JOHNSTOWN — Brady Goodemote scored with 4:12 remaining to lift Broadalbin-Perth to a 3-2 victory over Johnstown in a Foothills Council boys soccer contest at Johnstown High School on Wednesday.

“I’m happy with the win,” Broadalbin-Perth coach Billy Eipp said. “Every time we come to Johnstown, we know it’s going to be a battle and it was again tonight.”

Jared Eipp and Kyle Denman also scored for the Patriots, while Charlie Brown and Spencer Kotwasinski scored for Johnstown.

“We probably played some of the best, if not the best, soccer we’ve played to date,” Johnstown coach Tommy Horning said.

Jared Eipp struck first for B-P, scoring 28 minutes into the game to make it 1-0.

Early in the second half, Denman scored on an assist from Sam Rogers to make it 2-0.

Johnstown clawed its way back into the game, thanks to a pair of penalty kicks.

Brown converted the first with 34 minutes to play, while Kotwasinski converted the second to tie the game at 2-2 with 11:29 remaining.

“We definitely got lucky with the penalty kicks,” Horning said.

Kotwasinski’s penalty kick also saw Quinten Boehme earn his second yellow card of the night, resulting in a red card, meaning B-P would play a man down for the rest of the game.

“The game got a little chippy, which added to the emotions of the game,” Horning said.

Despite having just 10 players on the field, B-P pushed forward in an effort to regain the lead.

The Patriots’ efforts were rewarded when Goodemote scored on a Denman assist with just 4:12 to play.

From there, B-P was able to hang on to its advantage to earn the victory.

Jack Marsden made five saves for the Patriots, while Josh Hoyt finished with six saves for the Sir Bills.

“I think my team played quality soccer.” coach Eipp said. “This was a good win for us.”
