Tigard football shutdown Tualatin 41-0

By Amanda Lam, Staff Writer

On Friday, Oct. 5 the Tigard Tigers football team played their Homecoming game against their crosstown rivals, the Tualatin Timberwolves. It was a perfect fall night for a football game with clear skies and a slight breeze. Tthe Tigers were expecting a good game. In years past the Tigard vs. Tualatin game was always a close one, but tonight was a different story.

The Tualatin football players and their student section came in confident saying that it was “tiger hunting season” and wearing shirts that said: Our “T” is better than your “T”. However the Tigers didn’t let it get to their heads, focusing only on playing the best they could.

The game started with a 25 yard touchdown run by senior Kaz Greene during the first quarter and it certainly wasn’t his last. During the second quarter Greene made another touchdown run, this time with a total of 74 yards. At halftime Tigard was leading 21-0.

Fans wondered if the Timberwolves were planning on catching up during the third quarter. It became quite evident early during the second half that the Tigers were in it for all or nothing.   With two minutes left in the quarter, Greene ran his third touchdown of the night, leaving the Tigers 28-0. Greene was without question the star of the game but without it wouldn’t have been possible if not for Tigards great offensive line. Tualatin didn’t end up scoring once during the game. Tigard won 41-0 with a total of 6 touchdowns.

Tualatin’s student section left the bleachers with five minutes left in the game, and Tigard’s student section began rushing the field to congratulate their players with 33.3 seconds left in the game. If anyone doubted that Tigards “T” was better they were definitely proven wrong and it looks like hunting season even never began.
