PCC men drop soccer playoff tilt to Dodge
The Beavers ended their season yesterday with 1-0 loss to Dodge City Community College in the first round of the playoffs.
In the first half the Beavers defense held firm, yet the offense created very few chances.
The Pratt Beavers men's soccer team played a much tighter defense against Dodge City in this game than they did a week before when the two teams met to close out the regular season, also a 1-0 win by the Conquistadors.
The second half was much more exciting soccer with Nik Bohne and Gordo Rodriquez going close to scoring for the Beavers.
Scott Robertson in the nets for the Beavers came up with some big saves, but Dodge City managed a goal after 25 minutes into the half.

Pratt had all 11 men attacking the goal in the final two minutes of the game.
The Beavers' last chance to send the game into overtime was a shot by goalkeeper Scott Robertson from the top of the Dodge City penalty box that was stopped by Conqs' goalkeeper Rigo Sandoval.
Both Robertson and Sandoval had six saves in the contest.
This loss ended the Beavers season.
“I’m very proud of all my guys,” said Coach Kewley. “It was a terrific season finishing with 10-8 record and a 5th place finish.”
