Key 10, Mount Carmel 4: A three-goal deficit swiftly doubled as the Obezags monopolized the draw and overpowered the host Cougars in Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland C Conference play.

Senior midfielder Hannah Nairn scored four of those 10 goals, including two that sparked an onslaught from Key (4-4) at the top of the second half. Regaining a firm grasp against a budding Mount Carmel rally came down to focusing on good passes for the Obezags.” I think we were really focused on not letting that [get to us] and staying collected,” Nairn said.

The teams may have been even in draw controls for the first quarter, but it was Key that dominated the field. When Mount Carmel pulled the draw, twice, Key scooped the turnover and delivered it as a goal, twice. When the Obezags captured the draw, those, too, became goals.

Junior midfielder Lia Porterfield twice turned her own misfortune at the draw into Key goals. Down 4-0, the Cougars (0-6) huddled at a timeout. For a moment, Mount Carmel had Key in its sights. The hosts emerged with a goal along with the first two won draws, and closed the gap to three. Cate Trockenbrot led the charge, netting her first of two scores.

Archbishop Curley 18, Annapolis Area Christian 4: With little to no advanced scouting, Archbishop Curley junior attacker Caleb Haire said his Friars arrived at Annapolis Area Christian School with a general plan of attack for an Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference lacrosse showdown. Considering Curley left Anne Arundel County with a resounding victory, maybe just winging it should be the way to go the rest of the season.


”There wasn’t a real game plan,” said Haire, who exploded for seven goals in the win. “We couldn’t get any game film. We just came together as a team. We were able to exploit their defense and see their weaknesses real fast.”

Real fast indeed as Lee Rock opened the scoring 33 seconds into the match on a running shot from the right of the goal. Haire and Denzel Evans (three goals) each added a pair of first quarter goals for a 5-0 lead.

Haire scored on a counterattack and again after scooping a loose ball near the goal. Evans capitalized on a fast break and then finished after weaving through multiple defenders with under a minute left in the quarter.
