For the second straight week, the Fred T. Foard football team lost a tough game on the road.
The Tigers (1-2) committed five turnovers in Friday’s game against West Lincoln, including four lost fumbles and an interception by quarterback Erik Ware.
It was an ugly game by both teams. While Foard committed five turnovers, West Lincoln also struggled, throwing an interception and fumbling the ball three times, losing two of them.
The Rebels (2-1) took a 6-0 lead in the first half behind an 8-yard run from Evan Lopes. It was Lopes’ lone rush of the game.
Carrying that momentum out of halftime, West Lincoln added a 27-yard field goal by sophomore kicker Ethan Bumgardner to extend its lead.
Trying to lead a comeback, Tigers running back Tre Robinson scored on a 1-yard run in the third quarter to cut the Rebel lead to three after a missed extra point. Robinson led Foard with 115 yards on 17 carries.
Turnovers caught up with Foard in the end - the Tigers lost two fumbles on two critical possessions.
The Tigers try to rebound next week in their third straight road game. Foard travels to meet the Bunker Hill Bears.
