Down 4-0 in the first 10 minutes, the Pinkerton Academy boys soccer team found its grit, resolve and legs, fighting all the back to force overtime at 4-4, before falling to Manchester Central, 5-4. “This was one of the wildest games I have ever coached. I can’t say enough about this group of kids,” said coach Kerry Boles.
