Tying goal waved off in Scots loss
Central Catholic survives a 20-minute barrage to beat David Douglas 1-0
6A BOYS SOCCER
Mount Hood Conference
PORTLAND The Central Catholic boys soccer team staved off a hard-charging finish from David Douglas to pick up a 1-0 win in Thursdays Mount Hood Conference opener.
The Rams picked up the games only goal late in the first half when Brennan Weber slipped a free kick off the gloves of the goalkeeper and into the right side of the net.
David Douglas kept the action in front of Centrals goal through the bulk of the final 20 minutes, earning three corner kicks in the late stages of play.
The Scots put the ball into the net as the clock ticked under five minutes when Edgar Resendiz connected on a free kick from near the sideline. The ball looped above a crowd at the mouth of the goal where Rams goalie Jacob Flaherty went to the air to bring it down. Instead, he crashed in the mix of bodies, and the ball bounced into the net.
The referee immediately waved off the goal and whistled a foul on the play.
