Ingrao boosts Bel Air in 2nd OT, 2-1 Field hockey

November 05, 1993|By Mark Hoeflich | Mark Hoeflich,Contributing Writer

Barbara Ingrao, who didn't score much for Bel Air during the regular season, got the game-winning goal at the four-minute mark of the second overtime to give the Bobcats a 2-1 victory over host Kenwood in the Class 3A East Regional final yesterday.

Bel Air (10-1-2) advances to Monday's state semifinals at Goucher College at 1 p.m.

"I missed the shot the first time on the drive, and the second time I

pushed the ball and the goalie blocked it and on the rebound someone hit it up and I just tapped it in. . . . It was luck," Ingrao said.

"If you put enough pressure on, hopefully, something will break and the kids have a lot of confidence," said Bobcats coach Phyllis Hemmes. "I don't have a very well-known team, and we don't have anyone outstanding, and today it happened to be Ingrao who stepped up."

Going into the game Hemmes said that how much her team could do depended on where Kenwood gave it an opening, yet Kenwood didn't give much at all on defense with Tina Edge, Lauren Daniels and Tracy Dobson breaking up several opportunities and senior goalie Colleen Bess making 19 saves.

Kenwood's Krissy Perrin opened the scoring at the 12-minute mark of the first half off an assist from Melissa Cover. Bel Air tied it in the second half when Jamie Kunkel fired a shot into the far corner from eight feet out.
