Prep roundup: Burlington Central boys soccer wins at Harvard

Published: Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

HARVARD – Stefan Jochum and Alan Camarena scored in the final 13:34 Tuesday to key the Burlington Central boys soccer team’s 2-1 victory at Harvard.

BC (6-1, 3-0 Big Northern East) extended its winning streak to four.

“It was definitely a nail-biter at the end and a pretty hard-fought match,” Rockets coach Mike Gecan said. “Pretty exciting. Everybody was pretty pumped up.”

Central trailed for much of the match, falling behind, 1-0, when Harvard converted a first-half goal on a breakaway. Things picked up considerably down the stretch, however, as Jochum scored the equalizer shortly after a Matt O’Connor corner kick.

Just more than nine minutes later, Camarena darted inside with an AJ Gouriotis feed and shot for the near post, scoring the eventual winner with 4:12 to play.

Goalkeeper Brett Rau made eight saves for Central.

“Three of them were not good, but amazing saves,” Gecan said. “We call them super saves.”
