Last Wednesday, the varsity boys soccer team played Riverbend at home, for senior night.

 

Scoring their first goal in the first four minutes, the Eagles were up 3-0 by halftime. Going into the second half with confidence, the game took a sudden turn when Riverbend redeemed themselves, scoring two goals. During the last couple minutes of the second half, the outcome looked like a 3-2 game.

 

However, Forge gave up a penalty kick in the 79th minute and let the Bears take advantage of the mistake, tying the game 3-3. Sending the game into a 10-minute half overtime, the score was left unchanged with equal scoring opportunities from each team, which lead to double overtime.

 

Just as the game was leading to a penalty kick shoot-out, Sam Amorose (’22) scored the game-winning goal in the 87th minute. Forge held Riverbend for the remaining 3 minutes, winning the game 4-3.
