Tigers drop defensive battle with Falcons, look for a win at Montevideo

Morris Area/Chokio-Alberta held Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City to just one touchdown, but the Falcons didn’t let the Tigers into the endzone, in a 7-0 loss Friday, Sept. 27 on the road.     

Taylor Larson ran in a 36-yard touchdown just after halftime for the game’s only scoring. Larson rushed for 57 yards and Falcon Jordan Nelson had 54.

The Tigers were the first team this season to hold the Falcons to just one touchdown. Even in A-C-GC’s two losses, the offense put up over 20 points.

“Our defense played absolutely outstanding. They were really physical,” said Tiger coach Kevin Pope. “We outplayed them in a lot of ways, we just couldn’t get one in the endzone.”

Despite the letdown, the Tigers are ready for their next challenge at Montevideo Friday night. The ThunderHawks are 2-3 with wins over Benson and Yellow Medicine East. The Tigers are looking for their second victory.

“The kids have been great,” added Pope. “They know they’re getting better.”
