Tigers destroy Cottage Hill, 50-20

The Luverne Tigers massed 578 yards of total offense as they destroyed the Cottage Hill Warriors last Friday night in Glenn Daniel Stadium, 50-20. The game was not as close as it seemed as the Warriors scored two late fourth quarter touchdowns against Tiger subs.

The Tigers scored 2 first quarter TDs and a safety for a 14 point lead. The TDs came on a 1 yard run by Lance Brooks and a 29 yard run by Ladorian Jackson; both PATs were missed, but a bad snap for a safety gave the Tigers a 14-point lead.

The first Tiger score of the second quarter came on a 57-yard pass from quarterback Monterio May to Ryan McGhee; the PAT was kicked by Cody Chrzastek. Later, Ladorian Jackson broke loose on his second TD scamper on a 29 yard run. Chrzastek added the PAT. The last Tiger TD of the first half came on a 52 yard by fullback Seth Wood, who had a 60-yarder called back in the first quarter. The PAT was missed, but the final points of the first half came from the toe of Cody Chrzastek as he booted a 29 yard field goal.

The Warriors added a TD midway through the second quarter on a 26 yard pass and run.

The Luverne Tigers scored two second-half touchdowns, with the first one coming on a long run of 75 yards by Lance Brooks. Chrzastek added the PAT. The final TD came on a 1-yard run by Seth Wood, but the PAT was missed. Even so, the Tigers demolished the Warriors 50-20 for the Tigers’ sixth straight win.

For the night, Lance Brooks had 125 yards on 8 carries; Seth Wood had 119 yards on 10 carries, and Ryan McGhee had 52 yards on 3 carries.

Monterio May was 3 of 6 passing for 161 yards and one TD.

This week, the Tigers travel to Brewton to take on the undefeated and Class 3A number one ranked T.R. Miller Tigers. Game time is 7 p.m.
