Greg McBride scored twice, once in each half, as host Gilman upset top-ranked Calvert Hall (6-4), 2-0, in boys soccer yesterday.
"When you beat a team like Calvert Hall, it means that much more, but we're going to have to work extremely hard and continue to improve if we want to make the playoffs and, more importantly, do something in the playoffs," Gilman coach Jon Seal said.
He added that shutting down Calvert Hall's Christian Barreiro was instrumental in the win. "I think anytime you play Calvert Hall, you have to account for Barreiro. [Senior defender] George Gruner did a great job of knowing where he was at all times."
McBride scored his first goal with 5:05 left in the first half to put the Greyhounds (6-2-2) up 1-0. Early in the second half, Sam Frank assisted on McBride's second goal.
No. 2 Archbishop Curley 2, Mount St. Joseph 1 -- The Gaels (5-4) took a 1-0 halftime lead, but Mikias Teketele's two second-half goals led the Friars to victory. Curley improves to 11-1 overall. Bosh Kamara set up the game-winning goal with 12 minutes left to play.
No. 11 Towson 1, No. 12 Perry Hall 0 -- Tom Hebb scored the game-winning goal on an assist by Will Alpern with 15 minutes left to play to give the Generals (3-1) a win over the visiting Gators.
Catonsville 3, No. 14 Eastern Tech 0 -- Micah Powell scored twice to power the host Comets (6-0) past the Mavericks. Tyler Beard gave Catonsville a 1-0 lead at the 20-minute mark of the first half before Powell scored both of his second-half goals. The Comets' Jeffrey Woods made four saves.
No. 15 Marriotts Ridge 3, Wilde Lake 0 -- Josh Stover scored twice and had an assist as the visiting Mustangs (4-0-2) beat the Wildecats (3-2).
No. 2 John Carroll 4, Mercy 0 -- Allyson Carey scored two goals as the host Patriots (8-1) defeated the Magic.
No. 12 Institute of Notre Dame 3, Mount de Sales 1 -- Sabrina Mull, Kat Sipes, Mandy Marshton each scored a goal to lead the Indians (6-2-1) over the visiting Sailors. Goalkeeper Lauren Vetock stopped 14 shots for IND.
No. 3 South River 3, No. 8 Chesapeake-AA 2 -- Shannon Denno scored the go-ahead goal as the Seahawks (6-0) defeated the Cougars (5-1).
Liberty 3, No. 12 Francis Scott Key 1 -- Liberty sent a resounding message to those who might have written off the eight-time defending Carroll County champion after a couple of early season losses: We're not done yet. Led by the trio of outside hitter Kelly Vieira (11 kills), middle hitter Amanda McCracken (10) and outside hitter Rachel Kohler (nine), the host Lions pulled out an emotion-packed first game, then seemed to get stronger as the match progressed in a 32-30, 17-25, 29-25, 25-14 upset win over Francis Scott Key. The victory over the previously unbeaten Eagles was a huge one for the Lions (4-2 overall, 2-2 county). "My girls had a little bit of a chip on their shoulder," said Liberty first-year coach Laura Ritter. Led by outside hitters Kellee Stonesifer, Christine Isenberg and Crystal Baugher, Key (5-1, 1-1) built a 23-19 lead and appeared on the verge of a victory. The Lions, however, rallied for five straight points to take a 24-23 lead on Caitlyn Poff's ace, and Liberty took the game on McCracken's kill. After dropping the second game to even the match, Liberty then took an 8-1 lead and took advantage of unforced errors, including four missed serves on five attempts at one point, to clinch the match.
