(MATT BUTTON AEGIS STAFF, Homestead Publishing / October 2, 2012)

In a thrilling double-overtime UCBAC Chesapeake Division game Monday afternoon in Pylesville, North Harford defeated Rising Sun 2-1.

Following a scoreless first half, North Harford opened the scoring just four minutes into the second half on a Tessa Mirjafary breakaway goal.

Rising Sun answered the goal some nine minutes later on a cleverly-executed short corner kick play. Brooke Thompson netted the goal with an assist from Halley Wisner.

The teams then battled through one overtime period scoreless, before the Hawks (2-0 league, 7-1 overall) tallied the game winner. Katie Clark did the honors, scoring off a well placed corner kick from senior Julia Schrof, who was playing in her first game of the season after recovering from a pre-season auto accident.
