Soccer: Dixon defeats Southwest 5-4 in overtime

The Dixon Bulldogs soccer team defeated Southwest Stallions 5-4 in a hard fought match that required a game winning goal by senior Kris Cotter with less than 5 minutes to go in the second overtime.

These two front-runners for the Coastal Plains 1-A Conference title battled throughout regulation and overtime with the decision hanging in the balance all the while. This will surely be on the minds of both as they play again at Dixon High School October 19, 2009.

For more on the game check out the Jacksonville Daily News story Cotter's overtime goal lifts Dixon past Southwest.
