CAPE ELIZABETH – Jessica Broadhurst scored 5:35 into the second overtime to lift Scarborough to a 2-1 victory over Cape Elizabeth in a Western Class A girls’ soccer semifinal played Saturday at Hannaford Field.

The third-seeded Red Storm (13-1-2) now move on to the regional finals in their quest to defend their state championship. Scarborough will face top-seed Gorham in the regional final on Wednesday. The Rams beat Thornton Academy 3-0 in the other semifinal.

The second-seeded Capers finished the season at 12-2-2.

The dramatic winner came after numerous offensive chances created by the Red Storm against the defensive minded Capers. Meghan Tyson played the ball into the penalty area off a corner kick and Broadhurst was there for the decisive goal.

“That’s how we always usually score goals,” said Broadhurst. “I saw where the ball was going and I knew that there was nine minutes left and I gave it all I had.”

The majority of the play in regulation and overtime took place in the Cape Elizabeth end of the field with the home side waiting patiently for an offensive opportunity to strike.

Scarborough had at least four chances in the opening half to score first but on each occasion where fended away by the Capers. The best chance came 10 minutes in. Tyson shot from about 30 yards, and Cape keeper Ali Johnson tipped over the crossbar.

“We knew they were going to play defensively and we worked on it all week,” said Scarborough Coach Mike Farley. “But you can’t really replicate it because they do it so well. They are so organized that it’s really hard to break them down.”

The Capers scored on their first shot on goal. After nearly 60 minutes, Abby Houghton tapped the ball into an open net after a passing play that included Melanie Vangel and Kathryn Clark.
