Fallston, Harford Tech, Patterson Mill, Aberdeen advance in boys soccer playoffs

Friday night boys soccer postseason action saw the Fallston, Harford Tech and Patterson Mill squads earn season-extending wins in the 2A East regional tournament, while Aberdeen came away with a double overtime victory in the 3A North bracket.

Fallston tops Edgewood

Playing on the road in their Friday matchup, the fifth-seeded Fallston Cougars conceded an early goal to the fourth-seeded Edgewood Rams, then scored 10 unanswered goals to take a 10-1 victory in the 2A East District VII tournament's opening round.

"Everyone played very well tonight," Fallston head coach Chris Hoover said. "Chris Grant and Tyler Andrus played especially well for us tonight out the midfield. We gave up that one goal about three minutes into the game, then were able to get on track and get some goals of our own."

Fallston will move on to play at top-seeded Patterson Mill in the district semifinal round, which was scheduled for Tuesday. Patterson Mill will host that game.

Tech blitzes Elkton

With the score tied, 0-0, in the second half of their 2A East District VII contest with third-seeded host Elkton, the sixth-seeded Harford Tech Cobras piled on four goals in the space of 12 minutes en route to a 4-0 victory.

Nathan Haskell started the scoring parade in the 50th minute with a goal that was assisted by Justin Morris.

Montrell Cade punched in a corner kick from teammate Greg Ransone four minutes later to put the Cobras up, 2-0.

In the 56th minute, Flavio Reyes gave the Cobras a 3-0 edge, scoring with an assist from Morris.

Jeremy Brown notched Harford Tech's final goal in the 62nd minute. Zach Metz was credited with the assist.

In goal for the Cobras, Adam Bednarek had four saves.

The Cobras were scheduled to play at second-seeded Rising Sun on Tuesday.

Eagles survive double OT thriller

The seventh-seeded Aberdeen Eagles came out of their 3A North opening-round matchup with a 2-1, double overtime victory over visiting 10th seed Parkville.

Aberdeen is scheduled to play at second-seeded Digital Harbor Tuesday.

Danny Geary and Flakron Salihu each netted one goal in the victory, while Aberdeen's assists were dished out by Andy Montgomery and Devin Murray.

Aberdeen goalie Thomas Moore made six saves.

Patterson Mill stomps Joppatowne

Top-seeded Patterson Mill Huskies beat visiting eighth seed Joppatowne, 10-0, Friday in the opening round of the 2A East District VII regional tournament.

Connor Neumann had three goals for the Huskies, while Patrick Kiley netted a pair of goals in the win. Colin Carroll, Phil McDonald, Joey Matassa, Chris Jones and Caleb Hebb each scored once for Patterson Mill.

Carroll, McDonald, Matassa, Will Pappas, Danny McKee and Pat Springer all handed out one assist.

The Huskies were scheduled to host Fallston Tuesday in the second round of the regional tournament.

Mustangs upset Bobcats in 3A North showdown

The C. Milton Wright Mustangs scored just one goal in their opening-round match of the 3A North boys soccer regional tournament Thursday, but that was all they needed to hand the host Bel Air Bobcats a 1-0 season-ending loss.

The fourth-seeded Bobcats and 13th-seeded Mustangs played to a scoreless standoff through the first half.

In the second half, C. Milton Wright's Manny Mastromanolis tucked a shot into the Bel Air net, and that would be all the visitors needed to keep their season alive.

Bel Air, this year's UCBAC Chesapeake Division champ, was just two days removed from winning the UCBAC title game with a 4-0 victory over Perryville.

The Mustangs advance to play a road game, scheduled for Tuesday, against Towson.
