The sports me­dia gath­ered at Spar­rows Point last week, with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from at least four pub­li­ca­tions on hand to see an an­tic­i­pated matchup be­tween the Here­ford and Spar­rows Point girls soc­cer teams.

It was a re­match of last sea­son’s Bal­ti­more County cham­pi­onship game, won by Here­ford 3-2 with two goals in the last two-anda-half min­utes — as many goals as the Poin­t­ers gave up in five post­sea­son games as they marched to their fifth con­sec­u­tive Class 1A state ti­tle.

But the me­dia and the fans, in­clud­ing a large con­tin­gent of Here­ford sup­port­ers, got to see only 10 score­less min­utes be­fore the game was sus­pended due to an ap­proach­ing thun­der­storm.

The game has not yet been resched­uled and may be can­celled.

Spar­rows Point was to host Ken­wood on Tues­day in its be­lated sea­son-opener, then host Tow­son on Wed­nes­day.

Pat­ap­sco was to play Here­ford in its sea­son-opener on Sept. 5, but the school was closed that day due to the county heat pol­icy for schools with­out air con­di­tion­ing.

The Pa­tri­ots were to host Franklin on Wed­nes­day in their sea­son-opener.

Dun­dalk, mean­while, got in two games last week and is off to a 2-0 start af­ter beat­ing Lans­downe 8-0 on Sept. 5 and Over­lea 3-2 on Fri­day.

The Owls will try to keep their win­ning streak alive as they were to ravel to New Town on Wed­nes­day and host Mil­ford Mill on Fri­day.

Boys Soc­cer

Spar­rows Point de­feated 3-2 in the open­ing game of the 4th an­nual Adam Parr Me­mo­rial Tour­na­ment on Satur­day, but the cham­pi­onship game against Reser­voir was can­celled due to a storm that left too much stand­ing wa­ter on the field.

The two teams were de­clared co-cham­pi­ons.

Sam Bur­ton scored two goals against Ham­mond and Zach Lam­bert scored a goal.

Reser­voir de­feated City Col­lege in the other open­ing game, 1-1 and 4-3 in the penalty kick shootout. City de­feated Ham­mond 3-1 in the con­so­la­tion game.

Spar­rows Point hosted Franklin on Sept. 5 and the game ended in a 2-2 tie.

The Poin­t­ers next home game is Sept. 28 against Loch Raven.

Pat­ap­sco lost twice at the Bel Air Tour­na­ment the pre­vi­ous week­end, but won its opener against vis­it­ing Pikesville on Fri­day 3-2.

The Pa­tri­ots host Owings Mills on Fri­day.

Dun­dalk, which lost to Oak­land Mills on Satur­day 1-0, will host Here­ford on Fri­day.

Vol­ley­ball

Dun­dalk opened the sea­son by de­feat­ing Owings Mills on four sets. The Owls were to play at Pat­ap­sco on Tues­day and do not have a home match un­til Sept. 20 against Ken­wood.

Pat­ap­sco will host Ken­wood on Thurs­day.

Spar­rows Point opened the sea­son with a four-set win at Carver A&T and was to host Eastern Tech on Tues­day and Mil­ford Mill on Thurs­day.

The an­tic­i­pated show­down be­tween Spar­rows Point and Here­ford was sus­pended due to weather last week be­fore Julie Lynch and her Poin­ter team­mates could get re­venge for los­ing to the Bulls in the county ti­tle game last year.
