Last year, the Tow­son boys soc­cer team lost on penalty kicks to host C. Mil­ton Wright in the play­offs.

This year, the No. 10 Gen­er­als (13-2-2) re­turned the fa­vor.

Bryce Van­ick scored the game-win­ning penalty kick, and goalie Austin Wenck made six saves in reg­u­la­tion and two dur­ing over­time as host Tow­son played the No. 13 Mus­tangs (10-6-1) to a 0-0 tie in dou­ble over­time be­fore win­ning, 5-4, on penalty kicks in a Class 3A North Sec­tion II fi­nal Fri­day.

Gen­er­als coach Randy Dase, who had prostate can­cer but is now can­cer-free, has been back coach­ing for the past two weeks. He was thank­ful for in­terim coach John Becker, a 2009 Tow­son High grad­u­ate, who led the team in his ab­sence.

“[Becker] de­serves all the credit,” Dase said. “I just didn’t want to mess with the mojo.”

Dase de­scribed the game as tough and evenly matched.

“We had one re­ally good shot [dur­ing reg­u­la­tion] that their goalie saved,” Dase said. “Our goalie made two great saves.”
