Calvert Hall's Tom Tamberrino played perhaps his best game of the season yesterday in holding Curley's All-Metro striker, Giuliano Celenza, scoreless.
But Tamberrino and the No. 7 Cardinals (6-3-1, 2-3-1) battled the area's No. 2 team to a scoreless tie over 100 minutes of play.
"It's frustrating, and I can't be happy with this tie," said Tamberrino.
The draw ended Calvert Hall's worst losing streak at three games, but allowed their Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference rivals (6-0-1, 5-0-1) to extend their four-year undefeated streak at home to 36-0-2.
The Cardinals had a shots-on-goal advantage of 22-19, but Curley keeper Brad Bush saved 18.
The shutout was the third for Calvert Hall keeper Bruce Engle, whose 16 saves included five of Celenza's six shots.
"They did a good job on me. He [Tamberrino] just stayed with me the whole way," Celenza said. "But it's pretty important that we stayed undefeated on our field. It'll just make me come out tougher the next time."
