YARMOUTH — Adam LaBrie scored on a header in overtime to lift top-seeded Yarmouth to a 2-1 win over fourth-seeded Gray-New Gloucester in a Western Class B boys’ soccer semifinal Saturday.

Yarmouth (12-2-2), which beat Gray-New Gloucester 8-1 late in the regular season, advances to play No. 2 Greely in the regional final Wednesday.

“We thought we were a couple goals better than them, two or three maybe, but if you think about how the game went, we hit the post in the first half, we hit the post again on the penalty kick, and we missed two or three balls going across the (6-yard box). This probably could have, should have been a two or three to nothing win,” said Yarmouth Coach Mike Hagerty.

Just over four minutes into overtime, Henry Coolidge delivered a nice cross from the right side of the field over to LaBrie at the left post. LaBrie outjumped his defender and directed a header to the back of the net.

“That’s Adam’s 21st goal of the year. He’s been our leading scorer all year and he’s done a fabulous job finding the right seams,” said Hagerty. “He does a nice job off the ball, that’s his biggest growth from a year ago. He and Cooley made some eye contact, and when Adam drifts, we know where to put the ball. Henry put a beautiful ball backpost.”

“I just looked up and called for it, (Coolidge) played a perfect ball, and I had to put it in the back of the net. I wanted to make up for the missed PK I had earlier,” said LaBrie.

The missed penalty kick came with 27:34 left in regulation and Yarmouth ahead 1-0. LaBrie’s shot hit the right post.

“We’ve been practicing it. I’ve hit the post in practice every time, but it’s gone in. This time it went out. It was kind of unlucky,” said LaBrie.

Gray-New Gloucester (8-6-2) tied it with 8:14 remaining in regulation on a goal by Jesse Ricardi.

“We were able to run a set play that we put in last week that they ran well. We knocked it around and had a chance to put it on net, and they put it away,” said Gray-New Gloucester Coach Andy Higgins.

“(Higgins) ought to be coach of the year this year. What he’s done with that group, he’s made them competitive,” said Hagerty. “His kids are well-organized, they play disciplined. Their defensive alignment, they stuck to their game plan, and that’s coaching. Andy does a (heck) of a job with that group and he’s made that team better.

Yarmouth outshot the Patriots 24-2 and had a 14-1 edge in corner kicks.

The Clippers took an early lead just under eight minutes into the game when Patrick Grant scored on a rebound.

John-Henry Villanueva made 12 saves for Gray-New Gloucester.

“It’s a tough way for things to end. These guys did what they did all year, they fought and they battled,” said Higgins. “They took the best team in Western B and took them into overtime.”
