C. Milton Wright scored five successive third-period goals, then held off fast-closing North Harford, 11-8, in a Harford County League game between teams headed for this week's regional playoffs.

The third-quarter assault, started and ended by Tim Parks, a sophomore midfielder, enabled the Mustangs (9-3) to open a 9-2 lead with three minutes left in the period.

Parks, who had five goals, scored to start the fourth quarter, but North Harford (8-4) battled back to 10-6. Keith Smith and Mike Murray, junior attackmen, accounted for the game's final goals in the last two minutes.

Sophomore attack Jeff Sedlak backed Parks with two goals. For North Harford, Murray had four goals and an assist, and Smith and sophomore midfielder Tom Stabb, two goals each. In goal, Jason Parks had 22 saves for Wright. Kevin Bandy had 11, and Ben Priebe, who came on midway of the third quarter, made seven, for North Harford.

Wright's twin scoring stars, Brian King and David Blades, were held without a goal, but each got teammates involved with three assists apiece.

"They have so many great players -- they just kept coming after us," said North Harford defender Jay Heil, who marked King.

Each team will be at home as a No. 2 seed Friday when the regionals begin -- Wright in 3A/4A-West and North Harford in 1A/2A-North.
