Gately, who coach Lil Shelton said "makes things happen with her outstanding speed and stick work," scored all three goals in the top-ranked (7-0) Falcons' 3-0 victory over Annapolis (3-2-1) and played great defense in a 3-0 win over previously unbeaten Chesapeake (6-1).

Kenny Boyd, Annapolis

The Panthers' senior workhorse rushed for 215 yards and four touchdowns (31, 25, 22, 7) on 23 carries in a 35-13 romp over Meade (2-4). Boyd, who has 854 yards rushing on 130 attempts (6.6 avg.) with 13 touchdowns, scored his last three touchdowns in the second half to break open a close game. Annapolis (5-1) led 14-7 at the half.

Football, defense

James Rivers, North County

Rivers, an integral part of the Knights' superb linebacking corps, was in on eight tackles, including two sacks, and had two fumble recoveries in North County's thrilling 27-20 victory at Severna Park. The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder's second fumble recovery at the Falcons' 24-yard line in the final period set up the game-winning touchdown, a one-yard plunge by Troy Fowlkes.

Football, specialist

Teon Carter, North County

Carter's electrifying 87-yard kickoff return early in the final period enabled the 10th-ranked Knights (5-1) to tie No. 15 Severna Park (4-2) at 20 and go on to post a 27-20 victory. Carter also caught five passes for 106 yards and two touchdowns.

Steve Neuberger, Severna Park

Neuberger scored both goals in a 2-0 victory over Annapolis (2-3) and scored the second goal in a 2-0 win over Chesapeake (2-3-1) as the Falcons (5-1) ran their winning streak to five.


Susan Wren, Severna Park

Wren led the Falcons (4-0) to a pair of 3-0 match sweeps of Annapolis and Chesapeake. Coach Tim Dunbar said Wren, "engineered our offense with great efficiency" after his 5-foot-8 senior setter went 35-for-37 serving (94.6 percent), had 44 assists and 12 aces in the two wins.
