Late Chelan goal beats ’Dogs

— Chelan scored a late goal for a 1-0 soccer victory over Okanogan on Saturday that completed a two-game season sweep.

“Chelan and Okanogan have been going back forth for third and fourth places in league,” Chelan assistant soccer coach Jim Broome said. “Both teams came to the game knowing how important this game was for the post season. Both teams came to play and gave everything they had.”

Chelan, which blanked Okanogan 2-0 earlier this year, scored on a Cristian Barajas goal (assist by Joaquin Garcia) in the 70th minute (games are to 80 minutes).

Okanogan finished with 23 shots on goal compared to 20 for Chelan.
