The Ethel Tigers traveled to Pelahatchie last Friday night to take on the Region 3-1A foe Chiefs and lost the contest 38-7.
The Tigers are now 2-5 overall and 0-4 in region play.
The Chiefs jumped on the Tigers early and led 18-0 after one quarter of play.
The Tigers were unable to keep the Chiefs off the scoreboard in the second quarter as well, allowing two more touchdowns and found themselves down 32-0 at the intermission.
Pelahatchie would score one more time in the third quarter to take a 38-0 lead into the fourth.
The Tigers were able to get on the board in the fourth quarter when quarterback Bobby Potts found Antez Hopkins from 16 yards out, PAT good, to pull the score to 38-7.
“We were pretty much overmatched last Friday, they were bigger than us up front and their backs were as big as our offensive linemen,” said Tiger head coach Paul A. Dees. “They are a good football team, they kind of plowed through us and scored on their first play. We were down 16-0 with about four minutes left in the first quarter, and turned the ball over several times to allow them to get up on us 32-0 at halftime.”
The Chiefs rushed for 423 yards on 43 carries and had 10 yards passing on one attempt.
Defensively, the Chiefs sacked the Tiger quarterback three times on the night for a loss of 12 yards and collected one interception.
The Tigers will host West Oktibbeha Friday night at 7 p.m. in another Region 3-1A contest.
