Tigard beats Lake Oswego 41-36

By Sydney Dauphinais, Staff Writer

Decked out in pink for Breast Cancer Awareness, the Tigard Tigers had yet again another victory this Friday night, this time against rivals Lake Oswego.

Though the game had a good start with senior Brady McGetrick making the first touchdown, what followed was not as promising. Lake O quickly tied, then had the lead until the fourth quarter when Tigard made a comeback, making for a close score of 41-36.

“It was a tough game but we weren’t going to let them win. We worked too hard during the week to let that happen,” said senior Ethan Mcconnell. “It was a great game and the fans were the loudest I’ve ever heard them be.”

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, so to support the cause, Nike offered tons of pink gear to Tigard’s football team. Not only were their gloves and cleats pink, but so were the numbers on their jerseys. They also were given pink Power T stickers to put on their helmets in an effort to help spread awareness.

“It’s really cool that we can recognize breast cancer and support awareness as an entire school, because we all have been touched by it one way or another,” says junior Rachel Haning, who performed at half time with the dance team.

The football team will have yet another opportunity to continue their winning streak on October 17th with their game against West Linn. It’s a home game, so our bleachers will be filled with the Tigard Army cheering and giving their support!
