Tigers Pounce on Thunder in Route to Big Win

Share This:

The Tigers pounced on the Thunder to claim the out-right Region 9 title at Desert Hills High School Thursday night.

It didn’t take Hurricane High School long to get on the scoreboard. In fact, it was the Tigers’ first play from scrimmage, after stopping the Thunder on a fourth-down attempt early that did it. Weston Yardly ran the ball 57 yards for the touchdown. 

The touchdowns continued to pour in for the Tigers. Behind running back Brian Scott and quarterback Taylor Parker, Hurricane jumped out to a 21-0 lead going in to the half. 

It was much of the same for Hurricane in the second half. The Tigers scored in all four quarters of the game, and held the Thunder scoreless until late in the final period of play. 

With the 35-8 win, the undefeated Tigers claim the Region 9 season title. They finish the regular season next week at 2-5 Canyon View.
