Kingston ties Mon­roe in marathon con­test

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS - Free­man staff

In a match that took five days to com­plete, Kingston and Mon­roe-Wood­bury highs’ boys soc­cer teams played to a 2-2 tie in an Orange County In­ter­scholas­tic Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion match fin­ished Mon­day. The first 38 min­utes of what even­tu­ally be­came a 100-minute con­test was played Thurs­day. Mark Fras­cello gave Mon­roe the lead, but Andy Lopez con­verted Lu­cas Lopez’s corner kick to tie. “Due to an in­jury, I was forced to take an ath­lete to the hos­pi­tal,” Kingston coach Dan Franklin ex­plained. As the Tigers had no as­sis­tant coach, the match was sus­pended two min­utes be­fore half­time. It was re­sumed Mon­day and Mon­roe soon re­gained the lead when Christ Valle scored on Josh Her­nan­dez’s chip. Kevin Fa­jardo forced over­time when he banged in a re­bound off Mon­roe goal­keeper Dy­lan McDer­mott’s ini­tial stop. There was no scor­ing dur­ing the two 10-minute OT pe­ri­ods. McDer­mott had seven saves and Josh McNutt made 15 to keep the match equal.

“It was the best game Josh McNutt has played for Kingston to date, with more epic saves than my heart could han­dle,” Franklin re­marked. Kingston is 6-7-2 on the year and 2-4-1 in the OCIAA’s Divi­sion I.
