The Woodland boys soccer team wrapped up its final game with a victory over the Villa Rica Wildcats on Thursday after two overtimes, 2-1.

The match was physical from the first minutes of play. Woodland had a few opportunities in the first 15 minutes and several corners, but did not finish.

Seventeen minutes into the first half, a Villa Rica forward managed to score off a corner kick to give Villa Rica a 1-0 lead heading into halftime.

With just 28 minutes left in the second half, sophomore Ewan Anderson passed to senior Jose Panigua, who completed the pass to senior Francisco Coronado.

Coronado made a beautiful shot to the right-lower corner and put the Woodland Wildcats on the scoreboard and brought the game into overtime.

After one five minute overtime, the two teams were still 1-1.

One minute into the second five-minute overtime, Woodland sophomore keeper Kurt Moore made a save.

He then punted the ball well beyond the halfway mark, close to the Villa Rica 18. Three Villa Rica defenders along with junior Logan Molinaro fought hard to receive the ball. Molinaro came away victorious and ended up going one on one with the Villa Rica keeper. Molinaro sent the ball into the lower left corner of the goal to seal the victory.

Overall, Woodland had 15 shots on goal. Moore had 18 saves and one assist.
