Tigers end regular season perfect

Frenship has been a second half team all season, and Friday was no different when the Tigers rallied in the second half to blow out Dumas in a 42-14 victory Friday in Dumas.


With both teams tied at the halfway mark, the Tigers defense proved to be too much for the Demon offense.


Dumas was unable to establish any type of running game recording minus one-yard as a team. The Demon’s one-dimensional offensive attack led to three interceptions.


The Tigers were true to form by starting off slow in the first half.


An interception returned for a 50-yard touchdown from Tiger defensive back Keiondre Gober on the first Dumas drive of the second half set the tone for the rest of the game.


The Tigers stalled the Demons on the ensuing drive when Dumas missed a 39-yard field goal, in a series that would be its closest opportunity to score in the second half.


Frenship’s offense settled into a rhythm late in the third quarter when the Tigers drove 96-yards for a touchdown and a 28-14 lead. The drive was capped by a 45-yard run from Troy Gonzales with the Tigers facing 4-and-1.


Frenship middle linebacker Stephen Smith intercepted Dumas quarterback Clayton Baker three plays later to give the Tiger offense the ball at the Dumas 31-yard line.


The teams exchanged three-and-outs before the Tigers marched 48-yards for their next touchdown. The score came from Gonzales with a 6-yard run.


Dumas’ offense went into panic mode trailing 35-14 and ended its next series in a turnover on downs.


The Tigers took advantage of field position in the Dumas territory on the ensuing drive when D’Maujeric Tucker rushed for a  19-yard touchdown to give Frenship a 42-14 lead.


Troy Gonzales who had two touchdowns and 71 yards rushing led the Tigers. Bobby Huey rushed for 72 yards and a touchdown.


Quarterback Tucker Tuberville was 6-for-10 with 168 yards and a touchdown.


Gober scored on a 69-yard pass as well as his 50-yard interception return.


The Tigers are set to face Witchita Falls Rider at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Peoples Bank Stadium for the Class 4A Bi-District playoff round.
