Senior Myles Culley scored 1:56 into overtime to give the Waynflete boys’ soccer team a 3-2 win against Yarmouth on Tuesday in Portland.

Culley was held scoreless in regulation time for the first time this season. In overtime, he produced enough space on a dribble move from right-to-left to uncork a 30-yard shot with his powerful left foot for the winner.

It was Culley’s 35th goal of the season and clinched the top seed in Class C South for Waynflete (12-1-1), the three-time defending state champions.

“What a way to finish the season. It doesn’t get better than that. That was one of my best moments on the soccer field,” Culley said.

Two-time defending Class B champion Yarmouth fell to 10-2-2 and will finish third in B South, said Coach Mike Hagerty.

Waynflete held a 2-1 lead at halftime on goals by Liam Anderson (Jacob Woodman assist) on a play set up by a direct kick from Culley, and Nils Burton-Johanson (Dudley Holdridge assist).


Yarmouth twice tied the game, on goals by Zach Kelly in the first half and then Adam McLaughlin with 3:50 remaining in regulation. Yarmouth keeper Ian O’Connor kept the game at 2-1 early in the second half with a diving save on Culley’s best chance in regulation.

O’Connor had little chance on Culley’s game-winner.

“No one had shut him out for 80 minutes yet. We just didn’t game-plan for 90,” Hagerty said.
