Tigers earn draw with Falcons

It was a cool and breezy Senior Night for the Albert Lea boys’ soccer team as it hosted the Faribault Falcons Tuesday night.

The Tigers were looking to end a nearly month-long losing streak, in which they have six games and tied once.

The Falcons dominated the ball, but the Tigers had some opportunities to score. Tigers’ goalkeeper Jose DeLeon made some fantastic plays on the ball to keep the game scoreless, as neither team was able to push across a run during the 80 minutes of regulation or the two five-minute extra time periods to end in a 0-0 tie.
