LAKELAND — Lakeland Christian was less than two minutes away from clinching a semifinal win to reach the final of the Class 3A, District 10 boys soccer tournament when Windermere Prep scored the tying goal.
After two scoreless overtime periods, Ethan Green scored the clinching penalty kick that lifted the Vikings to the 3-2 victory on Tuesday night at Vikings Stadium.
Lakeland Christian (9-5-2) will play top-seeded Lake Placid in the championship game at 7 p.m. on Friday.
’We’re scrapping every game,” LCS coach Grandy Streets said. “We haven’t had that one guy who scores a lot of goals for us. We’re just not lethal like that, but we try to find a way. I have bunch of people who score goals.”
The teams went eight players deep into the penalty kicks to decide the match. The first four players, Knox Gibson, Bo Copen, Hunter Patterson and Alan Gordon, scored for the Vikings.
The first Windermere Prep player missed, but the next four scored against Lakeland Christian’s Eli Hill, who played defender during the game but was put into goal for the shootout.
