Class 4A jumpstarted the day as Severna Park hauled in their 21st state crown by virtue of their win over a talented Wootton team, 4-1. Class 1A followed with a nail-biter as North Carroll fought off Patterson Mill to win 3-2 in the first overtime period. This was North Carroll's second title ever but their first since 1977. The Class 2A match-up pitted Hereford against newcomer Century, but Century never trailed in bringing home their first championship trophy by a score of 2-0. The final game of the day was the hard fought Class 3A title game where C.Milton Wright hoisted the champs trophy for the first time by edging Mt. Hebron, 3-2. In addition, Dulaney HS was voted as the recipient of the Tournament Sportsmanship Award. Don't forget that you can relive every exciting tournament moment with unlimited free viewing and purchase DVD's within days of the original contests on the MPSSAA Network.
