As running backs last fall, Adam Goloboski and Pat Butt earned first- and second-team All-Metro honors, respectively, in leading Hereford to its second straight Class 2A state football title.

The pair hooked up again yesterday, but this time it was on the lacrosse field.

Butt, a midfielder, assisted attackman Goloboski's game-winning goal 1:34 into overtime of the unranked Bulls' 8-7 upset of 14th-ranked and defending Harford County champion Fallston (1-2) in the Bulls' home and season opener.

Only a few seconds earlier, Goloboski whiffed on a nearly identical shot. But when given a second chance, Goloboski slung a shoulder-high volley from the right of keeper Jeff Bisker (12 saves) into the net's opposite side for his third goal of the game.

"I had aimed for the top corner on my first shot, but I missed. I was aiming for the top pipe, but I've had trouble with my shots lately," said Goloboski, who is bound for the University of Richmond on a football scholarship. "I'm just glad [Butt] had confidence in me."

Goloboski's effort, and that of junior Loyola transfer Joey San- flippo (three goals), overcame solid games from Bisker, Calvert Hall transfer Steve Bosse (three goals, two assists) and Adam Wade (three, one) of Fallston.

Sanflippo's extra-man goal with 3:50 left in regulation tied the game for the sixth and final time at 7-7.

"Our defense was phenomenal and really stepped up in the end," Sanflippo said. "This is our first game of the season and my first game here. We stepped up and worked things out."

Fallston had the ball for all but three of the last 75 seconds of regulation but couldn't solve Bulls keeper Quinn Curtis (eight saves) and defenders Tim Prudente, Scott Wilt and Greg Lehrl.

"Our heads weren't in it today. We came out a little cocky," said Brian Datsko, whose Fallston squad won last year's meeting. "We're going to work hard and try our best next game."

In a victory on Tuesday over Pikesville, Fallston scored 12 goals against All-America goalie Jesse Schwartzman. Yesterday, Bosse gave the Cougars leads of 1-0, 4-3 and 7-6 - the latter heading into the fourth quarter, when his team went scoreless.

"We just hung in there," said Lehrl, who also plays on the Hereford football team. "We're a family, just like in football. We're just playing with lacrosse sticks now."

Hereford's Brett Yoder had two assists, Perry Menzies and Kyle Henninger each scored once, and Travis Radebaugh and Ryan Ferrell had assists.
