PAULDING — Victor Soto scored late in the first half to tie the game, and Victor Jurcevich gave Defiance the lead late in the second half as the Bulldogs beat Paulding 2-1 Monday in non-league boys soccer.

Koyla Paschall opened the game with a goal for the Panthers.

“We didn’t play our best game,” admitted Defiance coach Eric Burns. “We had a lot of opportunities. We just struggled putting the ball in the back of the net.”

Defiance is now 3-9-1 on the season. The Bulldogs travel to St. Marys Thursday.
