Senior Myles Culley scored 1:56 into overtime to give the Waynflete Boys’ Soccer Team a 3-2 victory over Yarmouth on Tuesday in Portland.

Culley was held scoreless in regulation for the first time this season. In overtime, he produced enough space on a right-to-left dribbling motion to uncork a 30-yard shot with his powerful left foot for the winner.

It was Culley’s 35th goal of the season and clinched the first Class C South seed for Waynflete (12-1-1), the three-time defending state champions.

“What a way to end the season. It doesn’t get any better than that. It was one of my best times on the soccer field,” Culley said.

Two-time defending Class B champion Yarmouth fell to 10-2-2 and will finish third in B South, coach Mike Hagerty said.

Waynflete held a 2-1 halftime lead on goals from Liam Anderson (assist from Jacob Woodman) on a play set up by a straight kick from Culley, and Nils Burton-Johanson (assist from Dudley Holdridge ).

Yarmouth tied the game twice, thanks to goals from Zach Kelly in the first half and then from Adam McLaughlin with 3:50 left in regulation time. Yarmouth keeper Ian O’Connor kept it 2-1 early in the second half with a diving save on Culley’s best chance in regulation time.

O’Connor had little chance on Culley’s winner.

“Nobody had ruled it out for 80 minutes yet. We just didn’t have a game scheduled for 90,” Hagerty said.
