Midfielder Keith Smith scored with five minutes left in the first half, and North Harford's defense made it stand up, as the Hawks knocked off Fallston (8-1-1), the area's co-No. 1 team, 1-0, yesterday.
In the process, North Harford (9-0-1) ended Fallston's run of 29-0-4 against Harford County teams, a record that started in 1990.
Kevin Piccolo, a 4-foot-11 sophomore, crossed the ball from deep in the right corner and Smith kicked it through goalkeeper Eric McPhee into the near corner.
Fallston outshot the Hawks, 20-7.
