Soccer: East and West take losses


ELIZABETHTOWN — After battling to a 2-2 knot in regulation, visiting Heidi Trask scored a goal in each of the ensuing overtime periods to steal a 4-2 Four County Conference win over East Bladen on Monday.

The loss drops the Eagles to 5-12 overall and 2-9 in the conference, while the Titans improve to 7-8-2, 4-6.

Heidi Trask got on the board quick with a goal in the first 60 seconds of the match, but East Bladen fought back and tied the game at 1-1 about 15 minutes later with some nifty head work. Grey Cabellero chipped the ball to Josue Guvera, who headed the ball to Alex Felder and Felder headed the ball into the net for the score.

The match remained knotted through intermission but, midway through the second half the Titans regained the lead with a goal. The Eagles, however, responded with a goal just a few minutes later when Greyson Heustess headed a pass to Caleb Hatchell, who booted the ball to the back of the net.

Regulation ended with the score still 2-2.

Heidi Trask managed to score just 3 minutes into the first overtime, then added another goal in the closing minute of the second overtime to earn the win.
