Tigers pound Bearcats The Bay High Tigers got off to their best start of the season taking a 14-0 lead on the first 4 plays of the game and pounding the home-standing Bearcats at the line of scrimmage with first down after first down. The Tigers then kept Long Beach at bay with three second half interceptions on their way to a 39-28 win at Long Beach.

Rock-a-Chaws slip by Yellow Jackets 34-31 The St. Stanislaus Rock-a-chaws came from behind to sting the St. Martin Yellow Jackets 34-31 in a back-and-forth gridiron classic.

Tigers get first win on the road, 17-7 The Bay High Tigers had to overcome a 27-yard passing score by West Harrison midway through the second quarter, a barrage of penalties, and three scores nullified by penalties in their first win of the season. Even at 7-7 at halftime, the Tigers scored 10 points in the second half to close out the Hurricanes, 17-7.
The Tigers ran the ball effectively all night, utilizing the shifty running of Keishaun Pullom, Vernon Barnes and Larnelle Lewis and the pounding style of Triston Hopgood and Brennen Fountain. However, penalty after penalty proved to be drive killers.
"The kids fought hard and we got a win," said Tigers coach Jeff Hopgood. "We're excited about it. We had too many penalties and too many mistakes; we can't have that. Sep 6, 2014, 02:12
Hancock Hawks down East Central 41-21 Hancock High School Quarterback Chase Fagan had one of the most apropos names in high school football Friday night because the East Central Hornets chased Fagan all around Brett Favre Field to little avail.
Fagan was at his best Friday, throwing for 217 yards, rushing for 235, tossing three touchdowns and adding another on the ground.
Michael Scardino added two more touchdowns, as Hancock (1-1) overcame a half-time deficit, to down the Hornets 41-21.
"It was all about the second half," Hawks Head Coach Rocky Gaudin said. "I thought our defense played well in the second half. East Central has a good offensive football team. It's no surprise that other teams have had trouble stopping them."
