Regulation isn't enough!

Kofa boys soccer knocks off San Luis in double OT!

YUMA, Ariz. - One of the Desert Southwest's storied rivalries in any sport is living up to the hype.

The Kofa Kings and San Luis Sidewinders boys soccer teams couldn't decide their 1st match of the season more than a month ago; as the two programs settled for a tie after 2 overtime periods.

Even though the scene shifts to Irv Pallack Field at Kofa High School, for the 2nd straight time regulation wouldn't be enough to settle this rivalry contest.

Both teams would trade a pair of goals in the 1st half, as the Sidewinder's Erik Vera would score the match tying goal; courtesy of a 1st time volley past keeper Juan Guzman.

From there, both defenses would lock down; as both teams failed to add any more goals in regulation time and even the 1st overtime period.

With only 4 seconds remaining in the 2nd overtime, the Kings would pull off a dramatic victory with an Abraham Ramirez goal.

Kofa will likely earn a spot in the state tournament, with the 3-2 win.
