Tigers take out...

By Daniel Jones

A week after a big loss to North Desoto, the Many Tigers returned to the field on September 21 and took the fight to the Union Parish Farmers, defeating them 33-14.

Following an exciting entrance featuring the roar and motorcycles and spectacle of fireworks, Many won the coin toss to defer to the second half.

Union received to open up the game and received some help on the first play of the game due to a Tiger face mask penalty. The Farmers worked their way down the field to score, putting them ahead 6-0.

Many’s offense didn’t do as well during their first possession, with Trey Jones eventually punting the ball away with it landing on the 35-yard line. The Farmers didn’t have the ball long before Brady Meshell came up with the ball for a turnover.
