Men's Soccer surges past Evans into Finals
1/31/2018 9:39:00 PM

Men's Soccer surrendered a goal just ten minutes into their District Semifinal match with Evans but roared back with a pair of goals for a 2-1 victory and a berth in Friday's championship game. Senior Juan Sebastian Rodriguez took a perfect pass from Gabriel Gonzalez-Alcala and knocked home his first career varsity goal to tie the game at 1-1. For Gonzalez-Alcala, it was his 20th assist of the season and without question, the most important. In the second half, the DP back line of Brandon Perrotti, Dylan Smith, Sam Ross and Gabriel Gonzalez shut down every Evans attack and in the 65th minute, DP struck again. Junior Matt Clark, who had practiced nearly identical free kicks from the same distance in practice a day earlier, told coach Joel Dobrowolski "Let me take it and I'll bury it." And he did just that. Clark drilled the kick from 20 yards out and bent it inside the right post for the go-ahead goal to send the Panthers into the Regional Tournament for the first time since 2006. DP (13-6-2), winners of five straight and seven of the last eight games, will take on host Olympia Friday night at 7:00 pm for the District Championship. Regional Tournament play begins Wednesday, February 7th.
