In a close game that went down to the wire, Dylan Fox came up in the clutch.
He scored the winning goal in overtime as the Blue Springs South soccer team edged out the crosstown rival Blue Springs Wildcats 2-1 Wednesday
“Hard fought game tonight,” South coach Jon Grice said. “So proud of the boys for their effort. No quit in this team. We knew it would be tough, regardless of the last outcome. Blue Springs is well coached and works hard. They made it very difficult for us tonight. I'm really happy with how we instituted the game plan tonight.
“Our boys have been coachable all season and tonight they proved it.”
Jaguars goalkeeper T.J. Ferman saved four shots that nearly went into the goal, but finally allowed a Blue Springs (3-15, 0-8) goal in the second half that went under the crossbar to make it 1-1 with 7 minutes to play.
In the 67th minute Justin Borkowski found Bryce Millican for a goal to give the Jaguars (5-16, 2-7) their first goal of the game. Five minutes into the first overtime period, Nick Landon got free near the end line and served a cross to Fox who put in the game-winner.
“Dylan has been a workhorse for us all year,” Grice said. “He deserved that goal. He does anything we ask of him and does it well.”
