It wasn't a win, but it wasn't a loss either.

The Carbon Dino soccer team played Uintah to a 2-2 tie on Tuesday afternoon. It was a hard fought game against a good opponent.

The Dinos were the first to put a goal through for a point. A cross from Florian Robbe to Fernando Mendoza gave Carbon the early lead. Throughout the entire first half Uintah took more shots on goal, 21-15, but goalie Adam Bedont repelled them all and the half ended 1-0 in favor of the Carbon kids.

Five minutes into the second period Cal Samuelson poked another one in for the Dinos and they had a 2-0 edge. Carbon out shot the Utes 12-5 in the half.

But a good team is never out of the game and Uintah hit two great shots of their own to tie it up. Because it was a preseason game, the game was called even at the end of regulation play.

"A win would have been better than a tie, but I saw a lot of positive in this game," said Carbon head coach Patrick Clifford. "Uintah is a good passing team and we played them 50-50. Our players passed well and are beginning to share the ball and not trying to do it all by themselves. It was a good physical, well played game on both sides with no cheap shots. We had fun"

The soccer team takes on Grantsville on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. on the field behind Carbon High.
