After a long stretch of warmer days, Chester County Junior High Soccer got out and played against Henderson County in some extremely, chilly weather on Thursday, April 1.
The Eagles struggled the first half and gave up two goals to their opponents.
In the last 10 minutes in the first half, the Eagles managed to pick up their game some, which opened up some opportunities to take shots, but they could not score.
In the second half, Chester County got hot. With the score 2-0, the boys got on the field and gave it their all with an all or nothing mentality.
With 18:30 left in the second half, Number 10, Silas McManus, put up a great corner kick for a score.
Then, it seemed the Eagles were going to tie with a header by Number 8 Tanner Melugin, but he missed contact with the ball by inches.
Nonetheless, he still got the tie for his team during a penalty kick.
Though time was still left after the score with the chance for either team to still score a goal, it expired putting the game into overtime.
With 27.5 second left in overtime, McManus once again put up a great ball, this time it was for an assist that Number 18, Ryan Trammell, headed past the goalkeeper for the win.
It was an exciting game for this young group of Chester County players.

Tanner Melugin scores a goal off of a penalty kick on Thursday night to tie up the game in the second half.
