AFTER HUGE WIN AGAINST ST. ALBERT, RIVERSIDE BOYS SOCCER ON VERGE OF STATE


(Oakland) The Riverside boys soccer team posted one of their biggest wins in program history last night by knocking off perennial power St. Albert. They beat the Falcons 2-1 in two overtimes to advance to the substate final. Malachi Dillon had the game winning goal in the 2nd overtime.

 

The win puts the Bulldogs on the doorstep of a state tournament berth. Coach John Thomas says the win over St. Albert was huge on several levels. It has the team just a game away from state. Standing in their way will be a Tri-Center team that they have already defeated twice this season (5-0 and 3-0). Coach Thomas says he knows Tri-Center will 'bring it' but believes he has the better team.

 

Saturday's substate final will be played at Riverside at noon. Riverside is 11-6 while Tri-Center enters at 5-9. The Trojans advanced with a win over Underwood in Wednesday's sem-final.

 

A state tournament berth is something the team had their eye on coming into the season. They return a veteran lineup with several juniors that have been three year starters.
