HCC lacrosse, baseball teams post wins

For The Aegis

The top-ranked Harford Community College Fighting Owls women’s lacrosse team remained undefeated on Wednesday afternoon, dropping host Potomac Stat for the second time this season, 20-3.

Much like their meeting in Harford's regular season opener, the Fighting Owls took control early and cruised from there. Eleven different Harford players scored, including a team-leading four goals from Sydney McKemy. Rachel Wilson (Havre de Grace) followed behind with three goals, seven draw control wins and a team-high five ground balls. Harford is now 7-0 on the year.

Men’s lacrosse wins, too

No. 2 Harford scored six unanswered goals to end the third and begin the fourth quarter Wednesday, overtaking host Essex for an eventual 17-11 defeat of the Knights.

Fighting Owls' goalie Barret Casto had his best showing of the year in the cage, tallying a career-high 18 saves over 60 minutes, including six stops in the opening quarter of the contest.

He, along with the rest of Harford's defense, limited the Knights to a 2-for-6 mark on extra man opportunities. Eli Doyle’s goal sparked the Harford comeback midway through the third quarter, tying the game at 8-8 with an unassisted blast with 7:42 left.

Grady Dipeso (C. Milton Wright) gave Harford the final lead of the day with an unassisted goal of his own just 2 minutes later.

The Fighting Owls have now won eight straight games. They improve to 8-1 on the season, with an unblemished 3-0 mark in Maryland JUCO Conference play.

Baseball wins run fest

Harford claimed its 18th straight win on Tuesday, knocking off the CCBC-Dundalk Lions, 16-12, on the road.

The Fighting Owls busted the game open in the top of the sixth, plating six runs on two hits, including a triple from Reyce Curnane that scored two runs for a 13-5 lead.

Dundalk pushed back in the final two innings with a couple of long balls and a two-RBI single, but Harford reliever Teddy Blumenauer retired the Lions with a pair of strikeouts and a ground out in the ninth.

Harford improves to 28-5 (15-1 Maryland JUCO) after the win.
