Thursday’s roundup: Country Day soccer comeback hands Latin its first loss

It would take a special effort to hand Charlotte Latin its first boys’ soccer loss.

That’s exactly what Charlotte Country Day did Thursday evening.

The Buccaneers rallied from a 4-2 deficit with three goals in the final 15 minutes for a 5-4 victory.

The winning goal came in the final minute of regulation.

Charlotte Latin (14-1, 7-1 CISAA) jumped to a 3-0 halftime lead, with Julian Evans scoring in the eighth minute, Daniel Derraik adding a goal seven minutes later, and Ben McCarter scoring just three minutes before halftime.

Tyler Swinehart’s goal in the 52nd minute cut the Hawks’ lead to 3-1, and Johnny Bingham made it 3-2 with a goal in the 62nd minute.

The Hawks went back in front 4-2 in the 65th minute, on Derraik’s second goal of the game.

Swinehart scored goals in the 77th and 78th minutes, tying the score. Phillip Scheurer scored in the final minute for the victory.

Charlotte Country Day improved to 10-6, 5-3.
