The Havre de Grace girls lacrosse team is alone atop the UCBAC Susquehanna Division standings after its 7-6 win over visiting Aberdeen Tuesday night at James R. Harris Stadium.

Two seniors, attack Julie Hagis and goalie Caraline Cypher, were at the forefront of the Warriors (3-0, 3-5) win over the Eagles (1-2, 1-5).

Hagis scored five goals and Cypher made key saves on some shots, while altering other shots in the game's final minute.

"I knew it was going to come down to like the last few shots, so I really made sure I was talking with my defense so we could get it out and when we got that card, I was really making sure where the open girl was," Cypher said. "So we could force bad shots and trying to capitalize. Just really trying to see the field and get my girls where they needed to be."

The Warriors were leading 7-6 when the referenced card came with 1:30 left in the game. Down a defender, the Havre de Grace defense stiffened and Cypher (17 saves) stayed strong.

The Warriors defense limited the Aberdeen chances for a shot and when they did, Cypher was there for the save, while two additional shots sailed high over the goal.

Aberdeen opened the scoring just 1:02 into the game. Julianna Coster scored her first of three. Just over a minute later, Havre de Grace's Shawnee Mahan evened the score with her first of two goals.

The game then turned into a defensive struggle, with no scoring for nearly 17 minutes.

Emma Cooke changed that, putting Aberdeen back ahead with her only goal, but Hagis had an answer.

Hagis scored twice on a pair of free position shots, a minute and ten seconds apart, giving the Warriors their first lead, 3-2.

Aberdeen, though, scored the next two in the final two and a half minutes of the half. Samantha Marlow's only goal with 2:25 left tied the game at 3 and Coster put the Eagles back on top with a goal at the :02 mark.

Aberdeen also opened the second half with back-to-back goals to slip ahead by three, 6-3.

Coster scored off an free position shot at the 22:21 mark and two minutes later, Cassie Price netted her lone goal.

Hagis then took over, scoring three of the Warriors four second half goals. Her coast-to-coast goal came with 16:37 to play. Mahan added her second goal two minutes later and just 17 seconds after that, Hagis scored again to tie the game at 6.

It was another long run down the field by Hagis that led to her game-winning goal with 6:15 remaining.

"We know that playing against Aberdeen is always going to be a tough game, no matter the score," Hagis said. "Usually, we just have to force the ball from midfield down to attack. We don't really have time to spin it around the arc. We usually just call a couple of plays, then when we see the open lane, we just go to goal."
