Second Half Surge Gives Canton 27-7 Win Over Malakoff Tigers By Tom Herline MalakoWs Tigers drew first blood and held Canton's Eagles to a 7-7 tie at halftime last Friday before bowing 27-7 as the Eagles dominated the second half. It was the first game Malakoff had lost by a rmrgin greater than a touch- down. Canton took advantage of penalties and short punts to keep the Tigers in their own end of the field for virtually all the second half. Neither team was able to put together a scoring drive in the first quarter. Mala- koff got an opportunity when Jimmy Williams inter- cepted Eagle quarterback David Starnes' pass which had been tipped into the air by Tiger Gilbert Smith at the Eagle 34. But the Tigers only reached the 32 before running out of downs. The Eagles matched the interception with one of their own early in the second quarter, with Marly Sigman )icking off a Benny Rogers zss at his own 14-yard line.
