Men's Soccer charges into District Tourney

Juan Obando was honored before the game on Senior Night and after scoring the game-winning goal in the 70th minute, he honored all his teammates as Man of the Match as Men's Soccer defeated visiting Seminole, 2-1, closing out the regular season undefeated in nine of their final ten matches. After a rough start to the season which saw the Panthers debut with a record of 0-4-1, DP finished 6-1-3 behind the senior leadership of Obando, Brian Cleven, Nigel Hidie, Moses Nunez and Manuel Rodriguez. The Panthers got themselves on the board quickly in the tenth minute when Colin Cleven took a corner kick from Gabriel Mesquita and chipped it into the upper 90 for a 1-0 lead. Tied 1-1 in the second half, DP kept up their aggressive play and it paid off. Another corner kick from Mesquita bounced around in the box but Juan Obando knocked it home for the decisive goal. Andres Alvarez had another spectacular night in goal, turning aside nine shots. DP (6-5-4) enters the District Tournament on a roll and will take on host Gateway in the quarterfinal round Tuesday at 7:00 pm.
