Business: Finished

After a six year wait, the Many Tigers have climbed back on top of the Class 2A mountain after a resounding 16-13 win over the Kinder Yellowjackets on December 27.

“We knew coming here that it was going to be a dogfight,” said Many Head Coach Jess Curtis. “You have to be able to make one more play than those guys and you can’t blink. I don’t think those guys did tonight.”

The Tigers were just not going to be denied that night. Outside of a 59 yard rush for a touchdown, the Tiger defense held Kinder to 46 yards rushing on 22 carries. Many held Kinder to under 200 yards of total offense, with two interceptions.
