Hereford backed Dulaney's No. 9 field hockey team into a corner much of the second half, but the Lions pulled out a key Baltimore County victory, 1-0, in overtime. Kate Horsman scored on a feed from Dana Poist with three seconds left in the 10-minute overtime, but the victory really belonged to the Lions' defense, which fought off 18 Bulls penalty corners in the second half - two with no time left on the clock. Goalie Jenny Winders made 10 saves and a handful of critical clears in the second half as she and defenders Tara Williams, Holly Batton, Ana Heneberry and Megan Halliday held off a persistent Bulls offense.

The North Harford Hawks, last year's Class 3A field hockey state runner-up, came up a goal short in their bid to make a second straight championship game appearance as they lost, 2-1, to the Westminster Owls in the state semifinal round Monday evening. The Hawks earned their spot in the semifinals by beating top-seeded Hereford, 2-1, last Wednesday in the Class 3A North title game. Westminster took top honors in the 3A West bracket, beating Urbana, 2-1, in the regional final. Monday's state tournament match was back and forth through the first half, with Westminster earning three penalty corners, while North Harford was awarded two before the break, but neither side could find the opposing net. The best opportunity of the opening half for the Hawks came seven minutes into the game, when Emily Eline ripped a shot from 10 yards out following a penalty corner, but her attempt went wide by a foot.

The theory that every penalty corner is a potential goal became reality for the Severn field hockey team yesterday. The visiting Admirals scored twice on corners in the first half and locked down on defense in the second to topple fourth-ranked Park, 2-0, in Towson. Severn's win against an Applebee Division opponent in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland's A Conference vindicated a loss by the same score to No. 3 Bryn Mawr last Friday. "It was tough to lose to Bryn Mawr because we knew that we could beat them," said junior midfielder Julia Schechter, who assisted on both goals.

Plenty of penalty corners were earned and a handful of shots were taken, but the No. 2 Archbishop Spalding field hockey team didn't have anything to show for it in a scoreless first half against No. 15 St. Mary's. So what was there to say at halftime? "I just told them, `Keep pounding the goal and one will go in.' That's just field hockey," said Spalding coach Leslee Brady. And sure enough, coming off the Cavs' 16th penalty corner, wing Caitlin Swift scored from the left side for temporary relief.

Westminster coach Mary Rivera constantly tells her team about the importance of defense. In fact, she'll regularly make them play one person short in practice to emphasize the need to work together on defense. Those lessons paid off again Tuesday, when the visiting Owls turned in another strong effort on defense, making Meghan Macera's early goal stand up as No. 2 Westminster posted its ninth shutout of the season, a 1-0 victory over No. 8 Century in a battle of unbeaten teams.

South River made the most of a second chance Monday night. With the District V title game against Glenelg tied, 2-2, the top-ranked Gladiators threatening to score and overtime looming, the No. 3 Seahawks managed one last fast break. To stop the play, the Glenelg defense intentionally swept the ball over the end line, which resulted in a penalty corner call with 30 seconds on the clock. South River's Madelyn Santa inserted the ball to Stacey Mackintosh. During the scrum in front of the goal, the ball hit a Glenelg defender's foot, and a second corner was called with 2.5 seconds left in regulation.

Maryland's field hockey team has never forgotten how North Carolina broke its heart by scoring the game-winning goal with 11.7 seconds left in last year's national championship game. The two teams met Sunday in this year's title game, and the Terrapins gained a measure of revenge. Megan Frazer helped break a few Tar Heels' hearts when she scored with 2:10 left in the second period of sudden-death overtime to give No. 1 Maryland a 3-2, come-from-behind victory over No. 2 North Carolina at the Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex.

North Harford spent lots of time in the Bel Air circle during Tuesday night's game. The Hawks pressured the host Bobcats throughout the early minutes and pushed even more early in the second half. But Bel Air repeatedly cleared the ball away from goalie Rachelle Ciulla and out of trouble. Ciulla made a few big plays herself, and all of that helped Abby Dempsey's first-half goal stand up as Bel Air edged No. 6 North Harford, 1-0, in an Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference game.

There's an old chant in field hockey that proclaims, "Every corner is a goal." Some teams still use that chant, but many don't, because even though the penalty corner appears to give the attacking team a big advantage, on the high school level it really doesn't. "I don't even allow them to say that, it is so not true," Archbishop Spalding coach Leslee Brady said. "Here's the reality: Most goals in field hockey are scored in the mass confusion scrum in front of the goal. Once a corner is called, that confusion's taken away.
