9-11-14 vs Phillipsburg44

FHS Junior defensive midfielder Patrick August is mobbed by his teammates after he scored the game-winning goal in the Warriors’ 1-0 double overtime win against Phillipsburg.

The Franklin High School varsity boys soccer team grabbed its first victory of the season on Sept. 11 with a 1-0 double overtime victory over the visiting Phillipsburg squad.

The winning goal came with 7:15 left in the second OT period when junior defensive midfielder Patrick August battled through several defenders and found the net on a point-blank shot.

“I just had to move out and make some space for myself, and I just shot,” August said after the game. “We played hard, and it was a well-deserved win.”

Warriors coach Matthew Roberts called the game a “well-fought match from the boys. They worked hard and deserved the win.”

What looked like the game-winning goal by Phillipsburg in the first overtime was nullified because the ball was declared dead.

With the win, the Warriors are 1-2 for the young season.
