Thomas Stone 4,
On Thursday night, host Thomas Stone stunned Huntingtown in a boys soccer matchup, paced by senior forward Kyle Jumalon’s hat trick.
Stone (2-4-1, 2-4-1 SMAC) will host Patuxent at 6 tonight.
“It’s been a couple years since we’ve beaten Huntingtown,” Stone head coach Tom Parker said. “I told the boys that this was a good win for us on homecoming week versus a very tough team. Kyle has been scoring in bunches for us all year and he creates mismatches with his great ball control.”
Jumalon scored the team’s first goal to open the game on an assist from junior midfielder Austin Freed.
Later in a scramble in front of the net, Isaiah Crisp put a shot in the back of the net to give the Cougars a 2-0 lead with 20 minutes left in the first half.
Huntingtown (5-2, 5-2) tied the game up at 2 going into halftime after Devin Rediker and Marcus Reid scored key goals.
However Jumalon struck again, breaking through the defense with two more goals in the final 15 minutes of the game to help seal the victory.
It was the Hurricanes’ second-straight loss.
La Plata 2, Northern 1 (2 OT)
With 45 seconds left remaining in double overtime, senior Lilly Clark scored the game-winning goal on a breakaway to lift the Warriors to victory on Thursday evening.
The Warriors (5-1, 5-1) hosted Lackey on Tuesday evening, which finished too late for inclusion into this edition. They will travel to Leonardtown for a contest at 5:30 p.m. today.
“It was an intense and exciting game from the beginning to the end, neither team letting up for even a second,” La Plata head coach Pomie Radcliff said. “Our defense really stepped up the second half and Lilly was truly at her best.”
With 45 seconds left in the first half, Clark scored the team’s first goal to take the eventual 1-0 halftime lead. Northern’s Tara Truitt tied the game at 1 with 17 minutes left in the second half to force overtime.
