#4 – Daniel Hand breaks through with a late overtime goal to win the Class L boys soccer championship

Daniel Hand boys soccer has been a perpetually strong team in the ranks of Connecticut high school soccer, but that had not translated into regular trips to CIAC finals or championships. A strong run to the Class L championship looked like it might change that story, but through regulation it looked like the story might linger on. Until a corner kick late in the first overtime period found the head of Liam Akers on the back post. That changed everything, and propelled the Tigers to the program’s first state title since 1997 with a 1-0 win.
