Tigers fall in opener, 47-25

For the first time in a long time, South View football played without long-time coach Randy Ledford on the sidelines tonight. Coach Ledford passed away in the spring. Unfortunately, the Tigers lost at Scotland County 47-25, but that’s 25 more points than they scored last year at home against the Scots.

The Tigers scored on the opening kickoff, but then gave up a touchdown as well about a minute later. Both teams committed a wide variety and number of penalties, which slowed the play, and the game was also halted by lightning for an hour or so after a minute and a half of play. The Tigers could have played better, but judging from most predictions, they could have played much worse against the Scots, who made it to the third round of the state playoffs last year.

The defense gave up several more big plays than fans would have liked, and the offense failed to capitalize on several missed opportunities along the way. The team and fans will hopefully have a good deal of improvements to look forward to over the rest of the season.

Next week, South View hosts the Gray’s Creek Bears at the Jungle.
