For the 7th & final time this year, the 9th Grey Tigers boarded a yellow charter for an away game in hopes of a triumphant victory & happy ending to the season. Instead, they ran into a loaded Liberty Hill 9th grade team that unleashed a buzz-saw with the legendary slot-T offense & a hard-hitting, pad-popping defense.
Before the Tigers knew what hit them, the Panthers scored quickly & then capitalized on 3 fumbles & an interception in the 1st quarter to jump out to a commanding 27-0 lead.
The out numbered & out manned Tigers licked their wounds at halftime & did their best to slow down the Panthers during the 2nd half, but it was too little, too late. There was not many highlights for the Tigers on the night, but the defense had an interception, made a 4th down stop & a fumble recovery; no names were reported at press time.
Colton Schlickeisen threw a 38 yard TD pass to Aveyn Sarinana & Nathan Hunt hauled in a 2-point conversion pass. Darrin Watkins, Brayden Bates, Hunter Warren, Jaylen Flores, Michael Tovar, Jason Blank, Caden Gonzales, & Jeremiah Storie all played hard for the Tigers.
The 23 players who finished out the year for the Grey should be commended for their efforts throughout the season. The 9th Grey Tigers finished 3-7 on the season.
