Overtime is just fine for DC-G boys

Dallas Center-Grimes overcame a three-goal deficit in the second half on Tuesday to beat Winterset in a 5-4 overtime triumph.

It was the Mustangs’ second overtime victory in as many days, following up a 3-2 victory at A-D-M on Monday.

DC-G trailed Winterset 3-0 just 21 minutes into the first half, and took a 4-1 deficit into halftime after a goal from Andrew Kramer. But Kullen Neyens scored in the 49th and 75th minute, and Nathan Fricke’s goal in the 78th minute knotted the game at four.

Fricke followed through with the game-winner in the 89th minute, lifting the Mustangs to their fifth victory in eight matches this season.

Fricke also scored the game-winning goal on Monday in A-D-M as DC-G escaped 3-2. The Mustangs scored twice in the first half. In the 20th minute, Kramer corralled a rebound in front of the open goal. Ten minutes later, Dowool Kim scored in similar fashion off a hard cross from the right side by Neyens.

A-D-M regrouped and tied the match in the second half. Jake Hutzell scored just 2 minutes into the second off a corner kick from Johnny Reel. Derek Gushiken’s goal sent the game to overtime, but Fricke’s game-winner ended the match in the 87th minute.

Dylan Michael made nine saves for DC-G, while Darold Baker made eight stops for DC-G.

A-D-M is set to host Newton on Thursday before traveling to a tournament in Pella on Saturday and a road game at Nevada on April 29. The Mustangs host Nevada on Saturday.
