Senior goalie Heather Winkler made two outstanding saves on penalty strokes as No. 13 Fallston won the Class 3A East field hockey title at No. 2 Severna Park.

After Severna Park sophomore Lauren Maranto tied the game at 2 with three seconds left in regulation, neither team scored in two overtime periods. That meant the penalty stroke round, with each team getting five shots.

The Cougars (13-2-2), who last won a region title in their second straight state championship year in 1999, ended strings of four straight Class 4A state titles and 16 consecutive region titles by the Falcons (14-1-1). Fallston will meet Walter Johnson in Monday's 2:45 p.m. state semifinal game at Goucher College.
