The boy’s nightcap saw Hidden Valley jump out to a 1-0 lead before the Knights executed a late comeback in dramatic fashion.

Cave Spring tied the game thirty minutes into the second half on freshman middie Paxton Daniel’s goal, then scored the winner with one minute left in regulation when senior Will Bradley headed a corner kick from senior forward Kyle Gunville into the net.

The boys win tightened things up in the River Ridge as Cave Spring improved to     3-2 (7-4 overall), while Hidden Valley fell to 3-1-1  (6-3-2 overall).
