The Many Tigers lost an absolute heartbreaker to the Welsh Greyhounds 28-21 during the LHSAA 2A semifinal held on November 30 at John Curtis Tiger Stadium in Many.

The loss puts an end to the season which players, coaches, and local fans would end with a championship in the Super Dome this weekend.

The team put up an amazing 15-2 record, with its only losses were against a higher classification opponent, North Desoto, and Welsh, who also defeated the Tigers last year during the same leg of the playoffs.

Many kicked off to Welsh to start the game, and Austyn Benoit quickly put up a fiveyard rushing touchdown which had the Tigers trailing early by seven points.

Tobias Williams named Rising Star

Rising Star Tobias Williams II has lots of attitude...a good, positive attitude. He attributes it to the examples set for him by his family, his high school football coach, and his church family.

“I am a reflection of my family,” Tobias said. “It’s important to me that I set a good example for others.”

The oldest of five children, Tobias is the son of Tobias and Krisha Williams of Many. His mother teaches social studies and science at Many Junior High. His dad works on a land rig in West Texas.

Something happened in his family several years ago that made a lifelong impression on Tobias. He began seeing people, events, challenges and life differently. That’s because his maternal grandmother, Cloteal Polk of Natchitoches, moved in with Tobias’s family where she spent her last year of life.

The Many Tigers are making the most of their deep run into the LHSAA Class 2A playoffs by most recently shutting out Vidalia 35-0 in the quarterfinals and stomping Rayville 53-32 in the second round. Their wins have advanced them to their third straight semi-final game against Welsh at John Curtis Tiger Stadium on November 30.

Vidalia was no match for the Tigers rushing offense, with Terrence Williams rushing 12 times for 237 yards and Ni’Kendrick Carter with seven carries for 140 yards. They combined for two touchdowns each in the game.

Many scored two touchdowns within one minute halfway through the first quarter for a 14-0 lead. Near the end of the quarter they’d see another touchdown to make the score 21-0.

Quarterback Zequarrios “Cadillac” Rhone called his own number for the second quarter’s touchdown, while Terrence Williams put the final touchdown of the night on the board in the third quarter.

Holiday favorite “Christmas Vacation” to screen

The comic misadventures of the beleaguered Griswold family continue in “National Lampoon Christmas Vacation” playing at the Many Community Center on Saturday, December 1 at 7 p.m.

The movie is free as always. It’s part of the Movies in Many program sponsored by the Town of Many Cultural District Advisory Committee, Mayor Ken Freeman, and the Town of Many.

Concessions are available for only $1 each.

America’s most dedicated dad, Chevy Chase is determined to stay at home to create “the most fun-filled old-fashioned family Christmas ever” -- but life has a particular way of throwing wet logs on Clark Griswold’s fire.

Suburban family man Clark Griswold gets all a-dither about a family holiday. As is his sentimental nature, he puts too much emphasis on the production of it. He wants nothing less than a “fun, old-fashioned, family Christmas.”
