Providence Day gets last-second goal to stop Gaston Day

Providence Day gets last-second goal to stop Gaston Day

The Providence Day-Gaston Day boys’ soccer match went to the final second -- make that the final 8/10 of a second -- before being decided Tuesday evening.

The visiting Chargers completed a comeback with a goal in the final second of the first overtime period, giving them a 2-1 victory over Gaston Day.

The host Spartans had taken a 1-0 first-half lead on a goal by David Efird.

Providence Day tied the game with less than five minutes left in regulation on a goal by Alex Cooke.

That set up the overtime dramatics. In the closing seconds, the Chargers attacked the Gaston Day goal, and John Morris Byrne delivered a pass to Kade White, who was on the left side of the goal. White’s shot went into the left side of the net with less than a second remaining.

The victory lifted Providence Day to 3-1 on the season.
