Soccer state championship: Live updates

9:10 p.m. — The Catamounts are state champions. Final score: Dalton 5, Southeast 0. Check back later for more on the match and read Saturday's edition of The Daily Citizen for a full report.

8:50 p.m. — A little more than 17 minutes to play, and senior striker Ramiro Huitanda puts the Cats up 5-0 with his 51st goal this season.

8:26 p.m. — Second half is under way.

8:13 p.m. — Dalton leads 4-0 at halftime. Southeast has no shots on goal, while Dalton has taken 12. The Raiders gave up a goal early, which was obviously one of the worst things that could happen to an underdog facing an undefeated opponent. Southeast will need to make something happen quickly in the second half 

7:57 p.m. — Dalton leads 4-0, with the latest goal a shot from Daniel Palacios. He was set up by a corner kick from Eder Mora. Southeast has yet to take a shot on goal with the match closing in on halftime.

7:51 p.m. — It's now 3-0 Dalton. Daniel Palacios scores seconds after an attack came up empty. The Catamounts have done a good job pursuing second shots quickly this season and have cleaned up many goals successfully as a result.

7:40 p.m. — Dalton strikes again, this time on a goal from center midfielder Eder Mora, who was set up by Ryan Czyz's corner kick. Barragan sent the ball further out into the field of play, though, rather than setting up a cross in front of the net as might have been expected.

7:32 p.m. — That did not take long. Dalton's Salvador Rodriguez sends a rainbow of a shot in from 40 yards out over Southeast goalkeeper Abel Mendiola's head for a 1-0 lead.

7:30 p.m. — Match is under way. Although Southeast has been on the road the entire state tournament, the Raiders are the home team for this match. Seeing as they're playing in Carrollton, you can take that for what it's worth.

7:10 p.m. — Dalton and Southeast are both on the field warming up now for their 7:30 kickoff. This will be the fourth meeting between the two teams this season, and the Catamounts have outscored the Raiders 8-1 in sweeping a pair of regular-season matches and the Region 7-4A tournament semifinal.

    Northwest Whitfield High School’s baseball team has been successful this season. But at the same time, no one said success would be easy.
    Several times this year, the Bruins have fallen behind early in the first few innings before answering with a rally to ensure the wins keep coming. On Friday, that formula delivered a Sub-region 7B-4A championship for the second year in a row.

    Dalton High School baseball coach Shane Ramsey only needed one word to sum up what he expects from this week’s three-game series with Sub-region 7B-4A foe and intracounty rival Northwest Whitfield.
    “Intensity,” he said. “If you can’t get up for this series, then why are you playing?”

  • Prep Roundup: Dalton golf teams in form at Fields Ferry

    Even in wet and muddy conditions, both the Dalton High School boys and girls golf teams are sharpening their games at the right time.
    With the Region 7-4A tournament scheduled in two weeks, both the Catamounts and the Lady Cats finished second during play at the Fields Ferry Invitational in Calhoun on Monday. Despite the soggy conditions, Dalton’s Jacob Brown tied for medalist honors with a 2-over par 74 to lead the Cats to a 313 combined score in the six-play, four-score format.

  • Wrestler of the year 2014 2 mlh.jpg All-Area Wrestling Team and Wrestler of the Year: Winning another title was the only goal for Wheeler

    When Dalton High School wrestler Sidney Wheeler won a state title for the first time two years ago as a sophomore, he admitted he became a little complacent about what it would take to replicate the feat — perhaps not noticeably so to most observers, but enough to take success for granted. Wheeler believed it a matter of course that he would win state again, and he thought the second title would simply be the middle child in a high school three-peat.
