Ateam that did it with defense all year put the ball in the stick of its best offensive player when it needed one goal to win a title.
CJ LaBreck delivered like he has so many times before for Thornton Academy with his tally 42 seconds into overtime, bringing home the second consecutive Class A title with an 8-7 victory against Falmouth.
“He’s huge,” Thornton Academy coach Ryan Hersey said. “Some other kids get a lot of nerves when it gets to that part of the game. He wanted the ball the whole time.”
