ST. GEORGE — An overtime win at home by Dixie and a road win by Pine View have created quite a traffic pile-up at the top of Region 9 in boys soccer, with four teams with one loss each as we near the halfway point of region play.

dixie-smsnow-canyon-smDixie threw its hat in that mix with a 2-1 overtime win over Snow Canyon Friday night at Walt Brooks Stadium.

The Flyers trailed 1-0 at halftime as Jonathan Tuscano’s first-half goal was the only tally in the opening 40 minutes. Dixie tied the game before regulation expired, then took the win with an OT goal to improve its record to 6-1-2 overall and 3-1-1 in region play.

Caeser Perez and Jonathan Acosta had the two goals for the Flyers. It was the second goal of the season for each of those players. Dixie plays at Canyon View next Tuesday night.
