This in no way looked like a team that had been physically dominated and seemingly overmatched through two quarters. The Dragons didn’t play like it the rest of the way, either. Del Sol turned a sloppy first half into a golden second half to slide by Southeast division rival Silverado 28-24 Friday night.
