Saturday's roundup - Wildcats, Warriors win

September 06, 1998


BOONSBORO - Matt Bowman scored three second-half goals as Williamsport overcame a 2-0 deficit to beat North Hagerstown 4-2 on Saturday.

Brad Palm scored on a direct kick in the 76th minute to give Boonsboro a 4-3 win over South Hagerstown.

The games were scheduled as part of the Boonsboro Kick-Off Tournament, but a mixup involving officials caused the cancellation of the consolation and championship games.

Bowman scored in the 45th and 55th minutes to tie the game, and Matt Porac scored in the 57th minute to give the Wildcats (1-0) the lead. Bowman added his third goal in the 78th minute.


"I didn't think we had the firepower to come back and win," said Williamsport coach Stan Stouffer. "I thought we could get back in it and tie. This should be a tremendous boost of confidence to come back on North."

John Muto and Chris Michael scored for the Hubs (0-1). Mike Hudak assisted on both goals.

Palm scored the Warriors' first goal after Chris Mills had given South a 1-0 lead. Palm also assisted on one of Rob Pongratz's two goals. Austin Grey had an assist for Boonsboro (1-0).

Mills scored twice and Sharew Hailu added one goal for the Rebels (0-1). Sean Schrader and John Vaverchak each had an assist.
