It was Fred T. Foard who kicked off Maiden's football season opener, and it was the Tigers who also ended the Blue Devils season.

Foard (9-3), the No. 12 seed from the Class 2AA West bracket, defeated the No. 5 seed and South Fork 2A conference champions Maiden with a 16-0 victory Friday at Thomas E. Brown Stadium, thus ruining the Blue Devils perfect season (11-1).

The Tigers will travel to Mt. Pleasant next Friday.
