Utah All-State boys’ soccer: Winning by sheer net force

First Published Jun 04 2012 12:08 pm • Last Updated Jun 15 2012 04:22 pm

Soccer is not an individual sport, but it is a game that highlights its individuals. Whether John Taylor was looping home a free kick in the playoffs, Ethan Cash was stopping the state’s best player (thus making a case for himself), David Ignacio was trying new tricks or Carlo Garcia was scoring —again — these four stood out. They were the best.
