Tigers tame Lions in defensive tilt

Wednesday, September 19, 2007


The Marshall County Tigers have won their last two games the old fashioned way, with a stout defense and a knack for coming up with big plays at the most opportune times.

The Tigers are giving up just 10.3 points per game in the early season. On Friday night at Preston Hopkins Field they allowed just three to the Columbia Central Lions in a hard fought 14-3 win.

"We worked hard all week to stop their spread offense and our defense played the best we could play together tonight," said senior defensive line anchor Scotty Hargrove after the game.

The Lions drove deep into scoring position three times in the ballgame and came away with just a lone 34- yard field goal by Robert Harris for Central's three points.
