POTSDAM, New York (WWNY) - There was a New York state boys’ high school soccer doubleheader at Potsdam High School Wednesday night.

The first game featured Madrid-Waddington against Lake Placid.

It’s scoreless into the first overtime. The Yellow Jackets’ Matt Robinson fires the shot that ricochets off the crossbar.

Colby Beldock sends a 10-yard shot onto the Bombers’ goal, but Lake Placid goalkeeper John Armstrong grabs the save.

Matt Reed keeps the pressure on, driving the ball toward the goal, but the shot sails just over the crossbar.

With 5:02 left in the second overtime, Robinson bends a blast just inside the right post to score the golden goal and secure the sudden-death victory.

On a direct kick, Luke Miller sends a lob into the crease. Cook with the flying header, tying the game 1-1.
