The streak had to end at some point.
The Port St. Joe boys’ soccer team settled for a 1-1 tie last Saturday against visiting Rocky Bayou, the first game of the season the Tiger Sharks (5-0-1 overall, 3-0-1 in District 1-1A) had failed to win outright.
The Tiger Sharks scored first as senior midfielder Daniel Jones found the net in the 12th minute (his 4th on the year). Drew Lacour and Marcel Duarte were credited with assists. Rocky Bayou netted the equalizer in the 45th minute on a long range shot that eluded Port St. Joe goalkeeper Tucker Smith.
Port St. Joe dominated the shots on goal, outshooting Rocky Bayou 25-8, with Smith making four saves.
The Port St Joe girls suffered a 2-1 loss to Rocky Bayou, dropping to 4-2-0 overall and 2-2-0 in district play.
Rocky Bayou jumped out to a 2-0 lead before Port St. Joe junior defender Brittney Shoemaker scored at the 68th minute mark to cut the lead in half. It was her first goal of the season and was unassisted. Junior Christian Laine started in goal and played 60 minutes for the Lady Tiger Sharks and made eight saves on 12 shots. Seventh grader Celeste Chiles played the remaining 20 minutes and had one save on two shots.
Both teams are on the road this week, playing at Franklin County on Tuesday, at Panama City Beach Arnold on Thursday and at Freeport on Saturday. Franklin County and Freeport are district games.
