Hilltopper Boys Varsity Soccer Team Nicks Dayton, 2-1 in Double OT

October 9, 2013 at 12:01 PM

SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit boys varsity soccer team opened play in the Union County Tournament with a 2-1 victory over Dayton of Springfield in double overtime.

In the match contested on the Upper Tatlock pitch, Summit controlled play for most of the first half but was unable to break through. The half's only goal went to Dayton after a restart that culminated in a long ball into the penalty area falling to the turf and subsequently finding the back of the net.  The second half saw the run of play continue in Summit’s favor and, in the 70th minute,  the Hilltoppers leveled the match.  A Dayton foul led to a free kick 35 yards from goal, which was contested by both teams. The ball fell Jack McCarthy who put it away, knotting the score and setting up a tense finish.

County tournament play in overtime stipulates two "golden goal" periods followed by a penalty shootout if the match is still tied.  Both squads competed hard in the extra sessions, battling both their opponents and growing fatigue.  With about six minutes left in the second overtime session and the prospect of a penalties looming, Summit won a corner kick, and Eric Reyes lofted struck a ball into the box that Daryl Martin headed toward the right corner of the goal where it found the foot of a Dayton defender and deflected in for an own goal and a dramatic Hilltopper victory.

The Hilltoppers are back in action today versus New Providence.  Match kickoff is scheduled for 4 p.m. at Upper Tatlock.
