The Tigers took the 7-0 victory over the Eagles. The Tigers scored on a first quarter one yard touchdown pass from Carson Rainwater to Quentin Pharris. Nolan Schrader tacked on the extra point to put the Tigers up 7-0. That would be all the scoring the Tigers would need on this night as the Defense stood strong and kept Rosepine off the endzone all night.
