“They were ready and we weren’t,” said head coach Josh McLendon. “We came out with no enthusiasm.”

Harper Vinson scored the first touchdown for the Tigers, but another player stepped up in the second half.

“Jerome Watkins scored our last two touchdowns,” McLendon said. “He really took the team on his back in the second half.”

Game time is set for 5:30 p.m. in Millbrook.
