The DeKalb County Tiger soccer team has had an amazing week.The team played three district championship games this week, the first against York, then another against Livingston, and a final battle for the title against Friendship Christian School.The Tigers enjoyed a mile-stone victory, taking the district gold for the first time in their nine year history with a 2-1 win against FCS. The game against York on Monday was almost a warm-up for the Tigers.DeKalb demolished their opponent with a final score of 14-0.Javier Sanchez, Cameron Lester, Ben Pafford, and other players all made multiple goals.Wesley Burchfield made his first goal ever from a penalty kick.The ball remained at the York goalpost most of the game, but the defense made many great plays.The offense also made phenomenal passes and worked well together. Tuesday night's game was against Livingston.After the Tigers first ever win against the team a week before, the Tigers were looking for more action.The game did indeed have much action.Four minutes into the game, goal scoring machine Javier Sanchez put the first score on the board with an assist from Ben Pafford. With 13 minutes expired from the clock an uproar broke out in the stands.During a play the whistle was blown, it was short but still heard.
