Tigers nipped by Eagles, 24-21

By TONI WALKER

DIANA – In a game with playoff seeding implications, Daingerfield’s stingy defense headed to Diana to face a high-powered New Diana. At the end of a relatively low-scoring between two teams who consistently put up 40 or more points in a game, the Eagles ended up on top, 24-21.

In a game that many expected to be filled with an offensive fireworks show, both teams came out rather flat, with Diana punting four plays after the opening kickoff and Daingerfield missing a field goal to end their first drive. After Diana again punted, Daingerfield finally seemed to show some life. After a 10 yard run by Daingerfield’s Chris Castleberry and an eight yard run by Zaylon Jeter, quarterback Jakauri Woods hooked up with Castleberry on a 25 yard reception before Woods was able to run the ball in from the 19 yard line to put the Tigers ahead, 7-0, at the end of the first quarter.

Daingerfield swats Hornets, moves to 3-0 in district play

By TONI WALKER

HOOKS – Daingerfield continues rolling in district play, as the Tigers defeated the Hooks Hornets on Oct. 20 to improve to 3-0 in district and 4-3 on the season.

For the second week in a row, the Daingerfield Tiger defense has shut out the opposition in the second half to pull away from Hooks and DeKalb. Meanwhile, the offense has scored 92 points over those last two games. Over three district games, the Tigers have outscored their opponents 147-40.

In typical Tiger fashion, Daingerfield won the toss and deferred to the second half. The Hornets opening drive stalled after gaining only six yards, and Daingerfield’s offense was quickly on the field. Neither team seemed too interested in lighting up the scoreboard, as the Tigers first drive also stalled out, followed by another Hooks punt.

Mustangs fall to Jefferson, 42-22

By RICK COLEGROVE

HUGHES SPRINGS -- That’s why they play the game. That’s the way the ball bounces. They left it all out on the field.

The sport clichés are out there and most have heard them all. But to spare you anymore clichés, this is the last one for this article. The Mustangs only lost that game on the scoreboard.

Truth be told, that is not necessarily a cliché, because it is true. Stats do not lie; more so they paint a picture.

The Mustangs were on the losing end of the final score, 42-22, but with 6 turnovers on the night, Mustang faithful can’t help but wonder how different the outcome would have been without even two or three of those turnovers.

The game began with much promise and hope. Senior Zack Pilgrim snagged an interception and returned it deep into Jefferson Bulldog territory, and the Hughes Springs squad was in business. This gave hope of a quick score on a Jefferson team that was blowing out opponents as of late.

Daingerfield scores 51, topples DeKalb for second district win

By TONI WALKER

DAINGERFIELD – On a warm October evening, Daingerfield welcomed the DeKalb Bears to town. Friday the 13 proved lucky for the home team, as the Tigers improved to 2-0 in district with a 51-21 win over the Bears.

After winning the coin toss and deferring to the second half, the Tiger defense stopped the Bears on three plays. Less than two minutes later, the Tigers lit up the scoreboard after a 21-yard touchdown run by Trodarius Lynn. Another defensive stop gave the Tigers an opportunity to widen the gap, which they did on a 17-yard touchdown run by freshman Zaylon Jeter. That score gave the Tigers a 16-0 advantage at the end of the first quarter of play.
