Sam Schmidt’s late goal lifted Waconia over Breck 2-1 on Thursday night in Golden Valley.

Schmidt’s corner kick curled into the net after grazing the outstretched fingertips of Breck goalkeeper Gunnar Evenstad with 15 seconds remaining on the clock.

Will Falkman struck first for the No. 3-1A Wildcats, booting an unassisted tally about midway through the second half to extend his scoring streak to four goals in the past three games.

With the victory, the Wildcats pushed their winning streak to five matches, while the Mustangs saw their five-game winning streak snapped.
