Thursday's Best: Hanover completes late comeback
The Hanover boys' soccer team recovered from a two-goal deficit to come back and defeat Delone Catholic, 5-4 in double overtime.
The Nighthawks (4-4, 3-3 YAIAA Division III) were trailing for most of the game and were in danger of falling behind the Squires (2-4, 2-4) in the divisional standings. After Hanover mounted a rapid comeback late in the second half, Diego Aguilar found the back of the net on a penalty kick to tie the game at four goals apiece.
Aguilar wasn't done, either, as he would later score the game-winning goal in double overtime to secure a hat trick and more importantly, a victory for Hanover.
Clarke can't be stopped: Fairfield's Nora Clarke scored four goals for the second time in as many games on the way to a 13-0 victory over York Catholic. The Green Knights (9-0, 6-0 YAIAA Division III) padded their lead in the division and remain one of just two undefeated teams remaining in the league.
Staub ensures victory: After winning its first three matches of the season, Littlestown came into Thursday riding a three-match losing streak. Hosting Hanover, the Thunderbolts (4-3, 3-2 YAIAA Division III) were able to take the fifth set, 15-7, as junior Emily Staub filled the stat sheet with five kills, 17 digs, 27 assists and five aces.
Forjan, Irish roll into championship week: York Catholic's Andrew Forjan shot a 72 to lead his team to a perfect season. The Fighting Irish won all six of their regular season matches and look to face off against Central York and Dover in next week's YAIAA team championship match.
