Alejandro Hurtado's overtime goal in the 83rd minute propelled the Nooksack Valley boys' soccer team over Friday Harbor 3-2 on Saturday, March 30, at Friday Harbor in a non-league match.
"I set up my defense, and I put an extra person on top, and that is when Alejandro scored the goal," Nooksack Valley coach Valentin Villalobos said in a phone interview.
Luis Garcia and Luke VanWingerden scored the Pioneers' other two goals, and Favian Rodriguez picked up the win in goal.
"It was (Rodriguez') second game as a varsity starter, and for his second game, he did an amazing job at keeper," Villalobos said.
Nooksack (3-4, 1-2-0 NWC) next plays at Lynden on Thursday, April 9, in a Northwest Conference match.
