The Mansfield Little League Tigers held their Homecoming festivities on Saturday, September 28th as they played the West Fork Tigers for a Big Cat competition. It was a tale of two Tigers as Red and White clashed with Black and Gold. Only one Tiger could reign supreme and Mansfield took that challenge seriously.

The Mansfield 3rd and 4th grade started the night off with a 30-0 rout of West Fork. The Tigers struck early and often with Colton Nelson, Colton Moore, Trevin Hattabaugh, and Lincoln Allison eating up yards and touchdowns throughout the game. It was a pass, pitch, and run offensive showcase that kept the scoreboard lights hot. Defensively, Mansfield clawed their way into the West Fork backfield and shut down every attempt made by players wearing black and gold. The 3rd and 4th grade Tiger defense ended up issuing their second shutout of the season.

The Tigers 5th and 6th grade set out to make a point that they are a head above the rest as they ran over West Fork dominating with a 38-16 victory. Dawson Robinson exploded out of the backfield right off the bat to put the Tigers on the board and set the game up from there. The Tigers offense was firing on all cylinders as Ethan Martin, Keaton Oliver, Cordell Stone, Dominic Shores, and James Bausley all contributed to Mansfield’s ground and pound attack.

Cooper Edwards fired a laser pass to Junior Cash for a touchdown to prove to opponents that Mansfield is very capable of a balanced offense. Not to be outdone, the Mansfield defense cut through West Forks offense like a hot knife through butter putting pressure on the black and gold Tigers all night. It was the beef upfront on the D-Line that shut down West Forks attempts at making it a game.

Ethan Martin

The Mansfield Little League Tigers were able to get all players on both teams plenty of playing time Saturday night. This will help give the Tigers more experience and depth as Mansfield enters the second half of the WCFL season. Mansfield will host the Lavaca Golden Arrows on Saturday, October 5th with games starting at 6 p.m. The Tigers will also be celebrating 6th Grade appreciation night on October 5th as well.
