REHOBOTH — Kevin Smith tallied a pair of dramatic goals as the Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High boys’ soccer team held off Bishop Feehan High 2-1 Monday in a clash of area titans.
Smith scored the go-ahead goal for the defending South Coast Conference champion Falcons on a penalty kick in the 13th minute after a Shamrock handball infraction.
Smith broke a 1-1 halftime deadlock by regaining the lead for D-R in the 77th minute on a rebound after Reece Cordeiro had funneled the ball into the penalty box area.“D-R is a well-organized team,” Feehan coach Mike Pariseau said. “They gave us trouble.”
Bishop Feehan gained the tying tally late in the first half on a goal by Tate Demond with Jim Fasy assisting.
“That’s a hard-working team that Feehan has, they gave us a good test,” D-R coach Mike Morgado said.
