Nicolaus lifts the Cougars to victory with a Golden Goal with just 60 seconds to play


The Fallston High School girls soccer team was at home Thursday afternoon to host No. 14 Towson for what turned out to be a thrilling double-overtime contest, won, 3-2, by Fallston.

The Golden Goal came with just 60 seconds to play in the second overtime as sophomore Ava Lambros crossed a corner to senior midfielder Delaney Nicolaus, who got a head on the ball and sent it into the back of the net.

Earlier, Fallston (1-0) grabbed the upper-hand in the first half when Lambros took a shot from the right corner of the field that crossed in over top of the Towson goalkeeper’s head to give the Cougars a 1-0 lead. Early in the second half, Fallston found the back of the net again with a shot from senior forward Kennedy Mendoza, right before the 18, as it hit underneath the crossbar.

Towson (1-1) battled back to tie with two goals in the final 16 minutes of regulation. Junior Estelle Gerber netted both Generals goals and freshman midfielder Ella Litz assisted on both.
