Bowie Blitz striker Doug Allman kicked in the tying goal with 90 seconds left in regulation and Bowie went on to outscore Three Brothers, 3-2, in a shootout to win its first Mid-Maryland Soccer Association Interdivisional Cup yesterday at Turner Field in New Carrolton.
Regulation had ended with the score tied, 1-1, and each team had scored on a penalty kick during overtime.
Charlie Walls, Bob Smedley and Lou Dorsaneo scored on consecutive kicks in the shootout. Mitch Dudley scored the only shootout goal for Three Brothers.
In regulation, Allman fielded a header downfield from midfielder Steve Davvitt and drove right before striking a clear shot to the center of the goal.
"I decided to get in there and gut it out," Allman said of his score. "We have the skill -- we just hadn't had the desire. We had the desire today."
Bowie finished the season 7-2-3.
Three Brothers, which placed second in the first division (5-5-2), got only one shot past goalie Greg Shockeley (10 saves). That came 8:40 into the second half when striker Tony Nweke drove downfield and passed to wing Joseph Soufain, who scored.
Bowie, which has lost in the finals twice, put seven shots on goal in the second half before scoring.
The Interdivisional Cup is a postseason tournament matching the winner of the second and third divisions and the top two teams in the first division.
