Carbon soccer faces more losses as season nears end

Sun Advocate sports reporter

Region play has been tough for the Dino soccer team as they have struggled to win a game.

Last week was no exception. They began on April 17, with a 3-2 loss in a non-region game against Union. On Wednesday they dropped another game to Delta with a 5-1 loss. And then on Friday they found themselves again on the losing end of a 3-0 affair against Salem Hills.

In the Union game it was Jose Munoz and Francisco Zaragoza that scored for Carbon. Coach Patrick Clifford felt like his team played really well and actually outshot the Cougars 25-12. But in the end it was another loss to a team that will be part of Carbon's new region next year.

Against Delta Clifford felt like his Dinos played some good soccer for 90 percent of the game. With five minutes left it was 2-1 in favor of Delta and the game was still within reach. That final five minutes was a bonanza for Delta as they punched in three goals for the big win. Cal Samuelson put in the lone goal for the Dinos.

Even with the lopsided score Clifford expressed that he was still proud of the way his team played hard against the top region team.

Finally, the team finished up the week with a home match against Salem Hills. The first half ended in a 0-0 stalemate. Carbon had even out shot the Sky Hawks 12-10.

Penalty calls against the Dinos cost them two goals in the second half and then Salem scored one final time in the second half and it was all over.

Clifford felt like his team out played Salem in the first half, but Salem out played them in the final period. Again he felt like his team played well, but came up short.

"It's been the story of our season," he said, "We just didn't catch any breaks."

The team has one final regular season game on Monday against North Sanpete and then will begin play-offs on Thursday.

If things stay as they are now, Carbon will travel to Logan for a play-in game.
