Quarterback Reese Ashworth had 39 yards passing. He also scored DeQuincy second touchdown on a 1-yard quarterback sneak late in the first quarter.

Wyatt Lavergne scored the first touchdown of the night on a long 44 yard run.

Kohen Cormier added both PAT’s to put the Tigers up 14-0. That proved to be all the Tigers would need on this night as the defense stood tall.

Koby Pool and DaCorius Griffin both had 2 catches for 15 yards while Diron Valentine had one catch for 10 yards.

Next up for the Tigers is a road contest against Welsh in Welsh Friday night at 7. p.m. Come out and give the Tigers a good crowd to cheer them onto Victory.
