Hannigan The News Staff ARP - The final touch- down run of Malakoff's 35- 6 thumping of Shelbyville last Saturday night tells the tale of the game. On a second-and-three play late in the fourth quar- ter, Tiger Jackie Coleman took a handoff from quar- terback Dalton Coia and swept through the right side of the line. Coleman easily picked up the first down before being hit, hard, along the right sideline. Instead of stepping out of bounds happy with the first down, Coleman continued to drive his legs, punishing the Dragon defenders. When the spinning and whirling senior finally came to a stop 32 yards later, still standing, he had his third touchdown of the game and Malakoffhad a 2- 0 record to start the season. While the Tigers weren't always pretty Saturday night - particularly during the second half when they had three turnovers - they were always devastatingly effective. The defense, in particu- lar, gave Shelbyville fits, intercepting three passes and holding the Dragons to just 160 total yards and seven first downs on the evening. The defense even got MIKE BROWNLOW PHOTO Malakoff's Dalton Coia races down the sideline alter intercepting a pass in Saturday's game against Shelbyville. things started on the score- board when, on the second play of the game, Coia intercepted a Ryan Wilburn pass and raced 40 yards for a touchdown. The Dragon's next drive also ended with an inter- ception, this time by Chris Harvin off a tipped pass, which set up Malakoff at the Shelbyville 47. Seven plays later, the big one a 21- yard pass from Coia to Scan Marks, Coleman had his first touchdown on a 13- yard run. Aaron Reed added the extra point, as he did on all five Malakoff touch- downs on the night, and the score was quickly 14-0. Coleman ended the night with 45 yards on six carries. Malakoff's one big defen- sive breakdown of the game - a 51-yard run by Dragon Michael Andrews - led to Shelbyville's only score on a one-yard plunge by Wilbum. The Tigers quickly answered back, however, scoring on a 15-yard pass from Coia to Coby Dawson, and Coleman scored on a five-yard run with just 32 seconds left in the second quarter to give Malakoff a 28-6 halftime lead. Stephen Ramsour iced the game late for the Tigers, intercepting a Andrews' pass. With the Dragon defense geared to stop MalakolTs bevy of talented tailbacks, Coia found enough space inside to lead all runners with 86 yards on 12 carries. Marks had a combined 84 yards from scrimmage on two catches and five car- ties. MICHAEL V. HANNIGAN PHOTO Brittany Dowell (2) goes up to block a Rice shot Tuesday night.
