After suffering a huge defeat 6-0 to the TECH Roadrunners in Monday, the VVHS soccer guys came back from the brink to score two second half goals against the undefeated Del Sol High School Dragons to tie the match 2-2 giving them the last spot in the 3A Southern Division soccer playoffs. “We pulled off the impossible,” said Bulldog head coach Chris Park. “We had to at least tie Del Sol the undefeated first place team in our division and one of the best teams in the state to make the playoffs plus Boulder City had to lose also. We came back from a 2-0 deficit.” Bulldog Roman Perez struck goal midway through the second half cutting the Dragons lead to 2-1. Pedro Osuna-Gomez was knocked down in the box with less than one minute remaining setting up a penalty kick. Gomez stuffed it for the tie despite huge complaints from Del Sol. The Bulldogs played their best soccer of the season during the second half as they took it to the Dragons. Now the Dawgs need to perform another impossible feat, the Dawgs face the Sunrise Mountain High School Miners Tuesday Nov.1 at Bettye Wilson Park in Las Vegas. The Miners are 10-0 in league play and 14-0 overall. The Dawgs will have nothing to lose especially nine seniors who will be playing their last high school soccer match unless they manage to do what others are saying is impossible.
