Dons sneak past Dinos in overtime

Sun Advocate sports reporter

As the clock continued to tick down to the final whistle, the Carbon High boys soccer team could sense their first region win was within their reach. But Spanish Fork's Josh Soto had other plans.

Soto scored a late equalizer in regulation off a free kick from distance tying the game sending the Dons' bench into a frenzy and forcing the game into overtime.

After leading 1-0 off a first half goal from senior Tanner Gagnon, the Dinos were pinned back on defense through much of the second half. After Soto's goal, the Dons nearly put the ball in the goal again thanks to an aggressive attack. But, fortunately for the Dinos, the shots from Spanish Fork hit the crossbar on two occasions before the referee blew the whistle signaling the end of regulation.

Spanish Fork (6-8-1 overall, 5-2-1 Region 12) wasted no time in the extra period taking control of the game. Soto broke free from his defender and when the ball got away in front of CHS goalkeeper Andrew Gagnon, he quickly put in the golden goal and started the celebration with his teammates at midfield while CHS players stood still, shocked at the outcome.

Soto ripped off his jersey during the celebration which caught the ire of the referee and drew a yellow card.

With the loss, CHS (2-10-2 overall, 0-7-1 Region 12) remained winless in region play. Despite the record, CHS continued to play through each game and never backed down or gave up.
