Mount He­bron makes most of 1 play

Baltimore Sun - - VARSITY -

In a game against Oak­land Mills that, in the eyes of Mount He­bron coach Mike Lin­sen­meyer, was full of mis­takes, bad plays and a lack of dis­ci­pline, the dif­fer­ence was one smart, well-ex­e­cuted play.

Af­ter a foul 28 yards from goal, se­nior de­fender Matt Millen quickly placed the ball and, in­stead of wait­ing for a play called from the side­line or for a player to make a run, he sim­ply took a shot on goal as soon as he could. It bounced into the left side of the goal while Oak­land Mills keeper Daniel Miranda stood on the right post be­gin­ning to po­si­tion for a wall.

It was the only goal in a 1-0 home vic­tory for the No. 13 Vik­ings (2-1, 1-0 Howard County).

“We prac­tice set pieces a lot,” Millen said. “If we­seethe goalie is set­ting up­the wall, not pay­ing at­ten­tion, we just look to play quick and we cap­i­tal­ized on it.”

Mount He­bron missed nu­mer­ous op­por­tu­ni­ties through­out the game, es­pe­cially in the first half. The Vik­ings held a 9-3 shot ad­van­tage against Oak­landMills (2-1, 0-1) and con­trolled the pace and pos­ses­sion for the ma­jor­ity of the first 40 min­utes.

Af­ter the goal with 25min­utes, 44sec­onds re­main­ing, the Scor­pi­ons turn it up a notch. Taylor Nel­son had eight long throws in the fi­nal 20 min­utes, each of them dan­ger­ous into the box, but Mount He­bron keeper Justin Car­guilo was up the chal­lenge. He made sev­eral key stops in the fi­nal min­utes, in­clud­ing one on the line af­ter a bounc­ing ball in the box.

“I thought Car­guilo played great hav­ing to deal with those throws and madeaplay right on the line,” Lin­sen­meyer said.
