Senior Gabe Hirsch scored an unassisted goal five minutes into overtime on Thursday to lift Broadfording Christian Academy to a 4-3 victory over St. Maria Goretti.
"It was tough," Hirsch said. "We just kept pushing. We got a lot of corner kicks and long throw-ins into the box. A throw-in bounced off of one of their players. I got a lucky bounce in front of the goal and I put it in."
It was just what Broadfording coach David Grimm wanted to see.
"It is exciting to see Gabe as a senior push as hard as he does," Grimm said. "He has a desire to win in every game. Goretti fought hard and the game could have went either way."
It took Hirsch's second goal of the game to make sure Broadfording (4-0) remained undefeated.
Goretti (1-1) tied the score at 3-3 in the closing seconds of regulation when Mateo Pejla scored on an assist by Vince Turano to send the game into overtime.
