The unranked Dulaney baseball team left Severna Park High School yesterday feeling it had made the biggest splash of the day in a round-robin tournament with No. 8 Mount Hebron and the host No. 2 Falcons.
In the day's final game, however, Mount Hebron pitcher Steve Swiech pitched a no-hitter against Severna Park in a 9-0 dismantling of the perennial state contender.
Relying mainly on a baffling change-up, the senior kept the Falcons off balance all game, striking out six and inducing a multitude of weak swings. Swiech (4-2) never allowed a ball out of the infield, thanks in large part to three diving stabs, and allowed only two Severna Park batters to reach base, both on walks.
Dulaney, a largely unheralded team, nearly pulled a sweep against a pair of top-10 teams, following its opening-game 6-3 win over Mount Hebron by falling one clutch hit shy in a 2-1 loss to the Falcons.
No. 3 St. Mary's 10, Georgetown Prep 6: Senior midfielder Joe Thompson registered four goals and an assist to lead the Saints to a surprisingly easy victory in Rockville.
Haverford (Pa.) 14, No. 7 McDonogh 5: The host Eagles were shut out in the first and third quarters of the McDonogh Tournament championship in Baltimore, leading to their first non-league loss in 55 games. Junior attack Jed Prossner led McDonogh (8-7) with two goals and an assist in a losing effort.
In a semifinal game, junior attack Pat Shek propelled the Eagles to a 10-1 rout of Gonzaga of Washington.
No. 15 Long Reach 3, No. 13 Arundel 0: Junior pitcher Kathy Drew limited the Wildcats to five hits over five innings, and the Lightning (12-1) tagged junior Sara Kriger with three runs in the top of the seventh to win the Arundel Tournament championship in Gambrills.
