The DCHS Lady Tigers Soccer Team defeated Middle Tennessee Christian on the road Thursday 9-0.
Just 3 minutes into the game Angeles Soto scored an impressive first goal of the night for the Lady Tigers. Vibrant Nichole Walker drove a shot into the back post of the goal off of a well-played assist from Angeles Soto in just 23 minutes of the game. Just like that, we were off to a great start. The Lady Tigers are up 2-0. Like clockwork, the execution of the Lady Tiger midfield composed of Taylor Spare, Brooke Roller, Lydia Trail, Haley Summers, Kamien Sparks, and Jerica Braswell would find forward Haleigh Bass in front of the goal again in the 24th, 30th and 37th minute with the assist from Lydia Trail. With three goals in the first 37 minutes, Haleigh Bass completed the “hat trick”, and the Lady Tigers would be up 5-0 at half time.
Starting the 2nd half of the game, Angeles Soto would score her 2nd goal of the night. Within 46 minutes into the game a penalty kick taken by defender Morgan Odom completed a power shot straight and hard into the back post of the goal giving the Lady Tigers a 7-0 lead. Once again, an assist from Angeles Soto provided a killer pass for Haleigh Bass on her breakaway to complete another goal for the team. With only a minute left in the game Angeles Soto would complete her "hat trick" for the night with Brooke Roller providing the assist. Overall, the DeKalb Soccer Program showed strength in several areas. With the strong defense of Jackie Overbey, Morgan Odom, Hannah James, and captain Savannah Driver, the Lady Tigers did not give up a goal. Both goalkeepers, Katie Hall and Jessica Billings, showed strong performances throughout the night. The Lady Tigers continued to flex their goal scoring muscles finishing with a 9-0 victory, and wrapping up a very successful night.
The Lady Tigers are looking forward to their upcoming match Tuesday 6:30 at home against Murfreesboro Central Magnet. Please come and out and support the soccer program.
