Grant High School
Central Montcalm High School
Your Grant Tiger Varsity overcame a slow start and rolled to a convincing 41-8 victory over the Central Montcalm Hornets.
Grant went 3 and out to start the game, then turned the ball over on downs on their next possession. After that, it was all Tigers! Grant racked up 369 yards rushing behind a strong performance by the offensive line. The Tigers added 47 yards passing but most importantly they took care of the football by committing ZERO turnovers!
Your Tiger Defense continues to play outstanding football. They held the Hornets to 227 yards of total offense. Your Tiger Defense turned the Hornets over 7 times, recovering 5 fumbles and intercepting Central Montcalm twice. One of those crucial interceptions was recorded by defensive tackle Tom Langan who nearly returned the ball for a touchdown before being caught from behind just short of the goal line.
The victory was a total team effort, with multiple players contributing.
Come join the Tigers Friday Sept. 15th at 7:00 pm as they host Reed City.
