Missouri’s smallest high school soccer classification produced a classic Kansas City-vs.-St. Louis showdown on Saturday in Fenton.
The Knights scored first in regulation on a goal from Demir Capan, but Principia tied it before the break. Cayden Williams scored after intermission to put Barstow ahead 2-1, but Principia equalized with 21 minutes remaining in the game.
And that’s where things stood entering overtime.
Eighty minutes of regulation plus a full overtime period wasn’t enough to decide a winner Saturday. Not even a second overtime, utilizing the “golden goal” format — wherein the first team to score would win — could finish it. The teams were still tied 2-2.
So nearly three hours after the game began, they went to penalty kicks.
Principia missed its second and fourth attempts. Barstow (11-7) made all four, with Quinn VanDyke hitting the winner.
When it was over, Barstow had beaten Principia via penalty kicks to be crowned state champion for 2018 at Worldwide Technology Soccer Park. Barstow last won the state title four years ago.
In the Class 2 championship game, John Burroughs beat St. Charles West 3-0. Pembroke Hill, which lost to St. Charles West in Friday’s semifinals, lost 3-0 to Monett in the game for third place Saturday.
