WESTFIELD – Better late than never.
The Westfield High School boys’ soccer team scored three goals in the final 3 minutes, 32 seconds of regulation to complete a stunning comeback against visiting Agawam 3-2 Monday.
The Bombers tallied three goals in a 52-second span.
“It was a fantastic game to be a part of,” Westfield coach Andrew Joseph said. “I’m very proud of the kids for not giving up. A two-goal deficit is pretty big in soccer, especially with 3:30 left.”
Dante White scored the first goal on a penalty kick with 3:32 remaining on the second-half clock. Twenty-six seconds later, Matt Butera scored the game-tying goal on a pass from Dmitry Doroshenko. With 2:35 left, Butera drove home the game-winner. Doroshenka assisted again.
“To their credit, they really dug deep and didn’t give up,” coach Joseph said. “It was amazing.”
Agawam scored goals in the 14th and 28th minutes.
