Baltimore Sun Media Group

The No. 4 C. Milton Wright boys soccer team nearly pulled off the upset of nationally ranked Salesianum, Del., on Wednesday in Fountain Green.

The Mustangs (9-2-2) battled back from a pair of two-goal deficits to force overtime, but the Sallies (10-1) converted off a corner kick in the final minute of a second overtime to win, 4-3.

The winning goal came with 1:04 left on the clock. Junior midfielder Ben Strine took the kick and as the ball approached the goal, senior forward Bryce Wallace got just enough of his head on it to flick it past Mustangs goalie Ryan Miller.

"On the last goal, I came out and my defender, guess he didn't hear me. I came out, tried to catch it and it just went off his head, went off my hand, wasn't expecting the deflection," Miller said.

No. 8 Eastern Tech 3, Patapsco 0: Drew Holt made five saves in his ninth shutout of the season to lead the Mavericks (13-1) past the Patriots (10-3) at CCBC-Dundalk.

No. 9 Loyola Blakefield 3, St. Paul's 0: Alex Reid scored twice to lead the host Dons (10-6-1, 7-6 Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference) past the Crusaders (2-11-2, 2-11-1).

No. 10 Mount Hebron 2, Wilde Lake 0: Two first-half goals by Trevor Namie and Vince Broccolino helped the host Vikings (9-2-2, 7-2-2 Howard County) shut out the Wildecats (4-5-2, 6-6-2).
