It was a tale of two halves for the Widefield Gladiators. After a slow start, widefield dominated the first half, scoring two goals and dominating the time of possession. Scoring in the 11th minute was Xavier Valtierra on a cross from Diego Gaytan. The second goal with just over 10 minutes remaining as Aron Flores put another cross from Gaytan into the back of the net.
After a lengthy half time due to Mesa Ridge’s senior night, the Gladiators looked like an entirely different team, allowing three goals by Caleb DesBouillons. The first of his goals came in the opening minute of the second half and the Gladiators seemed to lose their composure, and in spite of multiple opportunities, could not notch another score.
