Mallory Crosland capped a birdie binge with one at the 17th hole to finally put away Andrea Kraus, 2 and 1, in a pairing of former champions that produced some of the best golf in the opening round of the 82nd Maryland State Women's Amateur at Maryland Golf & Country Club in Bel Air yesterday. Three-time winner Crosland, from the Chevy Chase Club, never trailed, although two-time winner Kraus, from Woodholme CC, drew within one in a torrid three-hole stretch. Kraus birdied 14, both players birdied 15 and Kraus then birdied 16. Crosland fittingly clinched the decision when she reached the green in two and two-putted at the 458-yard 17th.
