Tigers Come Up Short In Hard Fought Battle

WSHS FB Playoff Week 1 Amite

The Winnfield Tigers traveled to Amite last Friday in the 2019 LHSAA Playoffs and competed hard through four quarters of play. A costly fumble on the Tigers’ 20-yard line on the Tigers’ 2 nd drive of the night proved costly as the Warriors took over and ate up precious time on the clock. The Warriors returned the favor in the second quarter, and the score 7-0, with a bad punt snap that gave the Tigers the ball on the Winnfield 20 yard line, but the Tigers had to settle on a 30 yard field goal by Theeramet Muskibootalert (Mek). With the score 7-3, the Amite Warriors went to work in the air connecting on two long passes for touchdowns ending the half with the Tigers only down by 16 points.

The second half was more of the same for the Warriors as they hit three more long passes for touchdowns. The Tigers’ touchdown came on a blocked punt with Brandon Florence picking up the ball and taking it 10 yards for the touchdown. Final score Amite 38 Winnfield 9.
