LAKELAND CHRISTIAN ACADEMY BOYS 4, CASTON 3
Some literal last-second heroics helped LCA earn a win Saturday afternoon.
Parker Stewart scored with two seconds left on the clock to walk LCA off as victors over visiting Caston.
Stewart took a pass from Jake Harman and made the final chance count, stunning a Caston side that held a 3-2 lead midway through the second half. Stewart also scored in the 61st minute, aided by Theran McKeever.
McKeever scored LCA’s first two goals in the sixth and 47th minutes. Aiden McQuade and Trenton Parker had McKeever’s helpers.
Brayden Breed notched a pair of goals for the Comets, and Noah Howdeshell converted a penalty to give the visitors the 3-2 advantage.
Remington Swanson and Peter Koller split time in net for the Cougars, combining for five saves. Noah Colvin made 11 stops for Caston.
“We fought through a lot of adversity today,” stated LCA head coach Dan Miller. “I was pleased with the way Aiden McQuade played in midfield, and I thought Theran McKeever finished his chances well. Parker scored with two seconds left in the game to give us the win. He was not 100 percent today, but despite that he showed a lot of courage in scoring the last two goals to give us the win. Credit Caston for playing hard and being difficult to break down defensively.”
LCA (6-2-1) will host Culver Tuesday.

EMBRY-RIDDLE WOMEN 1, GRACE 0
Grace’s women’s soccer team nearly pulled off an NAIA Top 25 upset on Saturday at No. 19 Embry-Riddle (Ariz.).
The Eagles (4-1) scored in overtime to win 1-0 and hand Grace its first loss of the season. Saturday’s match, played in Arizona, started at 10 p.m. Eastern time.

The teams were unable to find a scoring connection in the first half despite a combined 14 shots.
Both sides increased their attack after halftime in pursuit of a game winner. Grace took eight shots in the final 45 minutes but could not find the back of the net.
Joana Schimmel had a pair of shots saved in the last five minutes, and Kuhl and Jenni Phillips also had shots saved in the second half.
Bethany Blackwood was strong in goal for Grace to keep ERAU off the scoresheet in regulation, sending the game to overtime.
The match ended just minutes into the overtime session. The Eagles scored off a rebound in the penalty box for the golden goal winner.
Blackwood was credited with 16 saves in a sharp performance. Schimmel tallied three shots, all on goal, and Phillips, Kuhl and Kristen Bellinger each tried two shots.
