FROSTBURG — Owen Martz unassisted goal with 9:52 to play lifted Williamsport to a 2-1 victory over top-ranked Mountain Ridge Thursday night at Miners Stadium.
It was the Miners (6-1-2) first loss of the season.
“It was a hard-fought game between class 2A rivals,” said head coach Tim Nightengale. “It’s a great series between two schools.
“They have talented players with good balls skills and a lot of speed. We just came up short on being able to finish at the goal. But the kids gave great effort.”
Hart Weaver gave Williamsport a 1-0 lead off of an assist from Corey Woodhams at the 21:04 mark.
Mountain Ridge tied it 3:31 before halftime on Tyler Sisler’s penalty kick.
The Miners outshot Williamsport, 13-10 and led in cornker kicks, 4-3.
Goalie Jake Hafer made four saves while Williamsport’s Corey Ellis stopped 10.
Mountain Ridge won the junior varsity game 4-0 on goals by Luke Miller, Hayden DeHaven, Caleb Ryan and Patrick Kenny. Andrew Shimko and Allan Green each had assists.
Mountain Ridge hosts Hampshire on Wednesday.
No. 2 Allegany 1
CUMBERLAND — Nate Condor’s fifth shutout of the season led No. 2 Allegany to a win against a scrappy Northern team Thursday evening at Greenway Avenue Stadium.
Condor made five saves in a defensive battle, and his counterpart Alex Durst tallied six saves as the two teams combined for 13 total shots.
Thyago Silva scored an unassisted goal with 21:00 left in the second half to account for the entire offensive output.
“Both teams played very well on defense,” said Allegany coach Shawn Baker. “Neither team spent much time in the offensive third of the field. We just happened to be able to take advantage of one of our few chances.”
Allegany (8-1, 4-1 AMAC) plays at home against Hampshire at 7 p.m. on Thursday. Northern (4-2-1, 3-1-1 AMAC) visits Southern on Monday.
No. 3 Fort Hill 3
St. Maria Goretti 0
CUMBERLAND — Dalton Gaus got the first shutout of his career by making five saves during a shutout of St. Maria Goretti for the third-ranked Fort Hill Sentinels.
Daniel Hott got the scoring started when Shaolin Murray assisted him with 24:14 to go in the first half. Austin Heavner stretched the lead to 2-0 on a penalty kick in the second half, and Tyler Michael added an unassisted goal with 6:59 remaining.
The Fort Hill defense held the Gaels to six total shots with Gaus saving five. Goretti’s Drew Katrina had 15 saves as Fort Hill (5-2) took 25 shots.
“It was a good performance for us, and an all-around solid day on all aspects of defense. It’s a good win going into the tournament this weekend.”
Northern and North Carroll are traveling to Greenway on Saturday for the Sentinels Classic.
