WILLIAMSON — For more than 75 minutes, Sayre was in control, then an “unlucky” bounce triggered a Williamson rally, and eventually a 3-2 overtime win here Thursday afternoon in NTL boys soccer action.
Freshman Brayden Post and junior Cody VanBenthuysen scored first-half goals to give the Redskins a 2-0 lead at the intermission.
With 4:20 remaining in regulation, the Redskins were whistled for a “hand ball” in the box, and Caleb Morgan converted to trim the deficit to 2-1.
With 2:01 remaining, Sam Cummings scored to tie the game, and force overtime.
“We got up quick with two goals, and played tough until there were 5 minutes to go,” said Sayre coach Greg Hughey. “We had an unlucky handball in the box for a penalty kick, then a last-minute shot to take it into overtime.
“This was a total team effort and all the boys played their hearts out,” he noted.
“I really thought we had it tonight,” added Hughey. “We are playing good soccer, just need to finish games and stay focused for 80 minutes.”
Trent Achey scored in overtime to give the Warriors the win.
Williamson outshot Sayre 22-4, and had a 10-3 advantage in corner kicks.
