At ttus point the Tigers' Ron Denis, Tom Byers, Joe Campana and Whiteley put clamps on the Kerens workhorse, forcing a punt. The Tigers suffered a near-disaster on the David West punt and return man Clint Clements mishandled the kick and watched the pigsking roll toward the Tigers endzone. Vic Kirkland recovered the bobble to enable the Tigers to avoid the catastrophe. The near-miss was a sign of things to come, however, as halfback James Mastin fumbled into the waiting arms of Bobcat Jimmy Haley on the Tigers' first play from scrimmage. Gaining ownership on the Malakoff 17-yard line, the Bobcats quickly moved year's opener inside the Tiger 10 on two Mitchell schools, penalties and gainers. Following an incomplete a dominant factor.

The crucial play never materialized as Anderson was unable to control the snap-from-center and the Tigers regained possession on the 10-yard stripe. At this point the Tigers offensive line--Harold Holyfield, Carey Jackson, Todd Monore, Campana and Denis--took matters into their own hands and began creating huge running lanes for the Tiger backs. James Jackson, Whiteley and Mastin took advantage of the room and reeled off runs at eight and nine yards a shot. Five plays and a personal foul penalty later, the Tigers camped on the Kerens 34-yard line. The Tigers wasted little time scoring their initial touchdown as Tarver connected with a wide-open Kirkland on the Kerens 12. Kirkland eluded a would- be tackler and trekked into the promised land. Clements shoed the PAT and the Tigers were on top to stay with 4:03 remaining in the opening chapter. After a fumble exchange and two swaps of punts, Holyfield recovered a Matt Jackson fumble to give the Tigers ownership on the home 48. Once again traveling quickly, Tarver and Kirkiand teamed up on a 38-yard pass play that was highlighted by a circus-like catch. In his attempt to catch the perfectly- tossed aerial, Kirk]and batted the ball twice before tripping and falling to his back only to control it in his grasp in- ches from the playing surface. Two plays later Jackson slashed off tackle into the end zone with 6:23 to go in the first half. Clements was again true with PAT to give the Tigers a 14-0 advantage. The Tiger defensive unit continued to stop the Bobcats at will following the ensuing kickoff, forcing another Bobcat punt. West spiralled his best effort of the contest--a 48-yarder--into the heavens and to the Malakoff 12-yard marker. Taking over with just over two minutes remaining in the half, the Tigers battled the Bobcats and the clock in search for their third score. Following consistent gainers by Mastin and Jackson, Whiteley ripped through the line for 29 yards, moving the Tigers to the Kerens 18. Homer Turner, in his first appearance in the Tiger backfield added an ll-yard gainer to the drive to set the Tigers on the Kerens seven. The Tigers surprised the visitors from Navarro county on the following play as Tarver dumped a pass to tight end John McCain for six-yard ~ainer. Following a time-out, Tarver penetrated the goal line on a quar- terback sneak. Clements was true with the PAT and the Tigers owned a 21-0 lead with 32 seconds left before the halftime intermission. The Bobcats, under new mentor Jerry Don Anderson, found the Tigers' defense even tougher in the second half, managing a mere 38 total yards. The Tigers also limited the 'Cats to two first downs, which matched their first half total. Late in the third stanza the Bobcats threatened to spoil the Tigers' shut-out bid as they moved inside the Tiger five- yard line on a 14-yard Mitchell effort. Operating from the one on third down, the Gary Tolliver attempted to crack the defensive middle, but was stopped by Ron Speed and Campana. Mitchell received the call on fourth and goal, but was hurled for a four-yard loss by Scott Clendenning, who was playing in his first varsity encounter, on a beautiful one-on-one, open field tackle. Both coaches used the game's latter stages to look at back-up personnel with the Tigers up by three touchdowns and the stadium clock hurriedly moving towards the 0:00 mark. The Tigers' of- fensive reserves continued the local gridsters' domination as time expired. Joining Whiteley as top rushers for the hosts were Mastln and Jackson with 61 and 34 yards respectively. Mitchell led the Kerens attack with 49 steps on 14 tries. Tolliver finished with 32 on 12 totes. The Tigers journey to Brownsboro Friday night for the 33rd renewal of Henderson County's oldest rivalry, while the Bobcats play host to the Hub- bard Jaguars. Both tilts have 8 p.m. starts. I~LUDING THE TACKLER: Tiger halfback Homer Turner made a hasty move in attempt to avoid a diving, would-be Kerens tackler. Harold Holyfield (77) watched Turner, who was promoted from the junior varsity earlier in the week. The Tigers whipped the Bobcats, 21-0, and will meet arch-rival Brownsboro in Brownsboro tomorrow night.
