Sep 20, 2019 at 5:54 PM
No. 9 Eastern Tech 2, No. 15 Hereford 1: Down 1-0 late, the host Mavericks scored two goals in less than two minutes with Arsalan Ahmad providing the game winner in the 75th minute.
After Nico Hillary gave the Bulls (5-1) a 1-0 lead early in the second half, the Mavericks (5-0) were able to find late resolve to pull out the win.
Dillon Nesteruk ran on to a through ball sent in by Matt Davis on the left side and finished to get the game tied in the 73rd minute. Shortly after, Ahmad collected a poor clear just outside the penalty area on the right side, took one touch to his left before hitting the game winner. Eastern Tech goalie Taylor Spivey’s fifth and final save was his biggest, diving to turn away a shot from Austin Craig with under two minutes to play.
“Going in, we talked about this being a defining week and one thing you have is a lot of heart and even with a lot of fatigue you keep working hard and it provided a couple unexpected opportnities late in the game where we broke through,” said Eastern Tech coach Peter Glaudemans.
Hereford, which upset then defending 2A state champion Eatern Tech in last year’s North region playoffs, outshot the Mavericks, 13-8 on Thursday.
