Kaity Browne scored twice to lead the Scorpions to their first victory of the season. Browne also assisted Oakland Mills’ other goal by Sara Novak. Paige Andrews saved four shots en route to the shutout, while Hammond (0-11) was led by goalie Caroline Schreier’s 19 saves.
While the win is the first for Oakland Mills (1-9), the Scorps have been competitive in almost every game this season under first-year coach Alex Douyon. Of their nine losses, three have come by one goal, five by two goals and one by three goals. One of the Scorpions’ losses in March was a 2-1 defeat in double overtime to Glenelg, which last week defeated River Hill in penalty kicks to advance to the county semifinals.
