With 9 minutes left in the game, Will Evans had an 8 yard rushing touchdown to put the Tigers up 35-28. In the final minutes of the game, the BV defense came up big with an interception by Brody Jacobsen and later a sack and forced fumble by Max Molitor to seal the game.

The Tiger’s slogan for this year is “Unfinished Business” after the loss in the State Championship last season.
