“I was very please with our defensive effort Friday night”, head coach Greg Jordan said Monday following the Blountstown Tigers’ 27-7 victory over Sneads Friday night at Bowles Field. “However, we must continue to get better on offense each week. We’ve got to get better in the passing game. We completed only one of six passing,” Jordan noted.
The Tigers will have two weeks to prepare for the Chipley Tigers with an open date on the schedule this week. The Chipley game will be in Chipley at 7:00 p.m. The Junior Varsity will be in action Thursday against Liberty County, there at 6:00.
Jordan had good reason to applaud the defense. They held Sneads to 63 yards rushing on 44 attempts. Sneads gave up four fumbles, one being returned for a 30 yard touchdown by Jawon Mosley. Paul Mosley intercepted two Sneads passes for the Tiger defense. Sneads gained 26 yards on 3 of 9 passes.
Linebackers Jason Money and Alexander Garrett led the defensive effort assisting on 15 tackles each. Bryan Hall assisted on 12 tackles followed by Frankie Murrell with 10. Jawon Mosley was in on 8 tackles followed by Stafford Dawson with 7 and Princeton Grant with 5.
For the Tigers on offense, two lost fumbles stopped two drives and untimely penalties slowed others. Fortunately, the running of Leon Broxton and Jawon Mosley provided plenty of spark. Broxton had 113 yards on 15 carries while Mosley rushed 8 times for 47 yards. One of Broxton’s runs was for 15 yards and a touchdown. Mosley scored on a 2 yard blast. Quarterback Charles Buggs, Jr. scored the other Tiger touchdown on a dive from the one.
