Dodson was busy and productive on both sides of the ball as the Wildcats stunned then No. 15-ranked Severna Park, 30-14, leaving both teams 4-3. The 6-foot, 220-pound senior fullback/linebacker rushed 17 times for 90 yards, including two 1-yard touchdown dives, and on defense made eight unassisted tackles to help stop the potent Falcons offense.

After his then second-ranked Falcons knocked off then No. 1 Centennial in the final of the Bulldog Classic at North Caroline High to end the Eagles' 55-match winning streak (15-11 and 15-12), coach Tim Dunbar was indecisive. "There is no way you can separate the contributions of Julie or Jen," Dunbar said.

For the week, which included victories over North Caroline, Northern and Centennial to win the Bulldog classic plus two 3-0 sweeps of county foes Glen Burnie and Northeast, Kasprzak had 78 kills, 23 aces, four blocks and was 97-for-103 serving for a percentage of 94.2.

Conner racked up 73 kills, 13 aces, four blocks and was 42-for-49 (85.7) serving.

J. P. Noon, Arundel

The 6-foot-3, 250-pound Noon's power blocking at tackle enabled the Wildcats to out-rush Severna Park, 182-104, and more importantly control the clock in a 30-14 upset of the Falcons. "We ran over J. P. all night and kept the ball away from them. They only had three offensive series in the second half," coach Bill Zucco said.

Football, offense

Jason Smith, Broadneck

Smith matched his team record for most receptions in a game with 10 for 143 yards and two touchdowns to set a school scoring record as Broadneck outlasted Northeast, 22-20. The Bruins' junior end has school records for touchdowns (13) and most points scored (78) with three games left.

Jacob Schaeffer, Broadneck

Schaeffer's 20-yard field goal in the third period proved crucial in the Bruins' 22-20 victory over upset-minded Northeast.

Mike Mazzola, Old Mill

Mazzola scored one goal and assisted on another as the then 15th- ranked Patriots pulled off a mild 3-1 upset of then No. 8 North County.

Girls soccer

Teri Frelichowski, Meade

The winless Mustangs dropped two more by 3-0 scores to then No. 13 Broadneck and South River, but not because of this frequently peppered senior goalie. Frelichowski had 39 saves in the two games, including 21 vs. Broadneck, to run her season total to 133.

Field hockey

Tressa Campbell, Severna Park

Campbell led the top-ranked Falcons of coach Lil Shelton to two more wins last week by 4-0 over Spalding and 2-0 over St. Mary's. The senior right winger had two goals and an assist against Spalding and scored her ninth goal of the season in the shutout of St. Mary's.
