The Mansfield seventh grade Tigers have done it again. For their second scheduled game of the season, the Tigers have secured another win. With a final score of 20-0 in their game against the Lavaca Golden Arrows, this group of 16 is definitely going places and from the look of their scorecard, that place is up.

Trey Powell

The Tigers took their defense to the gridiron first last night showing the Golden Arrows that hard-hitting is a way of life in Tiger football. Mansfield stuffed Lavaca on their opening drive giving the Tiger offense the opportunity to do what they do best…….score. On Mansfield’s first drive they were able to snap the Golden Arrow defense as Jeremy Strozier took a quarterback keeper around the corner to light up the scoreboard. The Tigers defense took charge again forcing a Lavaca punt allowing the Mansfield offense to take control on the 44-yard line. Quarterback Jeremy Strozier then hit Brandon Raynor with a quick pass allowing Raynor to scream downfield for a touchdown. At the half, the Mansfield seventh grade Tigers led Lavaca 14-0.

The Tigers started off the second half rough with a fumble allowing the Golden Arrows to take over, but that was the last of Lavaca’s success on the field. Lead by Brandon Raynor, Austin Ruiz, Boston Elmore, and Zach Chapman, the Mansfield defense then pummeled the Golden Arrows for the rest of the game. With 7:50 left in the game, Boston Elmore, Jeremy Strozier, and Leland Powell ate up the field with prolific runs setting up Trey Powell for the go-ahead score putting the Tigers up 20-0. James Olinghouse sealed the deal for Mansfield as he recovered a Lavaca fumble with just a minute left in the game sending the Tigers to victory row 20-0.

To simply state that they are 2-0 would be undercutting their success as they have shown an almost perfect balance on offense and defense in their victories over Waldron and Lavaca. Offensively the Tigers have scored 44 points while holding their opponents to a mere 14 points. The Mansfield seventh grade Tigers will put their undefeated record on the line on September 19 at 5:30 p.m. when they host the Paris Eagles.
