Shootout ends Andes boys' season

By John Bernhardt
In a basketball game, the entire Laurens defensive line would have fouled out. In a hockey game, the Andes team would have played a man up for most of the game. But, in a Section IV soccer game, unless a foul is committed deep in the penalty area, a foul results in only a stopped ball. In a low-scoring sport, defensive walls, goalie play, and good defensive marking can provide daunting obstacles for offensive teams. Laurens rolled the dice by playing a fouling game with Andes’ high-scoring striker Peter Fabrykiewicz in a first-round playoff contest at Legion Field in Delhi on Thursday. The gambit paid dividends as the Leopards edged the Mountaineers in an overtime shootout.
