READFIELD – Dakota Duplissie scored 4:44 into the second overtime Thursday to give second-seeded Maranacook a 2-1 victory against seventh-ranked Fryeburg Academy in a Western Class B schoolboy soccer quarterfinal.

Second-seeded Maranacook (14-0-1) will be home against third-ranked Falmouth in a semifinal game at 6 p.m. Saturday.

Duplissie took a pass from Walker Thompson, turned and fired from 10 yards. The ball skipped off the hands of Fryeburg keeper Mike Creegan and into the upper left corner of the goal.

It was the second goal of the game and 30th of the season for Duplissie, and he scored it with two defenders on his back.

“We let him turn,” Fryeburg Coach Robert Hodgman-Burns said. “I told them, ‘don’t let him turn.’ “

Duplissie also scored early in the second half, culminating a flurry of three Maranacook shots.

“I was kind of camping out,” Duplissie said. “I was just staying at the 18 because usually the ball pops out to the 18. I jumped in and hit it on a volley.”

While Duplissie drew a constant mark and a double team whenever he touched the ball, so did Milos Mijokov of Fryeburg (8-7), a Serbian native and the team’s leading scorer.

Maranacook held him in check until the closing seconds of regulation. But with time running down, Maranacook keeper Sam Nielson came out of his goal to challenge a ball.

About halfway out, he realized his mistake, but by then it was too late. Mijokov chipped the ball into an empty net from near the right sideline. It came with 32 seconds left, but if there was any letdown for Maranacook, it wasn’t reflected in overtime.

“We didn’t fall apart,” Coach Don Beckwith said. “That was the focus of our practice the last couple of days — composure.”
