Sophomore forward Kathleen Tress scored her second goal of the game in double overtime to give Fallston a 2-1 field hockey victory over visiting North Harford yesterday.

Tress shook a Hawks defender inside the circle and dodged right before scoring the game-winning goal 6:50 into the second extra period.

Her first goal was also unassisted and came at 11:47 of the first half to give the Cougars (5-2) a 1-0 halftime lead.

Hawks senior forward Megan Joines scored after the ball rebounded off a Cougars defender to tie the game with 13:56 remaining in regulation.

"We had a lot of possessions which we really didn't make the most of," said Cougars coach Alice Puckett. "There were a lot breakaways both directions and, the way the field is right now, it was just a really fast game."

"I'm very pleased," said Hawks coach Barb Waite. "They played their game, so if we're playing at the same level as Fallston; it could've gone either way."

This was the Cougars' opening game in the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference. The Hawks (3-3) fell to 0-2 in the Chesapeake Division.

"It was big game for us because it was our first conference game," said Puckett. "They were pretty fired up because they think they have a really good team this year, and they do. It just gives us a lot confidence."

Key 2, Lutheran 1: Meredith Kotelec's goal with 2:30 left in overtime produced the win. Kotelec also had an assist on a goal by Adrienne Hunt that tied the score in the second half. Jessica Bruton stopped eight shots but couldn't keep the host Saints from dropping to 4-2.
