On a day honoring Georgetown's 1991 and 2001 national championship teams, the Tigers were in control of this one the whole way. Jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead and led 21-7 at halftime. Looked like it might be 28-7 on a pick-6 just before half but the play was wiped out by a roughing call that knocked the Hawks QB out of the game. Georgetown QB Kaelin Ammons went out earlier in the half with a knee.
Second half - as expected with both starting QBs out - was mostly defense. Shorter scored very late to make it mildly interesting but the Tigers recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock in the victory formation.
Tigers defense came up huge for the third straight week, holding Shorter - who had averaged nearly 500 yards rushing per game - to just over 200. To this unbiased observer
, former Mason County standout Jackson Tolle had a big game (4 former Royals in uniform today).
G'town TDs came on a 79-yard pass from Ammons to Chris Gohman, a Jesse Gilham 4-yard run, and a 1-yard Blake Naylor run.
Tigers are away next week at Kentucky Christian.
Finally, I would be remiss if I neglected to thank Beverlybubba for the free ticket.
