NCHSAA Round One Men’s Soccer:
Smith 3, Southeast Guilford 2 in Sudden Death OT
[Golden Eagles refuse to lose/die.]
“This was the most heart pounding, speechless, exciting, overtime and Sudden Death period of my life.”
Kenneth Brown Jr. and probably every member of the Golden Eagles soccer team would probably concur/agree with Kenneth Brown Jr. and all is good tonight at Ben L. Smith High School…
In the first half, Juan Espitia, All Conference Player of the Year, with the first goal and then Southeast answered back quickly. At the half: 2-2
Then in the Second Half, Southeast first. Eagles got scared. Took a while for them to score again and when they did it was Juan Hernandez.
End of Regulation: 2-2
End of 1 OT: 2-2
End of 2 OT: 2-2.
Now, SUDDEN DEATH.
Amadou Toure: Game Winning Header. Crowd Goes Wild. Game over.
Eagles Advance to Second Round which will be played Saturday.
