MILWAUKEE — After a wild finish in regulation, the Lansdowne Bhoys outlasted Bavarian SC in penalty kicks, 9-8, to capture the Fritz Marth U.S. Adult Soccer Association National Amateur Cup Saturday night.
The teams played to a 2-2 draw in regulation and then went through 30 scoreless minutes of extratime.
Momodou Sawaneh converted the winning penalty kick in the shootout.
It was fitting Lansdowne captured the Fritz Marth Cup because Marth was an important official with the Cosmopolitan Soccer League for many years. Lansdowne is one of the leading CSL First Division sides.
“Gonna enjoy this win tonight,” Lansdowne coach Austin Friel said on Twitter. “Tomorrow we go back to work for
@USAdultSoccer Fricker Open Cup.”
Lansdowne took a one-goal lead into the final minutes thanks to Joseph Lopez’s 33rd-minute score.
Then Bavarian equalized. The CSL club grabbed a 2-1 lead on Karim Russell’s curling free kick before its foes knotted things up again.
On Friday night, Lansdowne defeated the LA Wolves in the semifinals, 1-0.
