When Dalton Ogdon slid the winning shot past the Lakeside goalie and into the back of the net, he accomplished something no Bonney Lake boys soccer player ever had.
He sent the Panthers to the Class 3A state quarterfinals.
Ogdon's goal in the 75th minute gave Bonney Lake a 1-0 win Tuesday night at Interbay Soccer Field.
"Two years ago, we were at this same spot (Interbay) and we lost to the same team in the sweet 16," Ogdon said. "This is history, I guess."
Bonney Lake (16-4) will host Shorewood or Wilson this weekend.
Ogdon's goal was a late, pleasant surprise for the Panthers, who spent the first 60 minutes seemingly at Lakeside's mercy.
The Lions (14-4) dominated the first half, putting four shots on goal to zero for the Panthers, and had plenty of good looks against Bonney Lake goalie Moxie Oseland. But Oseland repeatedly stymied the Lions.
At halftime, Bonney Lake coach Luke Helling-Christy made a tactical change.
"We just decided to tighten the field," he said.
Late in the second period, forward Suwilanji Silozi fired a cross into the box from the right side, and Ogdon took care of the rest.
"I just hit the ball, and I was hoping for it to go in," Ogdon said. "The odds were with me."
The Lions pressured the Panthers' defense in the final five minutes but could never crack Oseland, who finished with a clean sheet.
