Halftime: Oldfields, 10-9.
Friends 14, Glenelg Country School 5 (IAAM B Conference quarterfinal)
Wilde Lake 20, Hammond 8
Grayson Corbett tied Wilde Lake’s single-game scoring record with 12 goals as the Wildecats defeated Hammond. Beth Glaros, now playing for the University of Maryland, set the old mark in 2010 in a game against Oakland Mills.
Corbett also had an assist and 12 draw controls as the Wilde Lake seniors played their last regular season game on their home field.
Of the five senior players, only one was on the team last year – goalkeeper Eolandae Brown. She had three saves against Hammond.
Two of the other seniors did not play their junior year. The other two are first-year players recruited from the girls soccer team. “They are so athletic that they can pick up lacrosse and they are eager to figure it out,” Corbett said.
Although she did the bulk of her team’s scoring, Corbett said she likes it best when everyone is involved.
“It’s definitely more exciting when everyone is a part of the win,” she said.
Corbett pointed out that senior Jordyn Carter had a pair of goals.
“She stepped up and scored,” Corbett said.
Freshmen Kate Glaros (four goals) and Rachel Lazris (two) also had notable showings.
Brigid Mangan led Hammond with three goals.
The victory was Wilde Lake’s sixth of the year. The Wildecats haven’t won that many games in a season since 2004.
“I love this team,” said coach Davia Procida. “I’m a really happy, proud coach.”
The Class 3A/2A post-season playoffs begin Wednesday. Wilde Lake plays at Reservoir and Hammond hosts Atholton.
