It’s the second county win for Oakland Mills (2-6 in the league).

Rachel Hunter scored on a penalty kick for Oakland Mills about 10 minutes into the game but “we let up and went into a slump the last 20 minutes of the first half,” said coach Christina Bleivik, “and Glenelg got right back into the game.”

Sydney Peirce scored the tying goal for Glenelg on an assist from Amanda Kordenbrock.

Peters’ winning goal came with 15 minutes left in the second half.

“I am very pleased with the way my girls played tonight,” Bleivik said.

Kelly Geist had six saves for Glenelg (1-6), said coach Maureen Hammond.

Capitalizing on opportunities

Marriotts Ridge got two goals from Morgan Crable in a 2-0 shutout over Mt. Hebron.

Crable scored in each half in the win. Her first came off a shot that “lofted” over the keeper’s head with 13 minutes left in the opening stanza and was unassisted, said coach Robin Grey after Tuesday’s game.

When Alexis Zadjura was fouled inside the box in the second half, Crable “sunk the penalty kick, handling the pressure beautifully,” said Grey.

“Much of the game was played between the 18s tonight,” Grey added. “When our opportunities did come up, we capitalized. Mt. Hebron came on strong in the second half with a number of shots, but our defense held on. Jenna Bergquist also came up with a few big saves in the end to secure the win.

“Bottom line, I couldn't be more proud of the effort my girls showed tonight. With the adversity we faced this week with injuries, every girl who could play gave it their all and that is what made the difference,” Grey said.

Bergquist had eight saves for Marriotts Ridge, now 6-1-1 in the county.

Atholton dominates second half

After being held scoreless by Reservoir for the first 40 minutes, Atholton rallied in the final 40 for a 3-0 win.

The Raiders “came out strong in the second half and dominated,” coach Stephanie Stoutenborough said.

Katrina Macadoff, Maddie Boccio and Olivia Healy scored for Atholton, with Kaelin Shaw and Macadoff getting assists in Tuesday’s game.

Sage Mayhew had 10 saves for Atholton (6-2 county).
Howard can’t hold lead on River Hill

Howard scored six minutes into the game but unbeaten River Hill got four unanswered goals to win, 4-1.

Sheridan Street scored off an assist from Katie Arensmier seven minutes after Howard’s opening goal to tie the game and Michaela Hennessey, off an assist from Jen Voyton at the 18-minute mark, got the go-ahead goal.

Lauren Jones scored off a corner kick, with Haily Emrick getting the assist 15 minutes into the second half. Alex Hamer dribbled through the defense to score unassisted with five minutes left in the Oct. 9 game.
