Raiders fall short in intense soccer battle with Dolphins

Isaac Long walked off the field still holding his head up high, not that it was easy to do.

Not after Navarre suffered a loss to rival Gulf Breeze in boys soccer, losing 2-1 in painful fashion, the Dolphins producing the game-winner with under a minute left last Tuesday night at Dolphin Stadium.

“It’s really tough. We were holding that game. The intensity slipped a little at the end,” Long said.

Twice in the span of a minute late in the game the Dolphins took two shots that seemed destined to find the back of the net. One bounced off the crossbar. The other was just a little wide. Korey Betts came through with a big save in between.

Betts then made another save that kept Gulf Breeze from snapping the 1-1 tie. Off the rebound, the Dolphins cashed in.

Long is part of the Raider backline. He’s also a captain on the soccer team. He said the Raiders need to do a better job as a unit of keeping the opponent from capitalizing late in a game, especially a tightly contested one.
