In a rematch of last year’s Division 4 South final, junior striker Whit Swartwood netted the winner with 18 minutes left, lifting the 16th-ranked Cohasset boys’ soccer team to a pivotal 2-1 South Shore League win over host Carver on Wednesday.
Swartwood tucked around an edge of defenders and fired a shot just inside the near-post.
‘‘We needed some young people to step up and they did,’’ said Cohasset coach Jim Willis. ‘‘Our depth really showed up.’’
Senior captain Kyle Osborne left the game for the Skippers (5-0-1) with an injury in the first half. However, Jack Elliot stepped up and delivered a free-kick goal in the 22nd minute.
Carver tied the match 1-1 late in the first half on a goal from dynamic striker Dominic Craig.
But the Skippers defense shut the door from there, limiting a Crusader attack that was averaging four goals per game to just one. Cohasset also beat Carver 2-1 in the sectional final last year.
‘‘We have two very good center backs in Ben Smith and Ian Appleby and we contained them the best we could,’’ said Willis.
