WORTON — Cam­bridgeSouth Dorch­ester’s Mor­gan Tracy scored in dou­ble over­time for the Vik­ings in a 3-2 vic­tory over Kent County Wed­nes­day, Sept. 27.

The vic­tory caps a week with two dou­ble over­time games — the first com­ing against peren­nial 2A power Eas­ton, which ended in a 1-1 tie. Wed­nes­day’s vic­tory im­proves the Vik­ings record to 5-1-1 overall, and 4-1-1 in the North Bay­side.

Mor­gan Tracy’s goal came in a fu­ri­ous ex­tra ses­sion with both teams hav­ing golden op­por­tu­ni­ties to end the game. But Mor­gan Tracy got the golden goal when she lifted s shot from the right wings over the hand of Tro­jan goal­keeper Alexis Lan­gen­felder.

“We were tired after hav- ing the dou­ble over­time game against Eas­ton, but the girls kept grind­ing out there, and got a win against a qual­ity Kent County team,” said Cam­bridge-SD head coach Ka­reem Otey. “We didn’t give up. We kept shoot­ing.”

The Vik­ings tailed 1-0 at half­time, but quickly tied the game in the 49th minute. Leila Robin­son cor­ralled a bounc­ing ball in the box, and found the back of the net for a 1-1 tie.

CSD con­tin­ued to pres­sure the Tro­jans. Brooke Wind­sor hit the post, and Abby Robin­son gath­ered the re­bound, but she shot was saved by Lan­gen­felder.

In the 53rd minute, Wind­sor feed Leila Robin­son nit her shot was saved. Mor­gan Tracy cor­ralled the loose ball, then guided a pass to Ri­ley Keener but her shot went off the post.

Two min­utes later, the Vik­ings took the lead 2-1 when Ha­ley Pi­etras lofted a long ball to Wind­sor who sped by the de­fense and scored.

The Tro­jans (1-5, 1-4) an­swered the CSD goal when Jamie Heavlow scored her sec­ond goal of the game for a 2-2 tie.

Four times in the final 10 min­utes of reg­u­la­tion Lan­gen­felder made clutch saves to keep the game tied. Twice she raced out of the net on Wind­sor, and got to the ball first.

In the first over time, Wind­sor had two good looks, the first on a break­away, but Lan­gen­felder made the save. The sec­ond chance came when Ha­ley Wright lofted a ball over the Tro­jan de­fense to a streak­ing Wind­sor, but again Lan­gen­felder made the save. Bay­ley Tracy gath­ered in one of the re­bounds, but her shot went high.
