Knights edge Eagles

in overtime, 10-9

ROANOKE – Cave Spring netted the match-winning goal less than a minute into overtime Thursday in a 10-9 boys junior varsity lacrosse triumph over Franklin County at Dwight Bogle Stadium.

The Knights led the match from wire-to-wire.

The Eagles tied the score at 8 and later at 9 in the fourth quarter of the 40-minute match.

In regular-season matches, a four-minute overtime period is play, but the stanza ends when the first goal is scored.

If there is no scoring, the match ends in a tie.

FCHS (2-3), coached by Chris McClure, returns to action Saturday against Cosby at C.I. (Cy) Dillon Stadium-Fred M. Brown Memorial Field.
