CLEAR SPRING - Meagan Verdeyen is glad that soccer isn't scored on style points.
The North Hagerstown midfielder is rewarded on a kicks-for-goals basis, not on the whim of some Russian judge ... especially when it comes to a situation like overtime.
Verdeyen punched a score past Smithsburg goalie Lauren Church with 6:13 remaining in the second overtime Saturday to give the Hubs a 4-3 victory and the Washington County Tournament championship at the new Clear Spring stadium complex.
"I didn't care what it looked like," Verdeyen said. "It was just luck. We worked hard the whole second half."
And then some..
North (3-0-1) broke a 2-2 tie just 2 1/2 minutes into the second half. Verdeyen caught up to a lead pass at midfield, took three dribbles and unloaded from 30 yards, high into the net for a 3-2 lead. It was short-lived though, as Kyley Thompson scored two minutes later, scoring on the short side of the goal from 12 yards out.
