2-A NCHSAA MEN'S SOCCER CHAMPIONSHIP
TURCIOS GOAL IN SUDDEN DEATH LIFTS SALISBURY PAST CARRBORO FOR 2-A TITLE
CARY -- Sophomore forward Emmy Turcios knocked in the winning goal in sudden death to lift Salisbury to a dramatic 3-2 victory over Carrboro in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 2-A men's soccer championship at WakeMed Soccer Park on Saturday.
Turcios, with two goals on the day, was the Most Valuable Player in the championship, the first NCHSAA soccer title by Salisbury, and offset an outstanding two-goal performance by Carrboro senior midfielder Sam Hickey, who has been red hot in the playoffs.
After a scoreless first half, Turcios broke the ice in the 46th minute to put the Hornets up 1-0. But Hickey tied it for Carrboro in the 58th minute and that is the way regulation ended.
Michael Brown found the back of the net for Salisbury on an assist from Hanson Saryee in the 86th minute, giving the Hornets a 2-1 lead. But just 10 minutes later Hickey had another equalizer, tallying on an assist from Vic Sullivan, to move the championship to golden goal.
In the 102nd minute of play, in the first sudden death stanza, Salisbury's Zac Sukkasem cut toward the middle with the ball, found Turcios down the left side, and the MVP buried it for the game winner.
Carrboro had the edge statistically, with the Jaguars recording 12 shots on goal to just five for Salisbury. The Jaguars also had nine corner kicks to none for the Hornets.
Salisbury goalkeeper Connor Miller was credited with 10 saves.
Salisbury finished the year with a 24-1-1 mark while the Jaguars, also in their first NCHSAA men's soccer final, suffered only their second loss to go with two ties and 24 wins.
The Raleigh Sports Consortium serves as a host city sponsor for these championships, along with the city of Raleigh and the Greater Raleigh Convention and Visitors’ Bureau.
