Sophomore Zack Carter scored with 2:44 in the second quarter to put the Tigers on the board, but the Tigers were behind 28-7 at the half.

After halftime, Eupora came out and scored again with 6:38 remaining in the third. With a minute on the clock, the Tigers fought back, and sophomore Teon Thomas scored from 11 yards out, as the Tigers then trailed 35-14, after a Reed Rushing extra point.

The Eagles would pull away at the start of the fourth with another score, putting them ahead 42-14, ive minutes later adding to their lead at 49-14.

The Tigers had 216 total rushing yards against Eupora and were led by Zack Carter with ten tackles on the defense. A.J. Ables had nine tackles, and Maurice Rivers added five stops.

The Tigers will travel to J.Z. George Friday to take on a Jaguars team that shut out the Montgomery County Hornets 32-0 last week.
