Under-12 -- The Greater Harford Rockets won their third straight indoor soccer game at the Maryland Sports Arena with a 3-2 comeback victory over the Harford Kicks.

Although the Kicks opened the scoring quickly with a goal around the four-minute mark, Rockets center forward Chris Martin scored soon after off an assist from Giovanni Julian.

The Rockets went ahead less than 10 minutes later on a goal by Ben Healey to go up, 2-1, to end the half. Healey scored another unassisted goal later in the second half. The Kicks scored on a penalty kick with less than one minute left in regulation.

Rocket goalkeeper Peter Howard had 10 saves and was aided by defenders Brian Kocher, Jason Wells, Robbie Johnson and Geoffrey Barrick. Brian Lloyd, Patrick Hinder, John Hryncewich and Ryan Ungaretti provided solid offense for the Rockets.

Under-14 -- The Genstar Booters defeated Forest Hill, 2-1, in outdoor action. Pat Dempsey and Ronnie Metzger each scored for the Booters, with an assist by Ryan Byrd.

In earlier action, the Booters defeated the Hickory Rebels, 3-2. Goals for the Booters were made by Eddie Griffin (two) and Liz Pyzik. Jarod Dennis and Byrd were in goal for the Booters.

Under-16 -- The Lazers S.C. remained hot in the Baltimore Beltway league, defeating Mickey's Booters, 2-1. A strong defense was the key for the Lazers, who got their first goal from John Gostowski. The second score was made by Alan Batac. Defenders Garson Beers, Jason Hartsfield and Brian Kelly aided goalie Alex Balbir.


The 13-14 Harford Sox opened their season with a doubleheader against the Carroll County Rangers (White) and another game against the Rangers (Blue). The Sox powered their way to three victories.

The first game was a 10-inning game in which the Sox rallied from a three-run deficit in the fifth inning to tie the game, and five innings later Paul Isbell's bases-loaded hit drove in Danny Green for a 4-3 win.

Isbell pitched six strong innings in relief to earn the win. Adam Rafalski went 3-for-3, Eric Shank 3-for-5 with one RBI and Josh Mawhinney 2-for-4 with two RBIs.

In game two, Mawhinney pitched a one-hitter, giving up one run and striking out 11 for the 4-1 win.

On Sunday, the Sox traveled to North Carroll High to take on the Carroll County Rangers Blue and won the game, 10-7. Chad Blevins got the win, Mawhinney the save.

Blevins went 4-for-5 with two RBIs and five runs scored. Mawhinney was 3-for-4 with four RBIs, and Matt Blethen went 2-for-5 with one RBI. Catcher Rafalski gunned down three base stealers to thwart potential Ranger rallies.
