CHESTERTOWN — Lauren DuVall had one goal and two assists and Lindsay Ladas added a goal and an assist to lead the Falcons to a 4-1 victory over Bethesda-Chevy Chase on Saturday in the Class 4A state final.

The Falcons won their state-record 22nd state title, also a record for one team in any public school sport in the state.

"We started out a little sluggish, but then they started turning it on," Severna Park coach Ann Andrews said.

Severna Park dominated play following the early Bethesda-Chevy Chase goal and finally got on the board in the final minute of the first half when DuVall took a pass off a penalty corner from Ladas and buried a shot to tie the game at 1 at the half.

DuVall and Ladas connected for a second time six minutes into the second half when DuVall fed Ladas for the go-ahead goal.

Beatrice Chaudoin added a goal on a penalty corner off an assist from Jess Valvano. Senior Cameron Stadlin rounded out the scoring in the final minutes.

Since winning its first state championship in 1979, the Falcons haven't gone more than five years in between titles.
