It should come as no surprise that a South River-Severna Park field hockey game ended with a one-goal difference. What is surprising is how the No. 5 Falcons (10-2) were able to carry the play for most of the game in their 2-1 victory over the No. 4 Seahawks (8-3) on Tuesday at Kinder Farm Park. Cassy Zachares and Lauren Duvall scored second-half goals for Severna Park, which erased a 1-0 halftime deficit by taking 11 shots in the second half and won its third straight game since losses to the Seahawks and Cape Henlopen (Del.)

Opportunistic on offense and dogged on defense, the Broadneck boys soccer team accomplished something against Severna Park on Thursday that no other team has since 2012. The No. 11 Bruins got a goal from junior midfielder Ford Murphy midway through the second half and sturdy work on defense the rest of the way to earn a 2-1 win over the defending Class 4A state champion Falcons, ending Severna Park's 27-game unbeaten streak. Severna Park went 17-0-2 last season. The No. 2 Falcons, now 7-1-1 and 5-1-1 in Anne Arundel, finally found their match Thursday at Kinder Farm Park as the Bruins improved to 8-1-1 and stayed undefeated in county play at 7-0. Senior defender Will Hankins, assigned to mark the Falcons' All-Metro senior forward Daniel Kwon, was understandably tired following the game.

A Severna Park woman was sentenced Tuesday to just over three years in prison after pleading guilty to a mortgage scam involving $4.7 million in fraudulent loans, the Maryland U.S. attorney's office said. Mary Anne Dean, 60, brokered loans in a scheme pitched to homeowners trying to avoid foreclosure, according to her plea agreement. The homeowners were told they could sell to investors, stay on as renters, and then buy back their homes after getting their finances in order. Dean, who ran a mortgage brokerage firm called Sunset Mortgage Co. from her home, submitted falsified mortgage applications to secure the loans for the "investors" — relatives and acquaintances of a co-defendant, Charles Donaldson of Bowie.
