You can add another item to SPFHS boys soccer head coach Tom Breznitsky’s long list of accomplishments after Thursday.
Breznitsky won his 700th career game as head coach on Thursday as the Raiders defeated Elizabeth 2-1 in overtime.
Senior Robert Devine-Gelling scored the game-winning goal as he got past his defender on the left wing and beat the keeper to his right.
The Raiders originally took the lead about 10 minutes in when senior Ryan Peterson scored his third goal of the season.
Senior goalie Sean Murray made six saves in net.
With the victory, Coach Breznitsky is now tied for seventh in the country in career wins and is third all-time in the state behind Pingry head coach Miller Bugliari and former Columbia head coach Gene Chyzowych.
The Raiders are now 4-0 on the season and their next game scheduled for Saturday against Union at home at 3:00.
