The MCJH Tigers kept their dream of an undefeated season alive last Tuesday night with a 32-0 shutout win over the Eagles of Westmoreland Middle School.
Tiger signal caller Carlisle competed three 1st quarter TD passes, two to Bailey Law (38 and 49 yards each) and one to Braxton Crawford for 25 yards. Sewell added a two point conversion to make the first half score 20-0.
In the 3rd quarter Carlisle had a 43 yard touchdown scramble on a busted play. Law added a 22 yard TD run late in the third period. Coach Wilson rested the starters the rest of the way. The 2nd team offense had a 9 play drive that ended on the 5 yard line and the 2nd defense held off the Eagles to get the shutout.
The MCJH Tigers are 7-0 and will travel to Baxter this Tuesday night to face Cornerstone Middle School. The win over the Eagles secured the Tigers a spot in the Middle Tennessee Conference Championship game this Saturday in a rematch against the Overton County Wildcats.
Since taking over the Junior High program, this will be the 4th time in six years Coach Nathan Wilson has led his team to the championship game. Coach Wilson stated, “Our goal is to win a championship but being undefeated makes it that much more special.” Tuesday nights’ game will be at the old field at Cornerstone Middle and Saturdays’ Championship game will be at the Upperman High School field, both in Baxter, Tn. Come out and cheer on the Tigers and “I’ll see you at the game.”
