The Many Tigers faced the determined Avoyelles Mustangs on Friday, December 3 and experienced the greatest threat to the repetition of last year’s state championship season. By the end of the game, the Tigers outlasted the Mustangs 40-38 to make it to their second championship game in as many years.

As usual, the strong running game of the Tigers proved nearly unstoppable, with senior London Williams putting 12 carries for 205 yards and five touchdowns on his already impressive season stats. Right behind him was sophomore Jeremiah James with 13 carries for 127 total yards.

Quarterback Tackett Curtis had one completion on three pass attempts for 21 yards and a touchdown. Senior Jack Deville caught the one completion for the touchdown.

On defense, Curtis had 13 solo tackles and five assists. Also of note was Swazy Carheel’s 13 total tackles, Keaton Montgomery’s 15 tackles, and Jayvion Smart’s six.

Jamarlyn Garner, a junior, came up with one interception during the game.

Near the start of the game, Avoyelles turned the ball over on downs on their own 33-yard line, which set Williams up for his first touchdown run of the night. A failed attempt left Many up 6-0.

Avoyelles answered back later on in the quarter when Travon Prater scored on a 20-yard run. A two-point conversion gave the Mustangs the lead 8-6.

Many’s first and only passing completion of the game was scored near the end of the first quarter to put the score up 12-8.

Later, with around five minutes left in the first half, Avoyelles scored and left Many behind at the half 22-20.

The Mustangs kicked off to Many to begin the second half. London Williams scored a 10 yard rushing TD and two-point conversion both to give Many the lead. Later on, they extended the lead to 34-22.

Avoyelles kept fighting, but didn’t come away with the win. When the dust settled, Many won 40-38 and is currently preparing for this week’s trip to the Super Dome in New Orleans.
