Kilker’s goal wins it for Springfield

It was the kind of goal that usually winds up on a highlight reel and probably will. It also helped Springfield to a 3-2 Central League boys soccer victory over Marple Newtown in double overtime Tuesday.

Nick Jannelli took a long throw-in and headed a perfect pass to Josh Kilker, who ripped a bullet from roughly 15 yards out for the winner in the 96th minute.

Marple Newtown’s Dominic Pezotti scored late in the second half to send the game into overtime.
