Dayton soccer bests White Pine, ties West Wendover
The Dust Devils’ defense played a big part in Dayton moving to 3-5-1 on the year with a 2-1 win over White Pine on Friday and a 1-1 draw with West Wendover on Saturday.
Noah Gibson and Alex Anguiano had the two goals for Dayton in the win over White Pine as Isaac Guadarrama and Juan Torres assisted on the two goals.
Gibson was on the receiving end of a through ball from Torres before putting the ball past the keeper. Anguiano ripped a hard shot to the opposite side of the goal in the second half as the game winner.
“We dominated the majority of the game and had plenty of scoring opportunities but couldn’t quite get the ball in the net,” said Dayton head coach Luis Melgarejo.
Against West Wendover, Luke Devibar put away the game’s first goal, taking advantage of a rebound off a West Wendover defender.
The Wolverines answered with a goal in the last five minutes of the first half, tying the contest at 1-1 which ended up being the final score.
“It was a tough fought game and the windy conditions didn’t help either team,” said Melgarejo.
