Catonsville boys win in OT, 1-0
Palmisano’s goal gives No. 12 Comets soccer the win over Sparrows Point
Luke Palmisano scored 13:27 into overtime to lift host No. 12 Catonsville (9-2-1) to a 1-0 victory over Sparrows Point (7-3) in boys soccer on Monday.
The winning play started with a free kick from Liam Llorin from 60 yards out.
Matt Rehder headed it toward the goal and Ethan Clark flicked it to Palmisano.
“We missed a couple of good opportunities earlier in the game, so I called [Clark] off because I knew I had a better angle on it,” Palmisano said.
“We just needed one solid shot on frame and that’s what we got, and Luke buries that one,” Catonsville coach Chris Hastings said.
The Comets had a chance to win 4:50 into overtime, but Llorin’s penalty kick went wide.
Sparrows Point goalie Quentin Hager made14 saves.
“They had a good goalie,” Hastings said. “We just needed something hard and on goal.” That’s when Palmisano delivered. NO. 9 GILMAN 2, LOYOLA BLAKEFIELD 1: Teddy Ndje scored on a penalty kick nine minutes into the second half and Greg Diette added the winner with nine minutes left to lead the Greyhounds (7-3-3, 5-3-2) over the host Dons (4-8) in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference game.
NO. 6 SEVERNA PARK 5, OLD MILL 0: Phil Irwin scored two goals as the visiting Falcons (10-1) bounced back from their lone loss of the season to beat the Patriots (3-8).
DUNDALK 1, NO. 10 EASTERN TECH 0: Clement Blamo scored with five minutes left to give the host Owls (7-3) a victory over the Mavericks (7-2).
Hamza Iguidre had an assist and Josh Dickey made eight saves for Dundalk.
MOUNT HEBRON 3, MARRIOTTS RIDGE 1: Alexa Dragisics and Julz Lamparella scored in the second half to lift the visiting Vikings (6-5, 4-4 Howard County) over the Mavericks (2-6-3, 2-4-2).
“We went into halftime 1-0 and [Mount Hebron coach Tim Deppen] just repeated we need to continue to get the ball up there and get offensive chances and just try and put it in the back of the net — and we did that,” Lamparella said.
Katie Thompson scored with 18 minutes left for Marriotts Ridge.
