Tigers move to 2-0 after homecoming victory against Geary

Last week, the Canton Tigers improved to 2-0 for the first time since 2014 with their homecoming victory over the Geary Bison. After shutting Geary out a year ago, Canton had a tougher matchup on their hands, but was still able to pull out the victory, 36-22.

Two weeks ago, Canton was able to manhandle Mt. View-Gotebo thanks to a solid offensive performance, but last week it took a total-team effort and some improvements from their week-one victory. However, Coach Jeremy Brashears got his wish on the first drive of the game when Canton marched down the field on a 11-play, 71-yard scoring drive that featured no penalties.

“Starting that way was huge,” stated Breashers. “After last week, our goal was to clean it up and I think we did. As far as the penalties, we fixed that. We only had a few tonight. We had three in the first few minutes last week. I think we met our goals. We wanted to win an we wanted to clean things up. We did both.”
