When Julie Allen went high into the air to block Amy Hutson's blistering kill in the second game last night, it was more than obvious that sixth-ranked Glen Burnie was in over its head against No. 1 Severna Park.
Hutson had launched Glen Burnie's best shot and it was rejected impressively by Allen.
Glen Burnie's best and Severna Park's best had met far above the net, and the ball went bouncing to the floor for a Severna Park point and a 5-1 lead in the second game.
There would be no upset for the defending Anne Arundel county champion Glen Burnie volleyball team over Severna Park on this evening. The Gophers stunned the Falcons in four games last year for the county title.
This time around, it was Severna Park in a breeze in three games, 15-2, 15-7, 15-13, in the county opener for both teams.
The more experienced Falcons (4-0) were so dominant last night that coach Tim Dunbar used his entire second team in the third game after getting off to a 7-1 lead.
