Tenaha Tigers have home season opener tonight after winning on the road last week
The Tenaha Tigers took their first victory of the season on the road this past Friday when they beat Troup, 15-7.
Troup opened the scoring on a 21-yard TD pass from Jordan Elliott to Anthony Salgado. But new Head Coach Robert Tamplin's Tigers answered with a 5-play, 45-yard drive that was capped by a Jeremy Patton touchdown run and a Michael Hogg two-point conversion for an 8-7 lead.
After a scoreless first half, Tenaha built that slim lead in the third quarter and added a TD in the fourth to earn a 15-7 win over Troup.
With just 1:01 remaining, Patton scored on a 20-yard run to put the game in the bag for Tenaha.
The Tigers are hosting Lovelady at Raymond Jackson Stadium this week with a 7:30 p.m. Kickoff on Friday, Sept. 6.
