TOPSHAM — Travis Nadeau’s goal midway through the second overtime lifted the Mt. Ararat High School boys soccer team to a big 1-0 Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference victory over Bangor on Saturday at Riverside Field.

The Eagles earned their seventh straight shutout to improve to 8-1 on the season, while the visiting Rams fell to 5-1-2.

“We hadn’t beaten Bangor in my first three years here, so this is a big win for us,” said Mt. Ararat coach Jack Rioux, whose Eagles visit Morse on Tuesday at 5 p.m.

Bangor set up for a throw-in, but a turnover allowed Nadeau to break out of his defensive zone. He beat a Rams defender before sending a shot past Bangor goaltender Austin Conway (five saves) with 3:48 left in the second extra frame.

Mt. Ararat goaltender James Singleton kept the Eagles alive in the first overtime. Bangor was awarded a penalty kick, but Singleton dove to his right to stop the low shot, with the Eagles clearing the ball out of danger. Singleton finished with three saves.
