Tigers to bout with Lions

Published 11:59 pm Thursday, October 1, 2009

Straughn is looking for a turnover-less game tonight as the Tigers host Central-Hayneville for homecoming.

Last week for the second straight game, Straughn’s offense was hampered by the turnover bug at Opp, resulting in a 20-7 loss.

Although the Tigers out-gained Opp offensively, 222 yards to 177 yards, Straughn turned the ball over five times while Opp never turned it over.

In its previous game, a 27-0 loss to Bayside Academy, Straughn turned the ball over seven times.

Tonight, the Tigers (2-3, 2-1 in Class 3A, Region 1) will host Central-Hayneville. The visiting Lions have not earned a win this season.
