Burlington High School junior soccer player Harrison Murray stormed over the sideline, punched the bench and sat down and stewed for a while.

Murray had just missed a golden opportunity to put his team ahead on cross-street rival Notre Dame-West Burlington, whiffing on a shot as Nikes' goalkeeper T.J. Schramm scooped up the ball.

Given another chance — or two — Murray made sure he didn't make the same mistake. Murray buried a pair of shots off beautiful through balls from senior captain Alec Henrich a minute apart in the final seven minutes, lifting the Grayhounds to a 3-1 victory Tuesday night at Tackleson Field.

After letting the earlier scoring opportunity slip away, Murray more than made up for it.

"It definitely felt good after I missed that first one. I just choked on that. I went off on the bench, sitting out. I felt really down in the dumps. I knew that when I got back in I had to do something to get back," Murray said. "I was just getting angry. I was just fueling off that anger the last few minutes."

"I think they played a higher defensive line at the moment so we just tried to spring a ball in behind. They sat back for most of the game, but once we got one they opened up a little bit more in the back line," BHS coach Chris Madigan said. "Great through balls. (Henrich) showed some composure and threaded them through. We had some great runs behind, as well."

Class 1A's 13th-ranked ND-WB (12-3), fresh off an upset of fourth-ranked Iowa Mennonite School on Saturday in the championship match of the SEI Superconference Tournament, couldn't get anything going in the first 40 minutes against BHS (6-6), which was fresh off a 3-1 win over Clinton 24 hours earlier.

BHS broke the scoreless tie with eight minutes left in the first half when Henrich hit Jestin Bray with a perfect pass through the box and Bray beat Schramm to the near post.

"I think the guys were up for the game. They had a little burst of energy," Madigan said.

The Nikes came out with renewed energy in the second half, putting the pressure on the BHS defense. Jacob Kamrath fed a pass to Jakob Anderson, who went top shelf to beat Max Wiemann and knot the match at 1.

"Sturgis Thorton started playing better. We kind of got in our heads and I don't know what we were thinking. We were kind of on the high from Saturday, I think. But it's all right. It's a humbling experience. Every good team loses once in a while. It's not a big deal. I think they understand more than in years past. In years past we would have gone downhill quick after this game. This year's team can take it. I think they're resilient," ND-WB coach Will Cahill said.

The match seemed destined for overtime, but Henrich and Murray had other ideas, hooking up twice in a 60-second span to give the Grayhounds their seventh consecutive win over their cross-street rival.

"That was huge. I really wasn't expecting to score off that pass, just coming off. Just a couple good passes inside and a solid through ball from Alec and it was off to the races," Murray said. "It's huge. Words can somewhat describe it, but the feeling is phenomenal. They are always talking about how they're going to beat us this year. Well, it's seven years in a row that we've come out on top."

"They're a great side, so it's nice to come down here and start a winning run again for the season," Madigan said

"Some of them shouldn't have happened. We had a freshman playing centerback. It's kind of in his head now. Like I told them before the game, I would rather lose to this team if that means we actually have a shot at going to state. This game, all the players get hyped for, but it's just another game for me. It would be nice to beat them, but that's all right," Cahill said.
