The THS Boys Tigers soccer team pose with attitude before their district tournament.

The Taos Tigers capped off their abbreviated 2021 season on Tuesday night with a loss to rival Los Alamos in the first round (Quarterfinals) of the District 4A State Tournament. Los Alamos will advance to the Semifinals against Albuquerque Academy on Thursday (April 8).

The loss was the first of the season for the Tigers, who outscored their opponents 38-3 on the season. The obvious disappointment was present on the faces of the players as they exited the pitch at Eco Park, their sole defeat coming at the worst possible time.

However, the boys did win the District title this year and had several games end with a 10-0 victory. The girls got off to a rough start, but showed grit and determination, ending their season with a 3-3-1 record.

After an uncertain season, the boys and girls teams got out on that pitch and gave their all. For both teams, the season ended too soon, but there is no doubt their perseverance will carry them through to another dominant season next year.
