The Battle for Silver Point

The DeKalb County Tigers soccer team played the Upperman Bees Tuesday night. The Tigers got off to a quick start again with center forward Cristobal Flores scoring an unassisted goal in the 4th minute of the game. Maintaining most of the possession, the Tigers were able to create several good chances on Goalkeeper Chandler Street of Upperman who finished the game with 12 saves. In the 15th minute, one of those chances paid off with an unassisted goal by right wing Luke Bryant who found a ball bouncing around in the box and placed it into the corner of the net. Trying to capitalize on the counter attack, the Bees continued to test the Tigers defensive back line with long through-balls until one got through to Bees forward Landon Walters. Tigers center back Cesar Coronilla raced down the field to catch the Bees forward, but committed a foul resulting in a penalty kick in the 28th minute. The PK was taken and made by Bees forward Teyo Rodriguez. This wrapped up the scoring in the first half with the Tigers leading the Bees 2-1.

In the second half, the Tigers were awarded a free kick and Cristobal made a driving shot on goal. Diving to make the save, the Bees goalkeeper spilled a rebound when attacking midfielder Alan Munoz came crashing into the box and finished the play bringing the score to 3-1 in the 55th minute. Then, in the 64th minute, Cristobal Flores earned a penalty kick when fouled on a break-away chance on goal. Just three minutes later, Tigers goalkeeper Wesley Carpenter delivered his first assist of the season on a long punt that bounced over the Bees goalkeeper. Cristobal came streaking in behind and scored his third goal of the night. This wrapped up the scoring for the match with the Tigers getting the 5-1 victory.
