The Tigers traveled to Hardin Friday looking for their first win of the season but fell short.

The team played a solid first half of defense, giving up an opening drive touchdown and a last second touchdown to the Hornets just before halftime. The Tigers were able to force 2 fumbles that were recovered by the defense.

However, the Tiger offense was never able to get on track and headed into the locker room with a 14-0 deficit.

The third quarter saw the defense hold the Hornets to no points, but a bad snap on a punt attempt by the Tigers in their own end zone gave a 2-point safety to the Hornets.

By the fourth quarter, the Hornets were seemingly scoring at will against a tired defense. The Tigers lone score came from a 70-yard touchdown run by Jammale Johnson, and with the 2-point run, the Tigers ended the game with a 36-8 loss.

Coach Shawn Stout told the team after, they need to keep working and not to give up on themselves.

The Tigers will be on the road again this week as they travel to West Sabine for a battle of the Tigers. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
