Trout Lake ended up getting the better of the Sunnyside Christian High School boys soccer team last Tuesday, winning in the second five-minute overtime period, 3-2.
Trout Lake scored first in the 28th minute of play on a Mikael Dick goal. That was the lone score in the first half of the Greater Columbia B League match. (The GCB, for boys soccer, comprises teams from Trout Lake, Sunnyside Christian, Moses Lake Christian Academy and Yakima's Riverside Christian High School.)
The Knights responded after the intermission, in the 50th minute of play. Steven Broersma found Steven Bosma close to the goal and Bosma was able to put the ball in the left-hand corner for the score.
Twelve minutes later Bosma assisted Nathan Groenewald with a score. Groenewald unloaded a shot that deflected off a Trout Lake defender before careening into the net.
With the Knights holding a slim 2-1 lead, Trout Lake's Luke Dearden got the equalizer in the 66th minute of play, which eventually sent the game into overtime.
The first five-minute overtime period was scorless. Dick scored his second goal in the second minute of the second overtime to give Trout Lake its first victory under first-year coach Steve Allaway.
TLG goalkeeper Jacob Wells had a key role in the result with 13 saves versus 15 shots against. Sunnyside Christian's keepers combined for 16 saves out of 19 shots against.
