In a back-and-forth filled soccer match, the West Craven Eagles edged the Havelock Rams 3-2, thanks to two goals from a chief import.

Swedish foreign-exchange student Johannes Lindgren-Ingman delivered one goal in the first half for the Eagles’ first lead of 1-0, then the game-winner with 3:53 on the clock.

“It was on a throw in and I saw the ball bounce off one of their guys’ back and I just kicked it in,” Lindgren-Ingman said.

The game was tied 1-1 at halftime, off Lindgren-Ingman’s first goal and a header from Havelock star Noah Kemble.

Havelock’s Spanish foreign-exchange student Miguel Diaz-Maurino headed the ball into the net early in the second half to give the Rams a 2-1 advantage.

Hunter Games answered with a goal at the 19:06 mark, setting up Lindgren-Ingman’s clincher.

“I think we just were able to keep our composure and not hit the panic button when they took the lead early in the second half,” West Craven coach Aaron Steele said.
