Paige Comegys scored with six minutes left in double overtime to give No. 8 Fallston a 2-1 victory over host North Harford in an Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference field hockey game yesterday.

In the second 10-minute, seven-on-seven overtime period, Ali Fogarty initiated the decisive play by beating two Hawks defenders and setting up her teammate.

"I pulled to my left and zig-zagged right through the circle," Fogarty said. "I put it through the goalie's legs right to the goal and Paige just finished it off for me. It's a big win, a big rivalry."

Neither team managed a goal until the final 5:30 of regulation. Fallston's Kathleen Tress scored first off a pass from Lindsey Puckett. The Hawks answered exactly four minutes later when Emily Gibson drove home a Katie Caprinolo feed.

The victory boosts the Cougars to 6-2 overall and 6-0 in the Chesapeake Division of the UCBAC. The Cougars have already avenged their only two losses in the conference last season, to Rising Sun and North East.

The Hawks, who drop to 3-4 overall and 1-2 in the conference, have lost three times this season in overtime. This is the second straight year they have lost to Fallston 2-1 in double overtime.
