Brock Benzel scored in the second minute of double overtime to lift the Central Valley Bears to a 1-0 boys soccer win over the visiting Pasco Bulldogs on Tuesday and into the Class 4A state playoffs.
“It was a tough game. They scored off a long throw-in,” Pasco coach Matt Potter said.
Pasco outshot Central Valley 7-6 but couldn’t convert any offensive chances. Bulldogs goalkeeper Jon Rosas made five saves.
Pasco (12-6) will play host to Ferris (14-2) at 1 p.m. Saturday at Edgar Brown Stadium for a state berth.
“We’re very grateful for any chance, anywhere,” Potter said. “From here on out, you don’t get any more chances.”
