Pictured from right are DeKalbs senior players: Luis Richards, Thomas Beltz, Zach Thompson, Mason Merriman, Zach Taylor and Rusty Storey. The team took a fairly acceptable parting gift in the form of a district championship this year.
The DeKalb County soccer team claimed their second consecutive district 8-AA title beating out Central Magnet 2-1.The Tigers hosted the opening game of the district tournament at home on Monday evening against The Smith County Owls. The Tigers walked away with an easy victory, crushing the Owls 6-1, keeping their play-off hopes alive.In the opening minutes of play, it was clear that DeKalb was determined to give the Owls everything they had as the Tigers dominated possession 60 percent to the Owls’ 40 percent in the first half. With the Tigers in control of possession for most of the half, they had their chances at goal.
