Sophomore Anderson Marroquin, a Hammond High graduate and 2017 Howard County boys soccer Player of the Year, scored on a fast break in the second overtime period on Wednesday to lift Howard Community College men’s soccer to a 4-3 victory over CCBC Catonsville.
It marks the first win of the season for the Dragons, who improve to 1-0 in Md Juco conference action after opening the year with a pair of non-conference losses.
Bradley Muma headed in a corner kick with two minutes left in regulation to tie the game and force overtime. Marroquin then converted the game winner after a scoreless initial overtime period.
