“The Tigers controlled the line of scrimmage the whole night. Our line did a great job, especially on our pass blocking. The team’s focus was great, we had very few penalties and we were able to draw them off sides four times slowing down the Bulldog defensive front. Coach Derek Jolley is doing a great job calling the offense, We had a very balanced attack mixing up the run with the pass. We have a big game coming up Friday night against the Snake River Panthers at home and we are looking to making it a big win for the Tigers to carry us into conference play,” coach Jeff Duffin said.
