Thornton Academy knocks off top-seeded South Portland, 1-0
The Trojans convert four straight penalty kicks to prevail in a Class A South quarterfinal.

...“Soccer is one of the most bizarre sports on the planet, and that’s why we love it,” said South Portland Coach Bryan Hoy. “You can get totally outplayed and win 1-0, or vice versa.

“It was unfortunate that we couldn’t get a goal, but Thornton played really well. Their defense stepped up and took away what we were trying to do. It’s unfortunate, but they outplayed us.”

South Portland had half a dozen decent scoring chances in the second half, none better than with nine minutes remaining when Anthony Perron intercepted a pass and fed striker Kyle Patterson, who set up Charlie Cronin for an open shot from 15 yards. It hooked wide of the left post.
