For the second time this season, No. 7 Fallston needed double overtime to get past Harford County rival Bel Air. Yesterday, the Cougars edged Bel Air, 1-0, on Laura Williams' goal in the second sudden-death, seven-on-seven overtime period.

Williams scored on a two-on-one break, finishing off Stefanie Ogle's assist 4: 30 into the period.

The Harford County champs, who also slipped past the Bobcats in last year's first-round regional game on penalty strokes, will play host to South River at 3 p.m. this afternoon for the regional title. The defending state Class 3A champs and seven-time state champs, the Cougars (12-3) will be after their seventh straight regional crown.

No. 1 Bryn Mawr 3, No. 5 St. Mary's 0: Miles Whitman, Carey Fetting-Smith and Jen Ahn scored as the Mawrtians outshot the Saints, 21-8, and had 20 penalty corners in an Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland game in Annapolis. The Mawrtians (20-1) improved to 5-0 in the Applebee League while the Saints (9-3-4) dropped to 3-1-1.

No. 4 St. Paul's 1, John Carroll 0: Jill Haak scored on an assist from Jenny Landsman as the Gators (10-1-2) won an MIAA non-league game.

No. 6 Garrison Forest 0, Friends 0: Catie Corbin made one save for the Grizzlies (8-3-5) and Friends' Liz Yeager had two in an evenly-played IAAM game.

No. 12 Westminster 0, Dulaney 0: Westminster's Laura Yingling was the only one to score as Westminster (10-2-1) advanced on penalty strokes in a Class 4A North regional semifinal. Owls goalie Emily Chamelin stopped all five of Dulaney's attempts after the two teams played to a deadlock through two 10-minute seven-on-seven overtime periods. Before facing the penalty strokes, Erin Jordan made seven saves for the Lions (8-4-3). The Owls will play C. Milton Wright for the title.

C. Milton Wright 3, Parkville 0: Stacy McNamee, Crystal McCarty and Gina Elutrio scored unassisted goals to lead the host Mustangs (7-4-2) to victory in a Class 3A North region semifinal. Mary Trautner made 21 saves for the Knights.

Hereford 1, Joppatowne 0: Kim Dean deflected in a feed from Jodi Anderson early in the second half to lift the visiting Bulls (8-5-1) in a Class 2A North region semifinal. Dean's game-winner soared over the head of the Mariners' goalie, hit the crossbar and caromed into the goal. The Bulls, who shared the state Class 1A championship last year, will go after a fourth straight regional title when they travel to meet Towson at 3 p.m. this afternoon.

Towson 6, Aberdeen 0: Courtney Mershon had a goal and three assists to lead the visiting Generals (7-6-1) to a Class 2A North regional semifinal shutout.
