GILBERT, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Top seed Queen Creek established itself early in Thursday night's Division II Boys Soccer Semifinal at Williams Field High School in Gilbert.
The Bulldogs scored the first of their three first half goals in the opening minute of play on their way to a 3-0 win over Mountain View.
Queen Creek (15-3-2) advances to Saturday's State Championship game to play San Luis, the team that dethroned defending state titlist Tucson High.
It was just after the opening whistle that Bulldogs captain Jacob Dominguez made a perfect center-pass to freshman Kholton Farrell who punched it in past Mountain Lions goal keeper Ricky Starbird.
Dominguez added a score of his own in the 12th minute thanks to a great floating pass from Damian Sanchez.
Mountain View (13-4-2) did not give up. The Lions had numerous scoring opportunities in the second half but Bulldogs goal keeper Felix Amenda made clutch save after clutch save to preserve the shutout.
