Tigers Falter In Waxahachie
A slow start and too many mistakes were too much for the
Tigers to come back from on Friday as they fell to Waxahachie 23-22.
The Indians jumped out to a quick 10-0 lead but the Tigers fought back
getting their first points when Rian Stubbs caught a 10 yard pass from Eric
Gordon, but the Tigers went for two and failed to convert. The Tigers
would take the lead 13-10 going into halftime after Brannon Watson caught a
12 yard pass from Gordon.
In the second half the Tigers would extend the lead
to 16-10 on a Kris Perez field goal, but Marquis Dansby would score the
first of his two touchdowns on the night to reclaim the lead for the
Indians. Gordon would run in for a touchdown to briefly put the Tigers
back on top but Dansby would deliver the game winning touchdown for the
Indians minutes later.
The Tigers had four turnovers and 8 penalties for 70 yards which hurt their
cause, but ultimately this game is merely a learning experience for the
district season still to come. The Tigers will look to get momentum
back on their side next week at home against Waco University.
