Baltimore Sun’s BEST party in 2 weeks




Mike Gvozden

Severna Park

Gvozden, who is headed to Johns Hopkins, capped a marvelous four-year career with 17 saves in the Falcons' 7-4 victory over Dulaney in the Class 4A-3A final. Severna Park won four county and regional titles and made it to the state final four straight years with Gvozden in the cage. This year's state title was the Falcons' second in three years.

Stopping 70 percent of the shots he faced and recording 170 saves, Gvozden is the first county player to start in four consecutive county and state championship games and the first goalie to do so in state tournament play. Anne Arundel's first four-time All-County goalie, he finished with a county-record 751 saves.


Jim Beardmore

Severna Park

The fiery, third-year coach led the Falcons to their second Class 4A-3A state title in three years and an undefeated record in county play en route to their fifth straight county crown. This year's state crown was extra sweet because it came by 7-4 over bitter rival Dulaney.

Beardmore, a former All-American goalie at Maryland, is perfect in county and regional title games in his three seasons and is 50-8 overall.
