NHIAA Boys' Soccer: Bedford gets double-overtime winner
Minutes earlier, Heald had a chance to end the game on a penalty kick but Merrimack goalkeeper Mike Guest dove to his left to stop the shot.
The match was evenly played with neither team was able to generate much offense.
The best scoring chance during regulation came off the foot of Bedford junior forward Brett Squires, who rang a shot off the post at the 20-minute mark.
Merrimack’s best scoring chance came with about 19 minutes left in the second from James Oswald.
After taking a looping over-the-shoulder pass, Oswald broke in on net but Bedford defender Joshua Leary was able to harass him enough for his shot to miss the goal.
Briggs squared a pass to Brett Squires at the top of the 18-yard box that was deflected over the net with less than nine minutes to go.
“Both teams had their chances” said Farnsworth.
“It’s a relief” said Bedford (2-1) coach Stewart Pepper. “After the letdown of that penalty kick our guys found a way to finish.”
