Goalie scores winner as Bohemians rally, secure first-ever playoff spot

Goalkeeper Zach Kane (Loyola University, Perry Hall) scored the game-winning goal in the 94th minute, and the Baltimore Bohemians secured the first Premier Development League playoff bid in program history, defeating the host Ocean City (N.J.) Nor'easters, 3-2, in a comeback victory Sunday. After being sent to the offensive end in a desperation move, Kane headed in a 40-yard free kick. Zach Kane Coach Steve Nichols also brought out the 6-foot-3 goalie in the 90th minute for a corner kick that was unsuccessful. Forward Pete Caringi (Calvert Hall, UMBC) scored for the Bohemians in the 78th and 88th minutes, bringing them back from a 2-0 deficit. Caringi finished the season with 16 goals in 14 matches, making him the leading goal scorer for the 2013 regular season in the PDL. His five assists helped him finish the season as the overall points leader as well. Baltimore will host Reading United in the playoffs Tuesday, with the game time and other details to be announced today.
