It’s not often that a soccer match rolls into sudden death overtime, but on March 8 that was the scene in Landrum as the Cardinals hosted Brashier Middle College. The top Landrum strikers had gotten the Cardinals passed the first round of penalty kicks. It was up to a different group now. At midfield, one of those strikers stood ready.
After a Will Brown score and a subsequent Brashier Middle College score, Mick Prather strolled up to the ball and sent a shot passed the goalie into the right corner of the net. That would be the game winner as the Cardinals rushed the field in celebration.
“It was just great to win it for us,” Prather said.
On the other side of the ball, the pressure was on Cardinal goalie Graham McClellan.
