With only seconds remaining in the second overtime of a soccer match tied nil-nil, the Windsor Dukes co-ed soccer team ceded a goal to the Park View Dragons.

Keeper Daniel McManaway made two outstanding saves in goal, but was unable to keep one last strike out of net in the 1-0 loss.

“They’ve been performing much better and they played this game dead even, but just need that extra push to win the game,” said assistant manager Alex Cole.

Windsor returned to the pitch two days later to take its frustration out on Greensville County. Senior striker Jacob Watson scored three goals to propel the Dukes past the Eagles, 6-0. Forward Jacob Littlefield and wingers Jordan Todd and Grand Morrill each added another goal to the tally.

In the midst of a four-match homestand, the Dukes played host to Franklin. Watson added three more goals, and McManaway recorded his second-consecutive shutout to lead the Dukes to a 3-0 win.

Most recently, the Dukes hosted Surry. Goals from Littlefield, Morrill and sophomore midfielder Austin Meier gave Windsor a 3-1 victory.

The three-consecutive wins push Windsor to 4-2 on the season, 4-1 within the TriRivers District. The team returns to action today at home against Southampton. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
