Three single goals help the Hawks avoid an upset

Because it has two ties as part of its unbeaten record, River Hill came into Tuesday’s Howard County boys soccer match with Glenelg needing a win to stay near the top of the Howard County standings.

The sixth-ranked Hawks got a big challenge from the Gladiators, who have yet to win the season, but single goals from three different players, as well as a pair of assists from Cory Northrup, helped River Hill (8-0-2 overall, 4-0-2 Howard Co.) escape with a 3-2 win.

Justin Harris, Andrew Donkor and Alex Smedley scored for River Hill.
