Edgewood High School - Thursday's UCBAC field hockey title matchup between Fallston and Rising Sun turned out to be a tale of two halves. After a lackluster opening period, both teams exploded for a combined four goals in the second half, and when the final whistle sounded, it was the Chesapeake (upper) Division champion Cougars that came out on top of their Cecil County opponents with a 3-1 victory.
