The game, Port St. Joe coach Gary Hindley said, was somewhat sloppy.

The results – the Tiger Sharks will take.

Port St. Joe won its second-straight District 1-1A boys’ soccer title, the third in four years, with a 4-2 win over Franklin County last Friday at Freeport High School.

Port St. Joe, 13-2-1, hosts Tallahassee Maclay, runner-up in District 2-1A, at 6 p.m. ET Wednesday at Sam Cox Field.

Port St. Joe started quickly against Franklin County as junior forward Caleb Odum scored in the seventh minute, set up by an assist from Daniel Jones. It was Odum’s sixth goal of the season.

Seven minutes later midfielder Drew Lacour headed in a corner kick from Justin Hites to make it 2-0.

Just a minute later, Franklin County cut the score to 2-1 before sophomore forward Marcel Duarte scored his 32nd goal of the year in the 32nd minute and Port St. Joe was up 3-1 at halftime.
