October 18, 2013  TIGERS  56  Hayti  0
The Tigers and Indians met on a cool fall night at Hopke
Field, meeting for the 77th installment of what has become known as
“The Battle of the Bootheel”.  The
Tigers, wearing their all red home unis, stormed out to a huge early lead (33-0
after 1 quarter), and coasted to an easy 56-0 victory.  A whole different game 
from when the
two teams met up last year, with the Tigers barely winning 13-6 in a game where
it was difficult to tell who was the better team.  No doubt this year.  The 
Tiger win increases their lead in the series to 54-20-3.
With all due respect to my Hayti friends, it was total
domination by the Tigers in every aspect of the game.  The Tigers were far 
superior on offense, defense, and in
special teams.  
In lieu of a lengthy summary, I will just summarize the
scoring and give some interesting stats.

A few interesting facts:
The Tigers scored 33 points in the last 8:04 of the 1st quarter.
Big special teams plays:  Jamal Johnson had an amazing 69 yard punt return, 
being dragged down at the 1 yard line (he would score the TD on the next play); 
 Colt Callens booted a 55 yard punt
which turned to the left and was downed at the 1 yardline (he and Landon
Stricklin would tackle the Indian runner for a safety on the next play); and
Abdul Johnson scored on the 1st play of the second half, returning
the kickoff 79 yards for the TD.  
Passing:  Not
great percentages, but still pretty productive as Grissom completed 4 of 10,
but foe 141 yards and 2 TDs!  Peyton Faulkner only completed 1 of his 4 
attempts, but it was a 43 yard
TD strike to Abdul Johnson.
Speaking of Abdul…he scored 3 TDs:  the aforementioned 43 yard reception; a 79 
yard kickoff
return; and a 34 yard INT return.  He also had another INT in the endzone, 
thwarting the Indians only real
threat to score!  Great game Abdul!
Another Johnson shined tonight, too…Jamal!  Jamal had 2 TDs, a 56 yard TD 
and a 1 yard run following his scintillating 69 yard punt return!  Jamal also 
played amazing on defense,
stifling the Indians main receiving threat, holding him to 3 catches for only 8
Darrell Monroe…he’s pretty good!  ;-)  4 carries
for 128 yards and 2 TDs; 2 catches for 86 yards and a TD.  He also added  5 
solo tackles, 3 assists, 1 tackle for loss, I batted pass
and an INT.  He also helped Jamal
cover the Indians main receiving threat!
Colt Callens had the one simply amazing punt that was downed
at the 1 yard line, and then combined with Landon Stricklin to score the
safety.  Colt also had 5 assists, 2
TFL, a sack and a batted pass.  Landon had 3 tackles, 4 assists, 2 sacks, and 
2.5 TFL.
Joey Middleton had 3 solos, 7 assists and a TFL.
Peyton Faulkner had 4 solos and a TFL.  He also rushed for 29 yards on 3
carries and threw a 43 yard TD pass!
Hunter Trevathan had 3 carries for 28 yards and 1
reception.  Hunter continued his
special teams dominance tonight, and had 1 tackle and 2 assists on
Scotty Adams had an interception.  Grant Marshall had 2 tackles, 2 assists and 
a TFL.
TIGERS v. INDIANS:  Strangely, this was the 25th time in history that the Tigers
shut out the Indians and won.  The
teams have also tied 0-0…twice!  So, out of the Tigers 54 wins over the 
Indians, 25 of them were
The Tiger win pushes their season record to 6-1.  The Tigers will make the long 
drive to
Ste. Genevieve Friday night, looking to avenge last years heartbreaking 20-21
loss, as they face the tough Dragons.  I’m hoping to see a lot of Tigers fans 
in Ste. Gen. Friday night.
