Sparrows Point’s boys soccer team took home the trophy at the school’s annual Adam Parr Memorial Tournament this weekend, but their winning streak was cut short by Dundalk High School on Tuesday.
The Pointers boys beat Parkside 1-0 on a first-half goal by Billy Clark at the Parr tournament on Saturday, after beating City College on Friday 3-2.
At the tournament, the Pointers’ girls team first made a “real good showing on Friday,” coach Jonathan Wynne said, winning against Catholic High School 11-0.
But the Sparrows Point girls ultimately lost to Century, who is now on a four-game winning streak, 2-1 at the tournament, after Century beat Parkside that morning.
“We had a couple really good chances early that might have given us a real boost,” Wynne said. He said the team is very young, consisting of many ninth and tenth graders, and is still “just kind of learning together.”
The tournament, which stated in 2015, is dedicated to Sparrows Point student and soccer player Adam Parr, who died in an automobile crash in 2003.
Parr’s family donated the concession stand and restrooms at the Sparrows Point stadium, First Mariner Field.
The Pointer girls later lost against St. Paul’s School for Girls on Monday evening, losing 5-0.
“We ran out of gas last night,” Wynne said, noting that three games in four days was “probably a little more” than the team could handle.
The Pointer boys lost to the Owls at Sparrows Point on Tuesday evening, in a game that ended 1-0.
Patapsco won’t face a local rival until both the girls and boys teams play Dundalk on Sept. 23. The Patriots’ boys’ team lost against Towson in a 9-0 opening game, and lost again to Western Tech, 7-3, on Monday. The girls’ opener against Towson on Monday was postponed.
Sparrows Point, Dundalk and Patapsco all won their respective games last weekend, with Patapsco and Dundalk both continuing their winning streaks and the Pointers coming back from an opening weekend loss.
The Pointers beat Western Tech in a non-region away game last Friday, winning 28-8 in their second game of the season.
Sparrows Point will take on Eastern Tech in an in-region, home game this Friday.
Patapsco beat Landsowne 21-0 in another away game on Friday, continuing their winning streak alongside Dundalk, which beat Parkville 37-6 in an away game on Saturday.
The Owls will take on the so-far undefeated Perry Hall Gators in a home game this Friday, and the Patriots will take on Pikesville in a home game on Saturday.
The Patapsco girls’ volleyball team has won both of their games this season, beating out Overlea 3-1 earlier this month and Lansdowne last Friday.
This Friday, the Patriots will face off against their local rival, the Owls’ girls volleyball team, who lost against New Town 3-2 on Monday.
The Pointers beat Parkville 3-0 on Monday, and will take on Western Tech on Friday.
