Tigers Roll Past Mabank 42-0
The game was cancelled just
after the fourth quarter started but the Tigers had already put up 42
unanswered points to go to 3-0 in district play. Eric Gordon threw for
a school record 5 touchdowns and ran for another in the victory which
clinched a playoff spot for the Tigers.
The Tigers did get off to a 'slow' start
as they only got 7 points in the first quarter but a heavy wind and
deferring to the second half had more to do with that than any problems the
Tigers were having. In the second quarter Jon Bauer would catch an 11
yard TD pass to start the Tigers on a 28 point which would include touchdown
passes to Rian Stubbs and Greg Stewart as well as a third Bauer touchdown
which was a scintillating throw and catch right before the end of the half.
On defense the Tigers shut the Panthers
down shutting out their second opponent on the season. The Tiger D
held Mabank to only 62 yards of total offense and added an interception by
Decorian Smith. A great performance by the defense which has gotten
better each week.
Next week will be a huge game against
Lancaster which should decide seeding for the playoffs.
