The Hurricane Tigers remain undefeated after a match up Friday against the Pine View Panthers. Hurricane showed why they have made it to the state championship the past three years by putting the first points up on the board with a 9-yard run from Thompson. After a 30-yard run from Scott, Pine View was able to sneak across the goal line to end the half 14-7. 

The Tigers continued to run the ball after the break, scoring another 7 on another Brian Scott run. Ty Matavo was able to put up another Panther score. Brian Scott ran the ball into the endzone again to add to the Hurricane lead. Following Scott’s lead the defense wanted a turn, Taylor Parker returned a interception 42 yards to end out the Tiger scoring. The Panthers fought until the end with Quaterback Braxton Peterson able to run one more in to end the game 35-21. 

Scott surpassed 1,000 yards on the season with his performance tonight. He had 27 carries for 168 yards and three touchdowns.  Mortensen and Edwards added a combined 23 tackles and one sack for the Tigers.
