Tigers Tame Cardinals 29-7
By N3 Sports Team
Grant went to 2-0 on the year and 1-0 in conference play with a solid 28-7 victory over Big Rapids. The Tigers found the endzone in every quarter taking a 14-7 lead into the locker room courtesy of a pair of touchdown runs by Rylee Schultz then held the Cardinals scoreless the rest of the way while racking up two more TD’s.
It was Jared Evans who found paydirt for both second half scores and Ian Francisco put the icing on the cake when he...
...blocked a Cardinal punt in the endzone for a safety. Angel Ochoa knocked 3 of 4 conversion attempts through the uprights to give him 10 on the season.
The Tigers put together an outstanding defensive effort once again and has allowed just 13 points in their two wins.
“The victory was bittersweet due to the loss of our lineman Brendan Atwood, who suffered a broken leg in the second quarter,” said Tiger Head Coach Darren Geraghty. “We wish Brendan a full and speedy recovery.”
The Tigers will be trying to begin the season 3-0 as they host Central Montcalm in conference play Friday night. The Hornets are 0-2 with losses to Morley Stanwood and Tri- County.
