Tigers earn first NWC win since 2009

October 15, 2011

Leading 7-0 early in the second half, Fred T. Foard’s defense defined itself in the Tigers’ conference contest at St. Stephens.

With the Indians punting from their own end zone, Foard’s Tanner Fleming knew the game was on the line.

“I gave it all I had. I knew it was important. I knew it was a big play to make,” Fleming said of a play where he blocked a Zach Bryant punt that was recovered by Sam Benfield in the end zone for a Foard touchdown.

“It felt like a dream,” he continued. “We are not a team that wins often, but right there, it clinched the victory.”

Johnson, along with teammate Will Jenkins, helped the Blue Devils pull ahead 27-0 in the first half and never looked back, earning a 48-7 conference victory over the visiting East Burke Cavaliers.
