The good news was that the first half of yesterday's girls lacrosse game between No. 6 Broadneck and No. 11 South River was evenly matched. The bad news - for South River, anyway - was that there was another half to play.
The visiting Bruins (5-1) used a 6-0 second-half run to pull away for a 16-11 victory. Karri Ellen Johnson led the charge with five goals. Lindsay Mitchell had three goals and three assists.
Stephanie Peterson, Ali Mattingly, Brooke Griffin and Shannon Carta each scored two goals for the Seahawks (6-1).
The score was tied at 7 at halftime.
McDonogh 10, St, Mary's 9, 2OT -- Kitty Cullen scored with 27 seconds left in the second overtime to lift the visiting Eagles over the Saints (7-2). The Eagles were down 6-4 at halftime, but scored the first three goals of the second half to take a 7-6 lead. Caroline Cochran, who recorded two of her three goals in the second half, scored to help the Saints re-take the lead and the teams then traded goals before McDonogh tied it with two minutes left in regulation to force overtime.
St. John's 12, Cardinal Gibbons 11, 2OT -- Tyler Catalani scored with 2:35 left in the second overtime as the Vikings (5-4) defeated the host Crusaders (1-3). Korin Pierce had four goals and Luis Pierce added two to lead the Vikings. Christian Klimczyk kept the Crusaders in the game, making 18 saves, 11 in the first half. Dave Stark was one of three players with three goals for Gibbons.
Friends 1, Mount Carmel 0 -- Jerry Donabedian broke up a pitchers' duel when he singled up the middle in the bottom of the seventh inning to produce the game's lone run. Winning pitcher Wick Eisenberg needed only 72 pitches for his three-hitter. The left-hander picked off two runners at first base and struck out eight. Losing pitcher Stephon Dingle struck out nine while pitching a two-hitter.
Harford Tech 4, Fallston 3 -- Jared West singled home two runs in the bottom of the seventh to help the Cobras (3-3) edge the Cougars. Jason Young went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored for Harford Tech.
