ELON — Josh Price’s goal in overtime lifted Western Alamance past Northern Guilford 2-1 in Mid-State 3-A Conference boys’ soccer Wednesday night.
Price delivered the eventual game-winner for the Warriors (10-2-1 overall, 3-0 league) after a feed from Jamie Nakhle three minutes into the first of two overtime periods.
Sam Stafford’s free kick from outside the 18-yard box went to Nakhle, who quickly moved a pass to Price, stationed about 8 yards from the goal.
Stafford scored early in the second half for the first goal of the night.
Shawn Marcham’s goal with less than two minutes left in regulation tied it at 1-1 for Northern Guilford (7-4-1, 1-1) and forced overtime.
