In post-season, girls soccer action, three squads managed to keep their seasons alive with regional tournament victories, while three Harford County teams saw the curtains come down on their 2009 campaign with defeats.

Friday’s IAAM semifinal contest between the John Carroll and Archbishop Spalding teams saw the visiting Patriots’ season end with a 2-1 overtime loss.

In the match’s second minute, John Carroll’s Alex Mezzanotte was taken down inside the Spalding box and the Patriots were awarded a penalty kick. Mel Lookingland stepped the the 12-yard hash and put the ball away for the Patriots’ only goal of the day.

Heading into halftime, the Patriots were still clinging to the 1-0 lead.

John Carroll was able to hold off their hosts’ offense for the majority of the second frame, but with just 10 seconds remaining in regulation time, the Spalding girls delivered a game-tying goal.

In the game’s second sudden-death overtime period, Spalding scored the game-winner with two minutes left on the clock.

Patriot goalie Gina Maiorana finished the match with eight saves.

Last Tuesday, the Patriots topped the visiting Institute of Notre Dame squad 4-1 in the IAAM quarterfinal round.

Colleen O’Connell scored in the first minute of play to put the Patriots up 1-0, and teammate Nicole Wojcik knocked in a header before half-time, giving the winners a 2-1 lead heading into the second frame.

Lookingland scored the Patriots’ third goal of the contest on a rocket to the upper corner of the Notre Dame goal, then scored her team’s final tally after taking a cross from teammate Kadie Hook.

Maiorana had one save for the match.

Cougars crush Elks

In the MPSSAA 2A east regional bracket’s opening round, the Fallston Cougars dropped host-team Elkton, 8-1, on Friday.

The victory earned the Cougars a shot against the Chesapeake (upper) Division North East Indians, the bracket’s top seed, on Tuesday afternoon in the regional quarterfinal.

Playing as the region’s fifth seed, the Cougars were led offensively by Kaylie Yapps and Lara Myers, who each tucked away a pair of goals. Fallston’s Katie Mitchell scored on a penalty kick and dished out a pair of assists, while teammate Katy Barry did likewise, scoring once and assisting two goals. Jayme Harmon and Abby Wilson both scored once for the Cougars, while Nikki Williams and Olivia Giachini each had one assist.

Audrey Baldwin and Alyssa Dugent both had one save in goal for the winning side.

The Cougars led the game, 3-0, at halftime.

Bobcats advance with shutout

The 2A east’s third-seeded Bel Air Bobcats knocked off the six-seeded Edgewood Rams on Friday in their regional tournament opener.

The Bobcats will now play the Rising Sun Tigers, the region’s second seed, on Tuesday in the regional quarterfinal game.

In their Friday match-up, which was held at Harford Tech High School, the Bobcats’ offense was led by Alex Kaputsos and Jenn Snyder, who each scored a pair of goals and handed out one assist. Teresa Berg helped the winning cause with one goal and one assist, while Lindsay Tumminello and Sam Williams both scored once in the victory. Malorie Moran posted one assist for the Bobcats.

Kaci Starkloff and Maddie Hanes split time in the Bobcats’ goal, picking up one save each.

Hawks prevail

The 3A north’s eight-seeded North Harford and ninth-seeded Aberdeen squads met on the Hawks’ home field on Friday night, and in the end the hosts prevailed, shutting out their guests in a 4-0 victory.

The win secured North Harford a road game on Tuesday against the region’s top-seeded Hereford Bulls.

The two teams went into halftime of Friday’s game tied 0-0.

Eight minutes into the second frame, Lori Anne Hill opened scoring, knocking in a goal with an assist from Laura Psaros. Later in the half, Psaros doubled the North Harford lead, scoring after taking a pass from Hill. Haley Jones scored the third Hawks’ goal with the help of Hill, while Kelli Gerding scored an unassisted goal.

North Harford goalie Haley Ford had five saves, while Jess Dietrick saved five shots in goal for the Eagles.

Warriors done

With a 4-0 loss to the visiting Perryville Panthers on Friday night in the Class 1A north’s opening round, the Havre de Grace Warriors ended their 2009 season.

Havre de Grace went into the halftime break trailing 1-0.
