Here’s a roundup of high school varsity action around Anne Arundel County on Friday, Oct. 30, 2020:
St. Mary’s 3, Mt. Carmel 0: The Saints opened their fall season with a win over Mt. Carmel, winning in three sets — 25-4, 25-14, 25-20. Setter Hannah Mendenhall paced the Saints with five aces and 13 assists.
Bridget Shanley added seven kills and a block; Olivia Colella had six kills and a block; Hannah Mendenhall had 13 assists, five aces and a dig; and Brooke Heary totaled five kills, an ace and two digs for St. Mary’s.
Concordia Prep 2, AACS 1: Concordia Prep scored a penalty kick in the last minute of regulation to edge the Eagles in a tight affair.
Concordia Prep opened the scoring in the first 10 minutes of the match and AACS tied things up with a score in the last ten minutes of the first half, which otherwise did not see too many chances. Center back Sean Wood assisted his defensive partner Lanre Abayomi for AACS’s lone goal.
Senior Payton Madore opened the scoring, then junior Riley Organt scored twice and junior David Peters added one goal and one assist in the win.
“It’s part of rebuilding this program,” Spalding coach Patrick Crawford said. “We’re trying to find that mix and balance, and tonight we just didn’t defend well. Offensively, we have to make better runs and be more dynamic with the ball, and tonight once we gave up the second goal and the third — emptying the bench for younger guys to get some experience. [Calvert Hall] played well tonight, they knocked and they were hungry and we have to be able to match their intensity.”
The Cavaliers, which opened with a 1-0 non-Catholic League win over Annapolis Area Christian School earlier in the week, take a 1-1 mark into Wednesday’s 5 p.m. home game against Loyola Blakefield.
