Stellar regular seasons propelled the Broadneck and Severna Park girls lacrosse teams to be the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds, respectively, in the 4A East region and they battled like the best two teams during a double overtime thriller on June 11. The Bruins won the game 10-9 after trailing for most of the game.
“Today’s game was all about character building,” said Broadneck head coach Katy Kelley.
For the Bruins, sophomore Mary Moore, senior Alexis Abe, junior Julia Sokolowski and sophomore Lexi Dupcak each scored two points. Juniors Sam Lavorini and Reagan Baldwin each scored one point.
Severna Park was led by junior Emma Marsh and sophomore Regan McDonnell, who each scored two points. Junior Delanie Abere, sophomores Charlotte Diez and Sophia Miller, and junior Theresa Bragg each scored one point.
After the first half of the game, the Falcons led the Bruins 6-2.
“We were never in that spot before,” Kelley said. “We had to find our grit, ourselves, and inch our way back.”
The momentum shifted in the second half, with the Bruins catching a second wind to bring the deficit to two goals, 9-7, at the 8:26 mark.
In less than 13 seconds, Moore came up with big plays, scoring one goal and intercepting a pass to score another to tie the game at 9-9.
After trading possession of the ball, the game went into overtime. With one second on the clock, the Bruins attempted a shot, but Falcons junior goalie Sarah Krause saved the shot, forcing double overtime.
During the second overtime, the Bruins and the Falcons traded possession of the ball, but Moore scored the game-winning point to seal the 10-9 victory.
“The girls played a tremendous game,” said Severna Park coach Katilyn Hines. “They fought hard, and I could not be more proud of them.”
Broadneck has advanced to the Maryland state championships. The girls are scheduled to play Monday at a time and location yet to be announced.
