It took 100 minutes of play for the PHS Badgers to overcome a tough Saguaro boys soccer team. Both teams battled for 60 minutes before Saguaro broke the deadlock with a goal off a corner kick. 10 minutes later Brayden Nelson evened up the scores for the Badgers with a header from a long range ball from Trevor Cargill.
The game went into double overtime and Claudio Orozco broke free from 2 defenders with some deceptive footwork and slotted home the game winner in the 98th minute. He had 2 more opportunities but failed to extend the lead.
Coach Phil Reid attributed the win to the players digging deep and playing for each other. “It was a hard fought game but the boys pulled together, playing for each other, and came away with the win. It’s a good start to the season “.
The Badgers will face Poston Butte on Thursday 5pm at Bill Shepeard field.
