Second Half Letdown

Tigers Outscored 17-0 in Second Half for Second Straight Loss


Tiger quarterback Zach McGeorge gets set to fire a pass as teammate Jacob Hyde delivers a block during Friday's game against Marion County.

Lebanon – A disappointing second-half performance from the Clay County Tigers led to their second straight loss of the year, falling to host Marion County 31-14 Saturday night in the Heart of Kentucky Pigskin Classic.

The Tigers ended the first half tied at 14, but the Marion County offense torched the Tigers in the second, as Clay County’s offense struggled throughout the game.

“We started off playing well,” said Tiger Head Coach Kenny Roark, “But we made a lot of mental errors.  We have to learn to play full go for the whole 48 minutes.”
