The Tigers defeated the Blue Valley Southwest Timberwolves 56 – 0 in the Tigers’ first official away game of the football season.
The game was played in BV’s backyard, but the Timberwolves were on the home side for the first time in their history. The game began at 7 p.m. on Friday night, but thunderstorms postponed it until 3 p.m. Saturday just over two minutes into the second quarter. At that point, the Tigers were ahead 35 – 0.
The opening kickoff was returned by senior Bryant Reber to the Timberwolves’ 34 yardline. The Tigers quickly converted the opportunity with a touchdown run by junior Justin Fulks who scored his first of two rushing touchdowns of the night.
Following an interception by Reber, the Tigers punched it into the end-zone on a short yardage run by quarterback, junior Kyle Zimmerman.
On the Timberwolves’ ensuing possession they turned the ball over for the second time on a fumble returned for a touchdown by defensive end, senior Chris Daschke, giving the Tigers a 21 – 0 lead.
Before the game was postponed for the night, the Tigers struck again two more times on scoring plays of more than 50 yards. The two plays came on a run by Fulks and on Zimmerman’s first of three touchdown passes, this one with senior Jacob McDermott on the receiving end.
On Saturday, Zimmerman threw two touchdown passes to receiver, senior Paul DeBey putting the Tigers up 49 – 0 heading into the half.
In the second half running back, junior Matt Floyd scored a rushing touchdown for the Tigers. The play was the last score of the day, putting the Tigers up 56 – 0 in their first-ever game against BVSW.
