The
Howard Conference division leads changed hands last week as Long Reach
upset River Hill to take over first place in the A grouping and Wilde
Lake shut out Howard to take the top spot in the AA ahead of Glenelg,
which defeated Centennial, 8-4.

Long Reach remains the only undefeated team in the county.

A
large and boisterous crowd witnessed a thrilling, 5-4, come-from-behind
victory by Long Reach over traditional rival River Hill Jan. 11. The
star of the game was top-ranked Long Reach goalie Katharyn Dembowski,
who made 38 saves.

River
Hill's Jesse Freishtat started the scoring in the first period, but
Long Reach's stand-out junior, Nat Rojas, tied the game with an
unassisted goal minutes later. Long Reach took the lead as senior Jared
Bosley took a Rojas pass and manuevered to the high slot for a slap
shot that beat Hawk netminder Gilbert Xue.

Before
the end of the period, Anthony Meoli helped Seun Oyewole to a goal that
increased the Lightning lead to two goals. River Hill's Nick Ousborne
cut into the lead early in the next frame to give River Hill some
momentum, but ultimately, penalties undid the Ice Hawks.

Long
Reach converted two power play opportunities, registering goals by
Nathan Sesto and Curtis Sample. River Hill continued to press and near
the end of the second period, top scorer Jake Lynes hit the twine with
help from Jim Marlatt.

Taking
a two-goal lead into the third period, Long Reach went into a defensive
mode. River Hill had 18 shots in during the period, but only managed to
get one more goal (Lynes, assisted by Mike Brophy and Marlatt).

The
last three minutes saw numerous dangerous shots turned away by
Dembowski, who was mobbed by her team as the buzzer sounded. The
Lightning have now won three of the last five meetings between the two
teams."
