BEREA - The Boyle County boys came from behind twice, then got a game-winning goal from Eric Curtis with 1:53 remaining Tuesday night to edge Madison Southern 3-2 and reach the finals of the 15th Region Tournament.
Curtis' second goal of the game gave Boyle (13-6-1) its first lead in its semifinal against host Southern (13-5-2).
"(It was) one of the most exciting soccer games that I have been a part of coaching," Boyle coach Greg Conley said.
Boyle, which lost the 30th District Tournament championship to Marion County last week but had won eight of its previous 10 games, will play Model in the regional final at 7 p.m. Thursday. Model defeated Marion 3-1 in Tuesday's first semifinal.
The Rebels' season has ended in the regional finals in each of the last two years, and they have never advanced from the regional to a sub-section game under the current postseason format.
