HAMPDEN — Konnor Scarponi’s unassisted goal 10 minutes into the second half allowed the Brunswick High School boys soccer team to end in a 1-1 Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference tie with Hampden Academy on Friday.

The Dragons, the No. 2 team in the Eastern Maine Class A Heal Points Standings with a 6-2-2 record, are slated to visit Oxford Hills on Tuesday.

Hampden Academy is ranked No. 3 in Eastern A and stands at 5-0-4 after backto back ties with Lewiston (No. 1 East A) and Brunswick.

“There is no one out there that scares me right now, with four or five teams capable of winning it all,” said Brunswick coach Mark Roma. “It will take a little bit of luck for a team to come of Eastern A with the title. A bad break here or a bad break there could be all that it takes.”

The Broncos jumped out to a 1-0 lead early in the first half on a Tristan Gardner goal.

But, Scarponi evened things, and the teams played through two scoreless overtime periods.

Brunswick goaltender Greg Walton had six saves, while Hampden’s Zachary Gilpin turned aside seven shots.
