After three consecutive shutouts, the varsity football Tigers finally found the endzone in Game 5. They scored their first, second, and third touchdowns of the season but still lost to Fox, 49-21, at OHS on Sept. 27. 

Hunter Iffland (12) connected with Chase Otto (12) from 13 yards out with 9:58 left in the first half for the team’s first touchdown. Less than eight minutes later, Iffland threw to Jacobi Woods (11) from 11 yards out for their second score.

“Throwing for those touchdowns felt good,” Iffland said.

With a completion percentage of 47%, Iffland threw for 126 yards, three touchdowns, two interceptions, and ran for nine yards. The leading rusher for OHS was Leon Robinson (12) with 34 yards.

The bulk of the receptions and yards went to Joey Rounds (11), who made four catches racking up 96 yards. Woods was next with two receptions, 17 yards, and one touchdown.

Even with the offensive improvement, the defense could not stop the Fox offense. The Warriors rushed for 384 yards and passed for 129 on their way to the 49-point explosion. 

Semi-happy with last week’s performance, Iffland is still not satisfied. “We can’t be content coming up on a big week like this,” he said in reference to the upcoming game at Seckman (1-4) on Oct. 4 at 7pm.
