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.

Tigers take “Morris County Championship” over Pewitt, 56-6

By TONI WALKER

OMAHA – More than simply district rivals, the Daingerfield Tigers and Pewitt Brahmas are also inter-county rivals, as well. So when the two met on the football field, it seemed only fitting to dub the game the “Morris County Championship.” The game also served as the Tigers’ first district action for 2017 following their bye-week and a rough pre-district schedule that left them with a 1-3 record.

On what served as the “Pink-Out” night where Brahma fans came decked out in pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the two teams took the field for the coin toss, which the home town Brahmas won, then elected to defer until the second half. That was basically the only win on the night for the Brahmas, as they quickly fell behind a rested Daingerfield team who never let up.

Daingerfield drops heartbreaker to White Oak, 29-28

By TONI WALKER

DAINGERFIELD – The Daingerfield Tigers rounded out their non-district schedule on Sept. 22, welcoming White Oak to Mickey Mayne Tiger Stadium. After jumping out by 14 at halftime, the Tigers ended up dropping a heartbreaker, 29-28, to the visiting Roughnecks.

The Tigers won the coin toss and elected to defer. After Bello’s 60 yard kickoff was returned for 22 yards by White Oak, the Tigers’ defense continued where they left off the previous week, notching a seven yard sack by DK Lewis before Jakauri Wood picked off a White Oak pass for the first turnover of the game. The offense was unable to capitalize, going four and out on their first series. Quarterback Reggie Jeter punted the ball back to White Oak, dropping them at their own 17 yard line.

Mustangs tame Brahmas, improve to 3-0

OMAHA -- With two games already in the books for the Hughes Springs Mustang football team, the squad took to the road and squared off against the Paul Pewitt Brahmas. The Mustangs delivered a knockout punch in the third quarter, and then it was literally “lights out” following a fourth quarter defensive stop with Hughes Springs holding on for a 22-12 win. With the win, Hughes Springs improves to 3-0 on the season.

Pewitt has had a run based offense in the past. A few years ago the Brahmas converted to more of a pass-oriented offense. This past Friday, the Mustangs made sure there was no running to be had, holding the home team to negative five yards rushing on the night. The Brahmas were able to find soft spots in the secondary at times, and that led to two touchdowns and making the game and score closer than it actually was.

Tigers crown royalty, notch first win of 2017

By TONI WALKER

DAINGERFIELD – On the night when Daingerfield High School held their annual homecoming festivities, the Tigers played like royalty in a 38-7 rout of New Boston.

After quarterback Reggie Jeter was crowned King alongside Queen Monorra Sok, Jeter led his team into battle, looking for their first win of the season.

One of the Tigers’ few losses of the night came on the opening coin toss, which New Boston won, then deferred. The opening kickoff gave the Tigers the ball on their own 35 yard line, and Jeter went to work. Mixing in a healthy dose of passes along with a solid running game, the Tigers quickly marched 70 yards to open the scoring. The drive was capped by Jeter’s 10-yard run, which stretched out to break the plane of the goal line. Jeter’s score gave the Tigers a 6-0 lead, one that would never be threatened.
