After struggling to close out Academy Park in regulation Thursday, Andrew Nmah and Penn Wood did it about as fast as humanly possible.
Nmah took the opening tap of overtime from his brother, James, and struck a knuckling drive that beat the Academy Park defense for an instantaneous winner in a 3-2 Del Val Victory.
James Nmah also scored off a feed from Abdulia Barrie, and Tales Gaymore found the back of the net for Penn Wood (11-3, 8-0 Del Val), which guaranteed itself at least a share of the league title. Lansana Doumbouya set up Owen Ede for Academy Park’s opener with less than five minutes to play, and a deflected Bill Zwoduah shot also crossed the line for AP (8-9, 4-4).
