HAMPDEN – Rain covered much of Maine on Friday, canceling many high school games around the state, but not Hermon vs. Hampden girls soccer.
Hampden jumped out to an early 1-0 lead on a goal by Aurelia Maietta, and the Broncos took that lead into halftime before Hermon found some rhythm in the second.
Trailing 1-0 with just over 20 minutes to play, Michaela Saulter scored off a pass from Sydney Gallop to knot things up at 1-1.
Then just a couple minutes later, Natasha Cowan set up a foot-race between Gallop and Megan Deans, but it was Gallop who flicked it past keeper Logan Daigle to give Hermon the 2-1 win.
Hampden will host Brewer on Oct. 20, while Hermon will head to Saxl Park to face John Bapst on Oct. 21.
