Wilmington — Stratton Mountain boys soccer lost to Twin Valley 2-1 on Friday.

SMS dominated the game, but they could not tally goals despite numerous opportunities and ultimately lost 2-1 in overtime.

In the first half, SMS started fast, and two minutes into the game, sophomore Michael Caruso headed a cross toward the goal. Senior Elliot Deleger redirected the ball with another header over the Twin Valley keeper for a 1-0 lead. SMS spent most of the half in the Twin Valley end of the field, passing well but not getting many shots on the net. Twin Valley secured a corner kick during a counter-attack and created confusion in front of the SMS net, resulting in a score by Twin Valley to tie the game 1-1 with five minutes left.

After halftime, SMS passed well and created several good scoring opportunities. Pedro Holscher launched a rocket from 25 yards and hit the crossbar. Michael Caruso had a shot stifled on the 5-yard line by a diving Twin Valley defender, and Elliot Delege used his speed to break away on several occasions. Despite these chances, SMS did not score, and the game went into overtime.

Twin Valley hit a hard and low corner in overtime, deflecting two SMS players and snuck in the goal by the near post for the win.
