Jackson sophomore Ryan Harvey scored with 3 minutes, 36 seconds left in the second overtime period Monday to lift the Indians to a 2-1 soccer win over the Mules in Poplar Bluff, Mo.

Harvey's goal came in the 97th minute came after each team scored in the second half on a penalty kick.

"We just couldn't finish," Jackson coach Zack Walton said. "We had a lot of good opportunities in there. [We] just couldn't put the ball in the back of the net."

Jackson (5-6-1) forced overtime with 4:06 left in regulation when senior Keagan Cavanah put in a penalty kick after the Indians drew a foul in front of the net.

Poplar Bluff scored first in the 54th minute on Luis Rivera's penalty kick.

"The boys didn't quit, they kept playing, kept battling," Walton said.

Austin Gammon set up the game winner just 33 seconds after Poplar Bluff lost Rivera to an injury and another player with their second yellow card of the game. The Indians quickly pushed the ball up the right side and Harvey's shot sailed inside the far post.

Ben Johnston recorded the win in goal.
