With 20 minutes to go in the semifinal of the Class 2A Sycamore girls soccer regional semifinal Tuesday, few in the stands were thinking overtime. No one but the most ardent Burlington Central fans was planning a Rockets' victory celebration. Hampshire led 3-0 and was seemingly able to run out the clock. But by the end of overtime, it was indeed the Rockets who were celebrating. Alyssa Messina scored the tying goal with 1:11 left in regulation, then scored the eventual game-winner halfway through the first overtime as the Rockets completed the improbable comeback for a 4-3 victory.
