Late game flurry lifts Cuthbertson past Carrboro

Posted November 18, 2012

Senior forward Thomas Vigdor scored a pair of second-half goals to lead Waxhaw Cuthbertson to a convincing 4-1 decision over Carrboro in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 2-A men's soccer championship at Dail Soccer Field at North Carolina State University on Saturday night.

The Cavaliers broke a 1-1 tie with a three-goal barrage in about a 12-minute span late in the second half. Vigdor was named the Most Valuable Player of the championship.

His first goal came in the 65th minute after a great assist from Jason Drain to make it 2-1. Then Obi Collins, the Cavs' leading scorer on the year, tallied with an assist from Evan Martinez to make it 3-1.

Vigdor clinched it with his second goal, this one in the 77th minute, for the final margin.

Cuthbertson jumped on top quickly, scoring in the fifth minute when senior midfielder Michael Proctor found the back of the net for a 1-0 advantage. For a good portion of the first half after that, however, Carrboro dominated possession and kept the ball in the Cavalier end.

Carrboro finally got the equalizer in the 58th minute on a brilliant shot off the right wing outside the box by senior Alex Callaham to make it 1-1.

The Cavaliers, who have won the last four Rocky River Conference titles, earned their first NCHSAA state men's soccer championship and finished the season with a 23-3-2 mark. Carrboro was in the final for the second consecutive year, having lost to Salisbury in last year's championship. The Jaguars finished 18-7-3.

The Raleigh Sports Consortium serves as a host city sponsor for these championships, along with the city of Raleigh and the Greater Raleigh Convention and Visitors’ Bureau.
