​MONTVILLE, NJ - The Montville boys soccer team suffered a loss on Monday, falling 3-2 in overtime at home to division rival Mendham. The Mustangs overcame an early 2-0 deficit to send the match into overtime, but a golden goal with 6:10 remaining in the second overtime period from James Worth gave the Minutemen the win.

​The Mustangs had some wind taken out of their sails just over ten minutes into the game as freshman Alex Brynczka suffered a shin injury that kept him out for the rest of the match. Mendham would get the early advantage at the 22:31 mark of the first half as Hans Gallagher scored from close range to give his team a 1-0 lead. The Minutemen stormed right back down the field just four minutes later and scored again, this time from Calvin Ryan. With a lot of time still left in the match, Montville mounted a furious comeback. With just under 10 minutes left in the first half, Hendrik Meyer put one past Ryan Carkhuff to make it a one-goal game going into the locker room.

​Meyer would come up in the clutch once again for the Mustangs just under four minutes into the second half, scoring the equalizer to knot it up at 2. Both teams had great offensive chances for the remainder of regulation time, but neither side could break through. Both Carkhuff and Evan Orris each made crucial saves to keep the game tied and force overtime.

​Both teams continued their offensive aggressiveness in overtime, but neither side could score the golden goal. Montville seemed to have the momentum after the first ten minutes of overtime, but Mendham had the one opportunity in the second overtime that sealed their fate. After a misplay on a cross from Ryan, James Worth was in the right place at the right time and finished in front of the net to end the game.

​The Mustangs will look to get back in the win column on Wednesday, Sept. 20 when they host Roxbury. Kickoff is set for 4 p.m.
