W-WMS Tigers split last two games; playoffs start Oct. 4

The Washington-Wilkes Middle School Tiger football team went 1-1 in their last two games, losing to Thomson and then bouncing back to demolish the Lincoln County Red Devils.

On August 20, the young Tigers hosted the Thomson Bulldogs and although the Tigers played tough, they had too many turnovers, six bad snaps, three fumbles, and two interceptions. The Bulldogs scored twice off those turnovers and the Tiger offense gave up a safety. The final score of the game was 30-0.

On August 27, the Tigers hosted the Lincoln County Red Devils. “The Tigers played a great game against the Devils,” Coach Tommy Saggus said. “The defense gave up only one first down. and really played well.” The offense had several good drives, Saggus added, and took a lot of time off the clock. The final score was 35-0.

The Tigers season record is 4-2 and the team will now enter the league playoffs which start October 4 at Washington County Middle School at 5 p.m., too late for reporting in this edition.

“Please come out and support these young men. They have been working very hard and have had a great football season,” Saggus added.
