One minute after seeing the balance of its two-goal second-half lead erased, Academy Park desperately needed an answer to halt Delco Christian’s momentum late Monday afternoon.
That’s when Bastian Pigeot stepped up, netting the game winner with seven minutes left in regulation to enable AP to edge DC, 3-2, in a taut nonleague boys soccer match.
Owen Ede had a goal and an assist, Samika Kromah scored and Lansana Doumbouya added a helper for Academy Park. Amadou Fofana started in goal for AP (6-6), making a half-dozen saves in the first half, and came on to relieve backup Ismael Americain by stopping two more shots to preserve the late lead.
Americain was chased after surrendering second-half scores by DC’s Daniel Nichols and Daniel Deger. Brody Veleber took the loss despite turning aside 11 shots.
In the Bicentennial League:
Christian Academy 2, Calvary Christian 2 >> Jalen Sherrill converted a feed from Grant Sareyka to put TCA up in the first half, the Crusaders benefited from a Calvary own goal in the second half and Andre Jones registered four saves for the visitors in the draw.
