Raiders, Titans play to rainy draw as Cann scores four goals for QND
JACKSONVILLE, Ill. — Playing ina steady rain proved to be challenging.
Stopping either team’s attack turned out to be tougher.
The Quincy Notre Dame and Chatham Glenwood boys soccer teams — both coming off state title game appearances a year ago — played to a 4-4 draw Monday at Illinois College with the Titans erasing a two-goal deficit in the final five minutes of regulation.
QND senior forward Leo Cann scored four goals, giving the Raiders a 2-1 halftime edge and a 4-2 lead midway through the second half.
Cann scored his first goal in the game’s fourth minute, collecting a free kick from Brody Jones, spinning through the Glenwood defense and depositing his shot into the right side of the net. In the 15th minute, Jones knocked a ball long that Cann ran onto and flicked over the charging goalkeeper for a 2-0 lead.
The Titans’ Christian Ray scored on a 1-on-1 situation with Raiders goalkeeper Max Frericks with six minutes remaining in the first half to make it a 2-1 game.
About 10 minutes into the second half, Cann ripped a shot the Glenwood goalkeeper couldn’t stop to put QND up 3-1. Ray scored his second goal with 25 minutes to play, but Cann answered, hitting a left-footed shot into the far netting for a 4-2 edge with eight minutes to go.
However, the Titans answered. A foul in the penalty area awarded the Titans a penalty kick with 4:31 to play in regulation, and although Frericks guessed correctly and dove to his left, the PK by Glenwood’s Eben Reed went off Frericks’ glove and into the net.
Glenwood scored the tying goal with 90 seconds remaining as Miles Calderon converted a pass from Reed, hitting a one-touch into the left side of the net.
