The Monsignor Donovan girls soccer team went to overtime for the first time this season and came away with a victory as Brielle Underwood redirected a corner kick just 50 seconds into overtime as the Griffins defeated Point Boro, 1-0, in a Class B South game on Thursday afternoon.
Point Boro kicked off to start the overtime and Monsignor Donovan then stole the ball in the midfield. The Griffins (3-1, 3-0) then sent the ball down the line and when a Monsignor Donovan forward tried to cross the ball, it hit off a Point Boro defender resulting in the corner kick.
Taylor Fellenz took the corner kick that resulted in the game-winning goal.
“Taylor kicked the ball from the right side of the field and kick it to the middle of the six-yard line that’s where Brielle was standing,” Monsignor Donovan coach Suzanne Oliver said. “Brielle then slotted the ball to the lower right for the goal.”
Monsignor Donovan goalie Rebecca Dodgson made five saves and Point Boro goalie Cameron Havens made five saves for the Panthers (1-2, 1-2).
