Central Baptist College’s men soccer team worked overtime Tuesday in earning its first berth in the American Midwest Conference championship game.
Theron Durham’s first career goal was an overtime winner as the Mustangs (9-10) defeated Missouri Baptist (8-11), 1-0, at Centennial Soccer Park to advance to the championship contest at Columbia, Mo.
Durham’s goal came in the 98th minute on a pass from Callum Morris and ended a defensive contest. Sam Collins stopped the only chances he faced on the evening as the Mustangs used suffocating defense to frustrate the Spartans’ offense.
