Dinos suffer shutout at Salem Hills

Sun Advocate sports reporter

A tired and short-handed Carbon High soccer team was unable to produce as they faced the Salem Hills Skyhawks the day after they had done battle with Juan Diego. They left Salem Hills sporting a 4-0 loss.

Coach Patrick Clifford was a little frustrated as the team headed into the game missing five varsity players, but he gave a lot of credit to the team that took the field for Carbon.

"They played well with determination and fought hard. I can't say enough of the kids that took the field for us. I truly believe if we had been at full strength we could have easily won the game," he stated.

Carbon held the Skyhawks scoreless in the first half of play. But the drag of being down five starters as well as playing the back to back games took its toll in the second period and it was all Salem Hills from there on.

The player Clifford was most impressed with was Brandon Gagnon.

"He is an All-State defender and his play yesterday showed why," stated Clifford. "I had him defending several of the speediest players on Salem Hills because he was the only one we had with the speed to do it and he did all he was asked to do and more."

The Dinos head up to play Juan Diego again on Tuesday. They take a break from region action on Friday with an away game with Union. Union will be in the new region 10 with Carbon next season so it will be a sneak peek of things to come for the Dinos.
