Trying to stay with the pace the McDonogh girls soccer team brings to the field is a daunting challenge. Surrender an early goal to the No. 1 Eagles - like No. 5 Notre Dame Prep did Friday - and the task often becomes too difficult to overcome. Fueled by freshman Bridgette Andrzejewski's finish three minutes into the game, the host Eagles played with precision and confidence in earning a 7-0 win over the Blazers. Andrzejewski finished with three goals to lead the Eagles, who also got goals from Casey Martinez, Kia Rankin, Kyla Clark and Anna Bialczak.

On a day filled with sunshine, music and poetry, the prep school Yeardley Love attended reclaimed her name from the tragic headlines and put it back where she spent some of her happiest days: on a playing field. "Sports brought out so many of her memorable characteristics - her fun-loving personality, dedication, loyalty and compassion for others," Lexie Love said Sunday at Notre Dame Preparatory School in Towson, where a new turf field was dedicated to her sister. "I'm sure she's looking down on her field now with a big smile on her face and looking forward to seeing the many games played on it. " Several hundred people attended the dedication of the $1.2 million Yeardley Love Field, named for the Notre Dame Prep alum who was murdered in May 2010, just weeks before she would graduate from the University of Virginia.

One way or the other, No. 5 Maryvale was bound to have a watershed moment against archrival Notre Dame Prep on Wednesday afternoon at Meadowood Park in Lutherville. The Lions (9-3, 6-3 Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference) were either going to continue to be frustrated by the No. 7 Blazers or were going to break new ground against their longtime nemesis. Maryvale chose the latter path, defeating NDP, 12-11, behind the play of backup goalie Maggie Fuggi, who had eight saves subbing for starter Caroline Federico, who left in the first half with a knee injury.
