Salmon River outlasted Gouverneur in overtime while Norwood-Norfolk fell to Clifton-Fine in NAC interdivisional varsity boys soccer matchups on Tuesday.

Salmon River 4, Gouverneur 3 (OT): In Fort Covington, the Shamrocks staged a pair of comebacks in claiming the dramatic win over the Wildcats, who opened the scoring and built a 3-2 lead midway through the second half.

Trevor Weaver scored the first goal in the 17th minute assisted by Jase Briggs but the Shamrocks countered with their first goal in the same minute with Shawn Avery finishing off a play set up by Josh Hynes.

The Shamrocks took their first lead of the game 23 minutes into the second half after Brady Mitchell converted on a penalty kick but the Wildcats countered with two quick goals as Curt LaPlante tied the game in the 28th minute from Briggs while Matt Waugh struck two minutes later from Weaver.

But the Shamrocks were able to regroup once again and sent the game into overtime when Avery connected from Zach Dunn with 20 seconds left in regulation.

Avery then completed his hattrick and lifted the Shamrocks to the win when he converted off an assist from Oakley Thomas seven minutes into the first 10-minute session of sudden-victory overtime.

Matt Healy made 11 saves working the crease for the win as the Shamrocks improved to 6-6-1 overall. Seth Carr posted 14 stops for the Wildcats (3-9-1).

The Shamrocks close out the regular season on Thursday at St. Lawrence Central.

C-F 2, N-N 1: In Star Lake, the host Eagles built a 2-0 halftime lead then held off the Flyers for the win.

Jacob Demmon broke through for the first goal of the game in the 26th minute off an assist from Nick Fraser. Brady Hayes made it 2-0 with less than three minutes left in the half assisted by Nate Aldrich.

The Flyers pulled to within one 26 minutes into the second when A.J. Doran connected from Ian St. Andrew but the Eagles would not allow the equalizer.

Matt Russell posted 10 saves for C-F (5-9) while Brock Simons fielded seven of the shots he faced for the Flyers.

N-N slipped to 3-13-1 overall with the loss and will host North Division rival Canton on Thursday at 4 p.m.
