The No. 11 Mount St. Joseph boys soccer team was winless against No. 3 Calvert Hall this season until senior Donald Gibson lofted a pass over the defense to a charging Stafford Chipungu, who beat goalie Kyle Whitman to put the visiting Gaels into the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference semifinals with a 1-0 overtime win yesterday.

In the past two meetings, the Cardinals won, 2-0, and tied Mount St. Joseph (9-7-4), 1-1 on the road.

Chipungu's goal came six minutes into overtime, just minutes after a scoring opportunity in which he made a cross to Tyrone Hall but Whitman put a hand on the ball to prevent a solid strike on net.

Gaels coach Mike St. Martin credited his defense of Gibson, Bryan Mulford, Vince Garafalo and Chris Robinson with helping force the overtime, as Calvert Hall was attacking Mount St. Joseph's net in the final 20 minutes of regulation.

The Gaels will travel to No. 2 McDonogh for Thursday's semifinal match at 3 p.m.
