Bryce Gabelhart fired a rebound into the net with 3:18 remaining in the first overtime Tuesday night to give undefeated Peters Township a 2-1 victory over host Canon-McMillan in a Section 2-AAAA match.

Peters Township (9-0, 12-0-1), which has already clinched the section title, took a 1-0 lead in the first half when Kyle McFerran scored off a corner Gabelhart had an assist.

Canon-McMillan (5-5, 8-5) tied the score at 1-1 with less than two minutes remaining in the first half when Brandon Byer scored off a cross from Nino Civitate.
