Boys end losing skein, girls’ winning streak halted on soccer pitch

Published: Thursday, January 16, 2014 at 09:29 AM.

The Lady Tiger Sharks lost a 5-1, their most lopsided loss of the season.

Sophomore forward Kathleen Rish (the team’s second leading scorer) put Port St. Joe on the board early with her 12th goal of the season in the 18th minute. It was all South Walton from there as the Seahawks scored twice in the first half and three times in the second half.

Goalkeeper Celeste Chiles had a rough night, facing 12 South Walton shots and allowing all five goals while recording five saves.

A deflected goal by forward Jake Dickinson (his fourth of the year, the second game-winner) in the 88th minute was the margin in the boys’ 2-1 victory.

The win ended a four-game losing streak.

Drew Lacour scored on a penalty kick in the 61st minute, his ninth goal of the season and fourth penalty shot goal in four attempts. South Walton got the equalizer six minutes later on its own penalty kick, before Dickinson's heroics gave the Tiger Sharks the win.

Goalkeeper Tyler Alford had what Coach Gary Hindley called one of his best games in goal, facing 10 South Walton shots and making six saves.
