Road games to become norm for Carbon High boys soccer team
Carbon's final four games require plenty of time on the road traveling
Over the last two seasons, the Carbon High Dinos boys soccer team hasn't had a whole lot to celebrate.
But behind the big losses and tough games, CHS Head Coach Keith Palmer knew there was plenty of things to be pleased about.
And two years later, the Dinos are positioned to return to the 3A playoffs for the first time since 2011.
The Dinos split a win, 1-0 over Juab on April 2 and a loss, 1-0 to region leader Payson on Friday afternoon at the CHS Soccer Field.
Despite the loss, Palmer said his team played well.
"While we didn't win, that was probably the best we've played all season long," said Palmer.
Palmer noted the team was without midfielder Jamin Jensen for the past two games. Jensen could return or he could miss the rest of the season, Palmer said.
With four games left, the Dinos will need to become accustomed to playing on the road. Two of the games are non-region contests, with the first coming against Bear River on Thursday afternoon.
At 3-3 in Region play, Palmer said the Dinos are still in position to host a home playoff game if they finish in the top two in Region 12 play.
