WINONA -- The Winona Tigers are starting to unleash the offense at the right time.

The Tigers will need to continue that hot offensive play this week as the Aberdeen Bulldogs come to town in a critical 4-3A matchup. The Tigers knocked off South Pontotoc last week 56-6 in Pontotoc.

The Tigers move to 2-7 on the season and are 1-2 in district play with the win.

Hosting Aberdeen on Friday, it's the Tigers final home game of the season, and the Bulldogs were manhandled by Louisville 39-13 last week.

"We're playing with confidence," head coach Ken Chandler said. "We have to hold their quarterback and receivers, because that's their strength."

The Tigers got a great defensive effort from Zack Carter who finished the game with 14 tackles. Ray Richardson had 13 tackles and also added an interception. Maurice Rivers and Kentrell James added seven tackles, while Teon Thomas also added seven stops.

Jeda Finches had six tackles as did Jaquell Davis. Joey Crawford and Joey Mims both added five tackles.

Sophomore Teon Thomas had a career game with 8 rushes for 163 yards and two touchdowns. But it's the play of sophomore Jaquell Davis that has Chandler excited.

"Jaquell [Davis] is really improving," Chandler said. "He's a hard nose player that is working every week to get better."

Davis finished the game with seven carries for 84 yards and one score. Quarterback Josh Carpenter was 6 for 11 for 84 yards and one touchdown.

"This is a great group to coach, and they come in every day ready to work," Chandler said.
