Prep boys soccer
Rangers 4, Rebels 4: The Forest Park's boys soccer team gave up two late goals by South Spencer to force overtime, then relied on penalty kicks to salvage the Ranger win. J.D. Kerber had a hat trick in the outing to fuel the Rangers. After the Rebels took an early 1-0 lead, Gryffin Flowers tied the game, then Kerber netted his three goals to give Forest Park a 4-2 halftime lead. But the Ranger defense sputtered in the second half, allowing the Rebels to score two goals in the final 10 minutes of regulation. Neither team was able to score in overtime, so penalty kicks decided the outcome. Forest Park made its first three shots, the South Spencer netted just one of its kicks to seal the verdict. Forest Park improved to 6-5-2.
