Big plays spark Reedsville past Tigers

REEDSVILLE – The Howards Grove Tigers outgained Reedsville 395-365 in total offensive yardage but gave up two touchdowns on kickoff returns which were backbreakers as they lost a shoot-out, 53-33, here Friday night.

The Panthers’ raised their record to 4-0 while the Tigers fell to 0-4. Despite the defeat, Tiger head coach David Schmid saw some bright spots.

“We made some strides tonight as a team on offense and defense. Our running game really picked up as did our pass protection,” said Schmid.

“The offensive line has worked hard lately and it showed tonight. Defensively, we showed some bright spots but need to continue to to work on the early downs so we don’t give them third and fourth down and short.

“The biggest difference in the game was giving up two kick returns for TDs. We’ll need to sharpen that up,” Schmid.

The Tigers rushed for a seasonhigh 188 yards, led by running back Tyler Klemme with 96 on only nine carries. Edge was 14- for-19 passing for 207 yards and three TDs. Running back Quentin Zettler rushed for a two scores.
