Hammond's girls soccer coach Peter DiMarco called his team's matchup with visiting Centennial its first major test, and his undefeated Golden Bears certainly responded.

After blowing a 2-0 first-half lead, the No. 15 Golden Bears (8-0) rebounded to register a 3-2 upset victory over the No. 8 Eagles on sophomore Jessica Basso's goal with three minutes left in the second overtime.

Basso was left alone from 5 yards out, and Lindsay Brandinger, who picked up a loose ball in the box, found her for the game-winner.

The goal erased a bad second half for Hammond, which surrendered two goals to Centennial's Samantha Test, including the tying one with 15 minutes remaining.

"They really took it to us in the second half," DiMarco said. "The first half was all us, and the second half was all them. We just decided in overtime that we were not going to let the game slip away."

The Golden Bears had complete control early, getting a goal from senior Colleen Tucci eight minutes into the game, and another right before halftime from leading scorer Melissa Workman.
