Zach Abdulrahman felt he let an opportunity slip away in last week’s match against River Bluff.

But the Chapin senior midfielder made up for it Thursday by scoring the game-winning goal 15 seconds in overtime to give the Eagles a 2-1 win over River Bluff. With the victory, Chapin wins the Region 5-5A title and Lexington will earn the No. 2 spot from the region in the postseason, which begins next week.

River Bluff, which would have won the region with a victory, is eliminated from postseason play. Only the top two teams from each region make the playoffs this year because of COVID-19. Chapin, River Bluff and Lexington all were ranked in the top 10 in Class 5A polls and Chapin was ranked No. 2 nationally at one point this season.

River Bluff defeated Chapin, 2-1, on Friday in overtime and trailed late in the second half before Matthew Rotola tied it with a goal in the 67th minute.

Both teams had a couple chances to win in regulation but couldn’t convert.

Abdulrahman wasted little time in the first five-minute OT period with a header for the game-winner.

Foster Smith also scored for Chapin.
