John Paul II boys soccer rallied from behind for an impressive road win Friday, defeating SCHSL Class 5A Irmo 4-2 in extra time.
After conceding a pair of goals in the first half, the Golden Warriors’ comeback was sparked by Jackson Ogden’s dazzling breakaway finish to get JPII on the board. John Paul II controlled the play throughout the second half and earned the equalizer on a late Anthony Hill goal to force extra time.
The Golden Warriors maintained their energy and put the game away with goals from Mark Knight and Austin Floyd in the overtime periods to steal the road victory.
Evan Slusne was fantastic in net, making six saves to notch the win.
John Paul II (2-0, 1-0) heads back into region play Tuesday in a road matchup with Hilton Head Christian Academy.
