Ridgefield boys soccer rallied from a two-goal halftime deficit to beat Hockinson 4-3 with an own goal in overtime Thursday.

Hockinson led 2-0 behind two unassisted goals from Alonzo Flores.

The Spudders started their comeback on Asher Adams’ goal in the 51st minute.

Joey Taylor then struck twice, scoring in the 59th and 75th minutes.

In overtime, Grant Platta played a ball toward the goal that deflected off a Hockinson defender and into the net.

That gave Ridgefield what could be a crucial win in the 2A Greater St. Helens League. The Spudders (3-0-1-1, 12 points) are alone in second place, three points behind unbeaten Columbia River.
