Win or Go Home Starts Thursday

An exciting regular season provided Tiger fans a lot of enjoyment watching Coach Henigan's team excel and get better every game.  Coming off of last week's thrilling win over Ennis the Tigers head into the 'real' season carrying momentum by the boatload.  Standing in their way on Thursday night will be the Seagoville Dragons.

The Dragons carry a 5-5 record into the game and are making their first playoff appearance since 1998 so they will be a hungry team looking to extend their season another week.  Seagoville's 5-5 record is deceptive as they went through a cold spell early in the year where they lost four in a row, but closed the season strong winning 3 of their last 4 with the only loss being a narrow 7-0 defeat at the hands of highly regarded Kimball.

On offense the Dragons are led by standout running back Decory King.  King was the DMN offensive player of the week this week as he ran for 248 yards in their win over Adamson last week.  King has rushed for 1046 yards on the season so he is a proven workhorse threat in the backfield.  QB Jarvis Pitts is a threat to throw the ball as he has thrown for 795 yards on the season.  His top target is Harrison Howard who is averaging just over 25 yards per catch on the season.

Seagoville's defense made strides late in the season after getting off to a slow start.  In their last four games they are only giving up 6.25 points per game as well as holding Kimball to only a touchdown.  The Dragon defense has proven they can slow down a top receiver as they held Pinkston's Alfred Wiley to only 80 yards and no touchdowns.

The Tigers will need to bring their 'A' game and avoid a letdown after last week's emotional win.  All year the Tigers have been well prepared and disciplined so expect to see more of the same.  Make the short drive to Lion Stadium and support your Tigers!!!
