HAMILTON - The Libby boys' soccer team stole the momentum with a late goal in the second half and then tallied two more in the second overtime to post a 3-1 State A playoff win over Hamilton on Saturday.
Loggers senior Cree Maloney found the back of the net on a header off a long pass from senior James Hare in the 77th minute to force a 1-1 tie.
After a scoreless first overtime, Libby senior Ricardo Macaes broke the tie in the first minute of the second extra session. Macaes got a good look on a pass from striker Crawford Dinning on a two-on-two that made it 2-1 Loggers.
"I think in the overtimes our defense had some fresher legs because after that first goal we didn't give up very many good looks," Libby third-year coach Charlie Webster said. "Hamilton played an outstanding match ... we were able to outlast them."
Talus Martin added another Loggers' goal in the ninth minute of the second overtime to seal the win.
Senior keeper David Brooks stopped 10 shots for Libby, which improved to 9-2-2.
Steffan Stewart scored in the 28th for the Broncs, who suffered their first loss of the season to finish 10-3.
Libby will host Livingston next weekend in a semifinal match. The Rangers defeated Whitefish 2-1 to advance.
