After losing their first seven games, the varsity football team was not feeling good about themselves, but preparing for the homecoming game (Oct. 7) against Seckman, which had the same record as them, gave a little hope

The tigers came out with a bit more confidence and a better temperament than they have showed in the previous games, and it clearly showed a great result, as the tigers won 42-0.

“We definitely came with confidence, it’s all about confidence,” said Kobe Dozier (11), “We played hard and executed. The chemistry was there and now we just have to take it over to Mehlville and then the playoffs, and just keep it rolling from there.”

Consistently, the defense played well and were the biggest contributors to the tigers win.

“Defense overall was big,” said head coach Arlee Conners, “They put us in a good position all night long, they definitely brought us to the forefront.”

In the first quarter, Jordan Jost (11) scored a touchdown, putting the tigers on the board 7-0. And then later scoring another touchdown, putting tigers up 14-0. In the second half, Connor Bartow (12) scored two touchdowns helping the tigers win 42-0.

“This game went really good. Everyone executed and did their jobs like they were supposed to, and we got a victory in the end.” said Bartow.
