The Wildcats' duo combined for a well-choreographed goal in the 46th minute to deflate the Railroaders and propel Williamsport to a 2-0 victory in an MVAL Antietam Conference match. Gardenhour centered a perfect pass to the streaking Payne, who found the wide-open net to extend the Wildcats' 1-0 halftime lead and all but clinch the win.

BRUNSWICK, Md. - One way or another, Williamsport was going to get a last shot at the end zone. But Brunswick nearly gave the Wildcats a much better shot.
