In wet conditions Monday night at Brewton Municipal Stadium, the T.R. Miller B team defeated the W.S. Neal B team 30-0.
The T.R. Miller Tigers racked up 304 total yards of offense and held the W.S. Neal Eagles to 97 yards of total offense. The Tigers scored 14 second quarter points and then added 16 points in the fourth quarter to claim the win.
Tiger quarterback Becker Denton was 7-of-11 on the night passing for 190 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Tigers. Anthony Herbert had 68 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Dakota Shultz had four catches for 74 yards and one touchdown of 60 yards.
Herbert also led in rushing with 44 yards on five carries. David Ikner added a Tiger rushing touchdown in the win.
After neither offense could get any points on their first drive and the Eagles were forced to punt on their second drive to start the second quarter, the Tigers were the first to get on he board at the 7:33 mark in the quarter. On first down from their own 41-yard line, Denton connected with Herbert for a 59-yard touchdown to put the Tigers up 6-0. Jaren Jackson added the two-point conversion for the Tigers to give them an 8-0.
After the Tiger touchdown, the Eagles failed to move the ball again and the Tiger took over at their own 20-yard line.
From there, the Tigers used 12 plays to drive 80 yards and took 4:14 off the clock to go up 14-0 after a Denton-to Herbert connection.
In the second half, the Tigers fumbled on their opening drive, but held the Eagle offense to a punt again before failing to convert any points as the third quarter ended with the Tigers still up 14-0 over the Eagles.
In the fourth quarter, Denton added to his touchdown and yards in the game when he found Dakota Shultz in the middle of the field for a 60-yard touchdown to put the Tigers up 22-0 after a Darrion Salter two-point conversion for the Tigers at the 3:43 mark in the fourth quarter.
On the Eagles’ first snap after the Tiger touchdown, a bad snap for the Eagles turned into a fumble recovery for the Tigers who needed only two plays to take a 30-0 lead after a David Ikner 6-yard touchdown and two-point conversion.
With the win, the Tigers improved to 2-0 on the season in B team play after an opening game win over Opp. W.S. Neal fell to 0-1.
The Tigers will be back in action next Monday night at home against Escambia County. Game time is set for 6:30 p.m.
