Windham defends its Div. II boys' soccer crown
"We made it clear to our team that this wasn't a rematch from our end," said Windham head coach Michael Hachey. "We didn't want to pull old emotions into this game."
The Cavaliers, seeking the program's first state title since 2004, ended their campaign at 16-3.
Things changed in a hurry when Lippold was awarded a penalty kick after officials ruled a hand ball violation by a Hollis/Brookline player during a scramble for possession in front of the net.
"I didn't see any immediate reaction from the Windham players when it was called," said Carvalho. "But we didn't help ourselves over the way we handled their pressure leading up to that call."
Senior midfielder Baiguy made the most of an 18-yard direct kick, booting a dart past Pattelena top shelf.
Hollis/Brookline entered the second half determined and started applying pressure on Windham goalie Tim Erdlen. In the first 10 minutes, the Cavaliers created two solid scoring chances.
The second chance came minutes later when in a scramble, Erdlen jumped up and controlled a shot. As he fell down hard, the ball squirted loose and rolled into the cage behind him. But the ruling on the field was that Erdlen was hit by a Hollis/Brookline defender when the goalie had possession of the ball.
