Tigers get a win

Friday, October 9, 2015

The Green Forest junior high football team defeated Yellville-Summit 33-16 on Oct 1. Coach Ryan Whetham said his team came out and played very well.

"Rhett Powell came out and had a great job rushing the football," Whetham said. "Will Chaney really stood out defensively to us, just coming downhill, making tackles."

Whetham said some of the plays Powell made were incredible.

"There were a few runs, one touchdown, where it was all on his own," Whetham said.

The Tigers were 0-4 heading the game against the Panthers, and as a result Whetham said it was important they get that win.

"The whole outcome was really good," Whetham said. "Our kids really needed that win and it will hopefully be a boost for us for the rest of the year."

Green Forest hosted Marshall on Thursday night.
