PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — The monkey is finally off the back of longtime Central Aroostook boys soccer coach Wally Endy.
Appearing in his fifth regional soccer championship as coach of the Panthers, their third consecutive trip to the Class D north finals, Central Aroostook finally broke through Wednesday evening at the Johnson Sports Complex in Presque Isle.
No. 2 Central Aroostook (14-0-3) pulled off a thrilling 2-1 overtime win over top-ranked and previously unbeaten Penobscot Valley of Howland. Panthers junior Bryan Anthony converted a pass from senior Hayden Kingsbury with about 5 minutes remaining in overtime for the win.
