There were no brag­ging rights or ex­tra mo­men­tum earned by ei­ther par­tic­i­pant in Thurs­day’s Anne Arun­del County field hockey cham­pi­onship game at Ch­e­sa­peake.

Af­ter 60 min­utes of hockey that failed to pro­duce a win­ner, No. 3 South River and No. 14 Sev­erna Park will share the county ti­tle af­ter play­ing to a 1-1 tie. It was de­cided be­fore the game that should the teams be tied af­ter reg­u­la­tion, over­time would not be played and the teams would be de­clared co-cham­pi­ons.

The Sea­hawks’ Maia Cheeks scored mid­way through the first half. The Fal­cons’ McKenna Lee tied the game with 4:54 left in reg­u­la­tion.

“We’re hope­fully go­ing to be play­ing them, or maybe Broad­neck, in the play­offs, so this was re­ally good prac­tice for our first play­off game,” Lee said. “It was nice to get back out in the com­pet­i­tive at­mos­phere again be­cause we’re go­ing to have a cou­ple prac­tices, so get­ting back into game play and fig­ur­ing out how to work to­gether was good. We saw this as an­other op­por­tu­nity to prac­tice, which is great.”

Sev­erna Park (9-4-2) car­ried the play early and at­tempted the game’s first three penalty cor­ners over the first 14 min­utes. South River’s Caro­line A. Kerr de­fended the Fal­cons’ sec­ond penalty cor­ner well to deny a chance, then Hunter Chad­wick cre­ated a chance for Sev­erna Park three min­utes later, but her pass into the cir­cle failed to con­nect with a stick.

The Sea­hawks (13-1-1) took ad­van­tage of their first op­por­tu­nity as Cheeks scored off a penalty cor­ner at the 13:28 mark.

NO. 2 ARCH­BISHOP SPALDING 2, BRYN MAWR 1: Jenna Gar­den as­sisted Mar­got Lawn for a 1-0 Cava­liers lead in the first half and scored the game-win­ner with seven min­utes left in the game to beat the vis­it­ing Mawr­tians (2-12, 1-10 In­ter­scholas­tic Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion of Mary­land A Con­fer­ence). Spalding im­proved to 16-3 and 9-2. NO. 5 GAR­RI­SON FOR­EST 2, ST. MARY’S1: The vis­it­ing Saints (4-7-1, 3-7-1 IAAM A Con­fer­ence) took a 1-0 lead on a penalty stroke, but the Griz­zlies (11-5, 8-4) scored twice in the sec­ond half to win.

Ali Baratta and Macy Miller had Gar­ri­son For­est’s goals.

NO. 13 JOHN CAR­ROLL 2, SEVERN 1: Kasey New­man scooped up a loose ball and scored the game-win­ner in the sec­ond half as the host Pa­tri­ots (9-3, 6-1 IAAM B Con­fer­ence) beat the Ad­mi­rals (5-8-1, 3-4).

MARY­VALE 5, IN­STI­TUTE OF NOTRE DAME 0: Lizzie de Guz­man scored twice to lead the host Lions (9-1, 8-0 IAAM B Con­fer­ence) past the Pen­guins (2-8, 0-8).

Lisa Zoch (11) and Sam Miller (18) com­bined for 29 kills to help the Raiders stay tied for first place in the county.

“It’s nice hav­ing those runs, but it’s even nicer when you can stop the other team’s run,” Atholton coach Rob Moy said. “If you can stop the other team’s runs and you only have a cou­ple, that’s fine.”

Those runs were ev­i­dent right from the start. The Raiders won three points in a row four times, and then fin­ished the set by win­ning four straight. Atholton also got ev­ery­one in­volved. Six play­ers had at least one kill, ace or block.
