The No. 10 Broadneck softball team was determined to not let No. 14 Glen Burnie's Hannah Eslick beat it. And she didn't.
Two-time all-Baltimore County pitcher Ally Thompson faced Eslick, a two-time all-county shortstop and Maryland recruit, four times with runners on base. Thompson walked her three times and induced a groundout to third as the Bruins won Wednesday, 1-0.
No. 5 Northeast 1, South River 0: Alexis Brengle singled and and drove in the winning run in the sixth inning to lift the host Eagles (2-0) over the Seahawks (3-1).
Havre de Grace 2, Joppatowne 1: Leah DuBois struck out 11 to lead the host Warriors (2-2) past the Mariners (1-2).
South River 2, Northeast 0: Ethan Falsone went seven innings, gave up two hits, walked one and struck out eight as the visiting Seahawks (3-1) shut out the Eagles (2-2).
No. 12 Broadneck 12, Annapolis 8: Bruins (2-0) goalie Cole Pellicano, a transfer from St. Mary's who stopped 21 shots in a win over Kent Island to begin the season, made 16 saves against the host Panthers (0-2).
No. 1 McDonogh 16, St. Mary's 6: Notre Dame-bound Savannah Buchanan had a hat trick to lead the visiting Eagles (4-0, 1-0 Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference) past the Saints (2-2, 0-2).
The victory was McDonogh's 137th straight.
