Congratulations to Dixon High Men's Soccer!


To capture the 1-A North Carolina State Men's Soccer Championship, the Dixon Bulldogs scored three second-half goals to rally from a 1-0 halftime deficit and defeat Polk County 3-1.

With Polk County grabbing a 1-0 advantage in the game’s first 10 minutes on a goal (Russell Kooistra), the Bulldogs retaliated with 2 of their own in a span of 3:35 early in the second half and then put it away with a goal with 4:25 to play. Cory Bowman of the Bulldogs tied the score at the 44:07 mark, and then freshman midfielder Cameron Pitz scored at 47:42 to give Dixon the lead for good. A goal by the speedy sophomore forward James Hansley late in the contest put it away for Dixon. Dixon played most of the game without its leading scorer, Sean Oliveira, who suffered a head injury and was unable to continue. Dixon’s balance and depth made the difference in the contest, especially in the second half. Dixon senior forward Justin Oliver, was voted the Most Valuable Player in the Championship. The Bulldogs earned their first NCHSAA men’s soccer championship in a rematch of the 2003 title game in which Polk beat the Bulldogs 2-1. Dixon ended the season with a record of 14-5-2 after being 4-4-2 at one point.

If you see coach Kevin Hicks, assistant coach Brown or any of the players, let them know that Sneads Ferry supports the Dixon Bulldogs and we are all so proud of them!
