Leaning on a balanced attack, the No. 1 McDonogh girls lacrosse team was able to survive a late scare in a 13-12 win at No. 8 St. Mary's in a key Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference game yesterday in Annapolis.
Hannah Franklin, Brooks Lawler and Taylor Cummings each scored three times to help the Eagles build a 13-9 lead with six minutes left in regulation.
"Going down there to play at St. Mary's is always a tough thing to do. So to come away with a win after the long bus ride and their senior day is a pretty good accomplishment. We still have some things to work on, though," coach Chris Robinson said.
No. 4 John Carroll 18, Roland Park 14: Annie Thomas finished with four goals and three assists as the Patriots won the IAAM A Conference game.
No. 13 Severn 15, Archbishop Spalding 13: Tied at 9 at the half, the Admirals were able to break through with Mackenzie Carroll providing three goals and five assists to lead the attack.
No. 11 Franklin 4, Eastern Tech 0: Mary Sobota threw a three-hitter with 11 strikeouts and Kim Dorsey went 2-for-2 with a double and two RBI as the Indians improved to 10-0 on the season.
