The football tigers ended their regular season on Friday, Oct. 25 with a loss to the Mehlville Panthers 51-0, bringing their record to 1-8. They have lost eight straight games since a 3-0 win against Hazelwood West that was stopped in the second quarter of the season opener.

This week the Tigers play in the playoff opener, the first real opportunity to stop the losing streak and put a W in the win column against the Parkway South Patriots, who have a record of 0-9.

The Tigers, being the fourth seed in the playoff bracket, will get to play the opening playoff game at OHS on Friday, Nov. 1 at 7 p.m. 

“I think this is a good way to host another game and a good opportunity to play against our level of teams,” OHS activities director Becky Czuppon said, “We are very well matched against each other.” 

The Tigers have not played the Patriots this season. But with a lot of games against common opponents everyone on the coaching staff thinks they have a good idea of what the Patriots will bring to the field. 

“We are ready to take on Parkway,” head coach Arlee Conners said “After the showing in the rivalry game I would hope the boys are going to come out with more fight. This is a do or die game for us and them so both teams are going to come out fighting,”
