H.S. soccer roundup: Old Lyme boys edge H-K in OT

Published September 18. 2013 4:00AM

Haddam - Alex Clippinger scored the game-winning goal in the 92nd minute to give the Old Lyme High School boys' soccer team a 4-3, double-overtime victory over Haddam-Killingworth in the Shoreline Conference.

Rowan Hallahan took the original shot for Old Lyme, but had it deflected by H-K goalie Elliot Lynskey, setting up Clippinger's goal.

Cooper St. Germain and Nate Peduzzi also scored for Old Lyme (2-0-1) and goalie Spencer Saunders scored the game-tying goal on a penalty kick in the 77th minute.

Old Lyme coach Marc Venditti said both goalies "played out of their minds," with Old Lyme connecting for 25 shots and H-K for 18.

"There was lots of stuff flying and they were tremendous," Venditti said.
