From staff reports
Bobby Cardelle had a hat trick, including a golden goal in the fourth overtime period, as Salisbury’s soccer team survived 4-3 against Surry Central in Saturday’s second-round 2A playoff game.
“Just a crazy, amazing game,” Salisbury soccer coach Matt Parrish said. “We were a lot bigger than them, but they were a lot faster than us. We’re a fast team, but they were one of the fastest we’ve ever seen.”
Salisbury trailed 1-0 just 50 seconds into the match.
Salisbury tied the game at 1-1 off a corner, with Philip Simons setting up Cardelle.
Clint Comadoll started the game, but he was dinged-up and laboring after Friday’s football effort, so Parrish pulled him and sat him for long minutes. He decided to reinsert him with the Hornets down 2-1 and getting desperate, and Comadoll scored the goal that leveled the match. Again, Simons assisted.
A remarkable goal put the Hornets up 3-2 in the first overtime. Emmy Turcios heel-flicked a pass to a speeding Cardelle, who produced his second goal. But Surry Central answered with the equalizer, and the second and third overtimes were scoreless.
Late in the fourth OT, the match appeared headed to a penalty-kick shootout, but SHS converted off another corner. With his back to the goal, Cardelle was able to settle a rocket off the foot of Luke Hutton, and he drilled his 38th goal into the side netting.
Salisbury (18-2-1) will play Trinity at home on Tuesday or Wednesday.
