Adam Rafalski scored the game-winning touchdown in overtime to lead the Bel Air 7-9 football team to a 12-6 win over Middle River for the Harford/Baltimore Football League championship on Saturday, Nov. 17.
Middle River already had dealt Bel Air (9-2) its only losses during the regular season. "I just kept telling them that nobody could beat Bel Air three times in a row," said Coach Bryan Leone.
Nearly half of the youngsters on the team had moved up from the 6-8 team that won its league title last year. This marked the third year in a row that Bel Air has been the only Harford County team to win a league championship.
