Roundup - Middletown works OT to beat Boonsboro


BOONSBORO - No. 2 Middletown had to work twice as hard - literally - to take the Monocacy Valley Athletic League title.

Sam Wilson scored four minutes into the first overtime as the Knights kept their perfect season alive with a 1-0 victory over Boonsboro's nine-player defense Tuesday night.

"Our goal was 0-0, and through regulation we got it," Boonsboro coach Karen Sornson said. "They played it great. The defense kept holding off the crosses and they got no headers."

Krista Hurley, Ashley Reeder and Ashley Gossert, the leading scorers for Boonsboro (3-5-1, 2-3-1), pulled back and joined Maggie Tierney, Krystal Kennedy, Katy Kretzer and Bethany Windle in the back.


Middletown (11-0, 8-0) took 32 shots, but Cara Peckens came up with 20 saves. Boonsboro's Joelle Keyser got a breakway midway through the first half, but the Knights stopped it.

"We went with a double stopper and Bethany Windle did a great job sweeping," Sornson said. "All our seniors were back there. I'm really proud of them."
