Cougars also advance

Fallston will play Friday night or Saturday afternoon at Bel Air High School in a state semifinal. The opponent will be either Southern-A.A. or Calvert.
In CMW's 3-0 win over visiting Bel Air (7-6-2) in Friday's regional semi-final contest, Megan Frailer showed the way with a pair of goals and Angela Kuhn netted a single goal. Katie Burgee dished out two assists as well.
Fallston advanced to Monday's final by edging Rising Sun, 1-0, on Friday in a game played at Elkton Middle School after it was confirmed that Rising Sun's field was not large enough for the game.
The Cougars fired 23 shots at the Tigers goal and had 12 corner kicks as the Tigers packed all 10 players back in the box, according to Cougars head coach Mark Hannahs.
Teams that are often outmanned or lack in speed to the opponent will pack it in, hoping to play for a tie and have the game decided in a shootout of penalty kicks.
Friday's game was headed that direction until Fallston's Ashley Mozingo worked a little magic on a corner kick. Mozingo drilled a bending right-footed shot toward the goal, clearing the goalie's hands and finding the inside of the net.
Cougars goalie Kayla Reilly had no saves in the win.
Havre de Grace (6-7) saw its best season in years come to a close Friday in Baltimore County. The Warriors were shut out in regional tourney play by host Sparrows Point, 2-0.
