The Tiger secondary--James Mastin, Vic Kirkland, James Mastin and Jackson-- also turned in a solid effort with blanketed coverage in Bulldog receivers. The Bulldogs threatened to extend their lead in the final moments of the first half after Butch Lucas recovered a Tarver fumble on the Tiger 35. Whiteley and Reed made stops on Anthony Wooten and Black and Bolton was off target with a pass and the 'Dogs were forced to punt. The Tigers attempted to use the final 2:35 of the half to gain a tie with the 'Dogs on two Homer Turner runs and a Tarver pass, but the drive stalled on the Tiger 39 and the Tigers punted to the hosts as the first half came to and end. After a scoreless third period, in which both punters saw moderate action, the Bulldogs commenced on another touchdown drive as the final period opened. Starting on their own 40, the 'Dogs moved the length of the field in 12 plays. Included in the touchdown march was the overcoming of two fourth down situations. The last such situation found John Jackson sweeping right end from four yards out. Creag shoed the PAT to up the Crockett lead to 14.0 with 6: 45 to go. Tarver unleashed a barrage of passes on the Tigers' final two series in the final six minutes of play, but the onrushing pass defense of the Bulldogs forced most of the passes harmlessly to the turf and time expired without a serious Tiger threat.
