The Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School boys’ soccer team on Tuesday breezed into the District 1-1A title match with an 8-0 thrashing of Freeport, the host school for the tournament.

Port St. Joe will face Franklin County, a 2-1 winner over Rocky Bayou Tuesday, in the championship game on Friday night.

The Tiger Sharks, 12-2-1, have swept Franklin County this year; 5-1 at home Nov. 27 and 3-1 at Franklin County Dec. 13.

With their wins Tuesday, both teams clinched berths in the regional playoffs next week.

Port St. Joe scored early as ninth-grader and first-time starter Jake Dickinson notched his first goal of the season, unassisted, just three minutes into the game.

Marcel Duarte, who notched his sixth hat trick of the season, scored in the 11th minute on an assist from midfielder Drew Lacour. It was Lacour’s 13th assist of the year, a team high.

Jacob Lacour and Kaleb Odum assisted to set up Duarte again in the 13th minute mark and Duarte scored his third-straight goal four minutes later, with Drew Lacour and Daniel Jones assisting.
