Tigers lose to lions

By Scott Womack
TCNS correspondent

KOUNTZE — With the Tigers coming off a bye week and the Lions coming off a close loss to Hemphill, the Tigers were primed for their first victory of the season, but the Lions had other plans.

The tone for the game was set on the opening kickoff, when a mishandled kick set up the Tigers offense at their own 6-yard line. A fumble and quick score gave the Lions an early 7-0 lead, and a bad snap on a punt attempt recovered by the Lions in the end zone put the Tigers in a 14-0 hole with just 6 minutes off the clock.

The fortunes for the Tigers did not improve as turnovers and inability to move the ball past the 50-yard line ultimately gave the Lions a short field for the duration of the game.

Trailing by 30 at halftime, the Tigers hoped to correct the mistakes and improve in the second half, unfortunately the Lions continued to control the game in all phases and cruised to a 47-0 victory.

The Tigers return home Friday as they face the undefeated Newton Eagles. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
