As the Duxbury High forward barreled down the right side wing, took a left diagonal route toward the goal and then launched a shot on net, Stephen McSwain took to the air.
The 6-foot-2, 175-pound Silver Lake keeper dove, from left to right, fully extending his body and tipped the ball wide of the goal post, keeping the game tied, 1-1, midway through the second half.
McSwain loves the pressure that comes with defending the goal.
“For me, especially if it’s something like a breakaway, it’s always about taking up space, getting big and trying to intimidate them,” said McSwain, a senior.
The Silver Lake boys, off to a 3-0-1 start, netted a pair of late goals for a 3-1 win last Tuesday afternoon. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
