River Hill All-Metro forward Alex Hamer did her part, winning the right side before sending a perfect cross to the middle with less than three minutes left at Centennial. She knew exactly who would be there to handle the rest. It was junior midfielder Jessica Hopkins who made the perfect run before emphatically heading home the difference as the No. 2 Hawks were able to withstand a considerable challenge to claim a 2-1 come-from-behind win over the Eagles in Howard County. River Hill improved to 8-2 and 7-0 in league play, while the Eagles fell to 5-4-1 and 4-3. The game was played on even terms most of the way with the Eagles taking a 1-0 lead early in the second half before Hamer and Hopkins dominated the final minutes to rally the Hawks.

River Hill senior Sheridan Street was stumped by a question recently, so she looked to teammate Alex Hamer for help. That's nothing new. Hamer, a junior, has provided Street with plenty of assists on the soccer field during the past two-plus seasons they've played together for the Hawks. But they hesitated when asked just how many goals Street had scored on those assists. "I don't know if I even want to take a guess," said Hamer as she looked to her teammate. "We don't want to say too many," Street said with laugh.
