South River earned its first-ever trip to the Anne Arundel County boys soccer championship on an "own goal" with 12 seconds left in the first overtime for a 2-1 victory over Old Mill in Edgewater last night.

Lucky for the Seahawks (12-1-1 overall), who won the county regular season at 10-1 while Old Mill (9-4-1) finished 8-3, the eighth county championship game was already set up for 7:15 p.m. Tuesday at South River.

The Hawks' opponent will be Chesapeake. who were scheduled to play at Glen Burnie tonight, but late last night the Gophers forfeited due to a rules violation. As it turns out, it would not have mattered what Chesapeake did had they played since Arundel was upset, 2-1, by Broadnecklast night.- Pat O'Malley

GIRLS: The No. 6 Arundel girls soccer team earned a shot at a county championship, but it's unclear who will meet the Wildcats in the finale next Tuesday.

Arundel (12-2 overall), No. 4 Severna Park (11-2-1) and No. 10 South River (11-1) own identical county records at 10-1 after winning their respective games last night. The final tiebreaker is a coin flip, which will be determined by county coordinator of athletics Marlene Kelly. --Ed Lee
