With the start of the soccer season, experts’ preseason predictions are usually thrown out the window with the multitude of upsets that occur. Most of the time, a team that has a number of talented juniors and seniors get recognized in the preseason rankings. So when a team “flies under the radar” and posts a win against a team that they weren’t suppose to win, it has all the makings of a very interesting season ahead. The Crusaders would find themselves down by a goal on their home field at the end of the first break, rallied to tie and then score the winning goal in the extra period when Kyle Miller scored his second goal of the game.
Tavis Higgins scored the lone goal of the first half for Moorestown and the Quakers looked to be on their way to picking up the win. With the momentum still on their side through the beginning of the second half, the Quakers quickly watched this game swing in the Crusaders’ favor. Miller’s first goal of the game to knot the game at one apiece when it counted and it was enough to send this game into overtime. That momentum carried into the extra period was Bishop Eustace’s team effort gave them the victory.
