If the latest installment of the Noland Road soccer rivalry was one of frustration for William Chrisman, it was one of jubilation for Truman.

Cam Wallace’s goal with just two seconds left in overtime lifted Truman to a 2-1 win Wednesday at Independence All-School Stadium and set off a wild celebration for the Patriots on the turf at Norman James Field.

“It feels good,” Wallace, a junior, said after burying his second goal of the night. His first goal in the 30th minute gave Truman a 1-0 lead. “I’ve scored every year against them and it just feels really good. The intensity of that game is so great I just want to score really, really bad.”

Wallace and his teammates were feeling really, really good after the win improved their record to 2-5.

“Our team has lost like the last five games and we really needed like that break to pull our spirits up and I think tonight is really going to help it,” Wallace said before describing his game-winner. “It was a free kick. Josh Felz hit a beautiful ball and Omar (Villa) got a nice flick right past the keeper. It was an open goal and just a simple tap in.”

William Chrisman had 16 shots on goal but only Jeremie Sagastume’s goal in the 59th minute found the net.

Sagastume’s tally tied the score at 1-1.

“That’s the problem we’ve had the last couple of games,” Bears head coach John Straub after his team remained winless on the season at 0-8. “We’re creating all sorts of opportunities, we just – it must be some magical Saran wrap on the goals.”

Freshman goalkeeper Alex Villa was outstanding in front of the net for the Patriots. Villa stopped 15 of 16 shots on goal.

“Truman’s keeper did an excellent job today,” Straub said. “He played a great game. He deserves a lot of credit.”

Truman head coach Jared Byrne said he was at a loss for words after the dramatic win. Although he’ll take the victory, Byrne wasn’t satisfied with the play of his team for the entire game.

“It’s good to kind of salvage the game,” Byrne said. “Chrisman outhustled us. They outworked us in every aspect. I feel really bad for their guys because  they deserve that I feel like a little bit more than we did.

“I think it showed a lot for us to come back and still get the win. We didn’t quit. But, we just kind of made too many mental mistakes. I don’t have a lot of words right now.”

Nor did Straub have much to say after the overtime thriller.

“I didn’t say a whole lot about today’s game,” Straub said. “We have another game (today) against Fort Osage and we just kind of talked about you wake up tomorrow morning and we have to forget about Wednesday’s game and be ready to play Fort Thursday.”
