Notre Dame Prep and St. Mary’s waged a defensive battle in field hockey, Monday afternoon in Towson, and the host Blazers managed to escape with a 2-1 victory over the Saints.

Junior Meaghan Smith scored what proved to be the game winner for NDP, with an assist from Kelsey Gahan.  Earlier senior Erin Seipp put the Blazers on the board with an unassisted tally.

Kristen Lamon netted the only goal for St. Mary’s and she was assisted by Stephanie Lazo.
