(Sept. 28, 2012) The Worcester Prep-Salisbury Christian boys’ soccer game was tied 1-1 at the end of regulation, and in overtime, the Jaguars scored three goals to win on their home field.
“It was a really tough, hard game,” said Prep Coach Terry Underkoffler.
The visiting Mallards got on the board first, when senior Seth Conboy dribbled by two Salisbury Christian players and scored at the 28-minute mark in the first half.
About 11 minutes into the second half, the Jaguars netted a goal to tie the score at 1-all.
“Both teams had good chances in the game,” Underkoffler said. “There was good goalkeeping on both sides. [Prep senior] Zander Farr and [Salisbury’s] Aaron Brumbley both had key saves.”
The Jaguars scored twice in the first 10-minute overtime period and tacked on another goal in the second to win 4-1.
“Even though the score was 4-1, it was a pretty even game. It was a very good game,” Underkoffler said. “We had several chances, but their goalkeeper came up with some big saves.”
Worcester will compete in several games in the next few days. The Mallards will travel to Centreville today, Friday, to play Gunston Day. The team will head to Georgetown, Del., to battle Delmarva Christian on Monday, and the following day, Salisbury School will come to Berlin.
