SOUTH CHINA — Gage Currie scored nine seconds into the first overtime to lift No. 7 Erskine to a 2-1 victory against No. 10 Hermon in an Eastern Maine Class B preliminary-round boys soccer game Saturday.

Erskine played the opening kick of overtime deep to Currie, then the ball bounced off a defender to teammate Joe York who fed Currie cutting toward the goal.

The Hawks scored the first goal midway through the second half on Hunter Clukey’s unassited score. Currie tied the game three minutes later when his free kick deflected off the goalie’s hands.

Erskine goalie Jared Gartley made four saves. Garrett Kippler had eight saves for Hermon.
