Patterson Mill and Bel Air battle for nearly 95 minutes at Harford Tech Wednesday night to decide a winner in their UCBAC Chesapeake Division game.
With 6:34 to play in a second overtime period, sophomore Izzie Toni put host Patterson Mill in the win column for a 1-0 win. The game was played at Tech as Patterson Mill awaits the completion of its new turf field.
“What we wanted to do, our whole game plan coming in, we didn’t do it. Wasn’t working,” Huskies coach Mike Parker said. “Changing it, that’s exactly what we wanted to do in overtime, send the ball through.”
Toni took a feed down the right sideline from fellow sophomore Ally Wysong and seconds later, became a hero.
“I collected it, turned, made a move around and looked at the corner and shot it,” Toni said. Toni’s shot found the net in the far corner, her fourth goal this season.
Toni's big shot was just one of a few for the Huskies (1-0, 1-3) all night. It was another Toni shot late in the first half that sailed high and teammate Riley Brown banged a shot off the cross bar from 35 yards out with 3:30 left in the opening half.
Bel Air (0-1-1, 0-3-1) had many opportunities throughout the 90-plus played minutes.
Amber Wambach had a direct kick just outside the box five minutes in, but saved with little issue by Huskies keeper MacKenzie Milstead.
The Bobcats first of five corners came midway through the first half, but it was strong and resulted in no shot.
Bel Air then had numerous decent chances in the second half, but nothing in the goal.
Junior Emma Yakim had two good looks :30 apart, but one was saved and the other glanced off the cross bar.
The Bobcats had three corners over the final 15 minutes, but no shot that found the net. With 3:45 to play, Wambach had another direct kick from 35 yards out and the shot sailed high.
In the first overtime, Cia Vlangas had a close shot with an angle and the ball rolled wide.
Then, three minutes before the Toni goal, Bel Air freshman Payton Todd took feed from Kaitlynn Davie. Todd had a clear open shot from the 18-yard box, but it skimmed the cross bar and went out of bounds.
"The biggest thing that we told them after this game was, it's okay to feel bad about the result, the scoreboard, but not to doubt the effort,” Bobcats coach Josh Ruggiero said. “This was probably the best effort we’ve given all year. We put it all together and how we played showed a lot.”
Katelyn Washko scored the only goal for Havre de Grace unassisted. Edgewood scoring was not provided.
Warriors goalie Jaida George made eight saves. The Rams led at half, 2-0.
