Xavier battles Desert Mtn. to 2-2 soccer tie

Xavier Prep’s soccer team scored a pair of second-half goals at Scottsdale Desert Mountain on Friday night (Jan. 6) but was kept off the board in each of the two overtimes as the teams had to settle for a 2-2 tie.
The Gators will be on the road again on Tuesday (Jan. 10) with a match at Chandler Hamilton.
It will be a rematch of sorts of last year’s Division I state semifinal between the two teams won by Hamilton 1-0. Hamilton went on to fall to Phoenix Desert Vista in a shootout in the championship match.
