Soccer loss to Park City

First there was Wasatch and then Park City. The two toughest teams in the region left the Carbon girls soccer team reaching deep this week. Tuesday they lost to Wasatch and then they found themselves again on the losing end with a 6-1 defeat to Park City on Thursday.

The Dinos started off well and made sure they did not give up quick goals to the Miners on Thursday. But through the first half Park City picked away at them to put up four points.

The Miners have a team of 50 girls to throw against the much smaller numbers that the Lady Dinos have to pull from. Fresh legs for the opponents made it tough for the Carbon girls to keep up as the game wore on.

As the first half, wore on, Coach Upwall decided to change out Goalie Lydia Jeppson with Olivia Upwall to stem the scoring barrage and it seemed to work.

If you threw out the first half, the second half score was a close game. Park City only managed two shots into the net and the Dino offense was able to send one past the Miner's goalie. Felicia Olmos did the honors for Carbon on a penalty kick after being fouled in the box.

Upwall told his team that despite the loss, they needed to look at the game as a great opportunity to learn. Park City had a great passing game and the Dinos certainly benefited from watching the skill and finesse shown on the field. Seeing the score in the second half, Upwall knew if Carbon had played in the first half as they did second half, it would have been quite a different. Maybe not a win, but certainly a better score.

Upwall really has seen an improvement in the Dino defense and is upbeat on the direction the team is headed.

Next week will be a little less intense as the Dinos hope to beat Union and ALA on their home turf. Both games will take place at 3:30 p.m. on the Carbon High soccer field. Union will arrive on Tuesday and ALA will roll into town on Thursday.
