Indians Fall To Macon Tigers
There’s a reason the Macon Tigers are ranked number one in the state. Several actually: Dylan Perrin, Levi Walker, Zach Mitchell, Henry Walker and Taquan Kelly.
The Macon Tigers for 378 yards of total offense in their victory over the Clark County Indians last Friday evening, September 23.
It was the Indians’ Homecoming, and expectations for a close game ran high, following the Indians one-point loss at Centralia and dominate performances over other foes this season.
But it wasn’t to be. The Indians gained only 14 yards on the ground and 114 through the air as they fell to a fast and physical Tiger team 38-0.
The first series of the game looked promising for Clark County, as Dalton McCarty hammered Macon’s Henry Walker, taking him out of the game with an injury. Luke Ross followed with a quarterback sack, and the Tigers had to punt away the football.
Clark County struggled on the ground all night, as the Macon defense won the battle at the line, effectively shutting down the Indians’ running game. Seth Williams threw for over 100 yards, but that wasn’t enough as Macon kept the Indian receivers bottled up all night.
Macon scored twice in the first quarter, and twice more in the second, going into the halftime with a 26-0 lead. They added two more touchdowns in the third quarter to go on to a 38-0 win over the Indians.
The Indians will travel to Brookfield this Friday. Brookfield downed Highland 55-6 last week.
