Wednesday, October 14, 2009

The Marshall County Tigers broke their longest losing streak in 32 years, coming away with a huge 35-0 road win at East Hickman Friday night.

Marshall County scored 14 points in each of the first two quarters to take a commanding 28-0 halftime lead.

MCHS flung the monkey off its back in a breakout offensive performance by sophomore quarterback Trevor Carter, who went 14-23 for 257 yards and tossed 5 touchdown passes.

David Tadajewski was Carter's main target, catching 7 passes for 147 yards and two touchdowns.

Jamie Perryman also had a big game, hauling in 4 Carter passes for 81 yards and two scores.

Tiger senior tight end Jordan Anderson had a touchdown catch and finished with 2 grabs for 15 yards.

Broderick Tears had one catch for 14 yards before leaving the game with an injury.

Austin Reyes led the Tigers in rushing with 66 yards on 21 carries.

The Tiger defense stopped East Hickman's running game cold, holding the Bulldog runners to minus 11 yards on 14 carries.

The Bulldog passing game was not much better as the Tigers gave up just 79 yards on 24 attempts.

MCHS (1-6, 1-3) will host the Spring Hill Raiders (5-2, 3-1) Friday night at Preston Hopkins Field in Lewisburg.
