Gila Ridge wins rematch!

1st half goal decides heated contest

YUMA, Ariz. - The Gila Ridge boys soccer team is on a roll. After all, they've only lost a single match all season (at Kofa) and they just came off an unbeaten performance at the Arizona Soccer Showcase Tournament.

Now, the Hawks were getting a rematch against the Kofa Kings. Like the last match between the two programs, the margin of error was slim; with the contest decided by a single goal.

It would come in the first half of this defensive match, as Ivan Gonzalez put up a beautiful long range free kick from around mid-field that would sail to the back of Kofa's net.

The win brings the Hawks overall record to 8-1-1 with a big contest Thursday night at San Luis. Meanwhile, Kofa will try to rebound at home this Friday as they take on Pinnacle.
