Tigers season comes to an end in Okeene
The Canton Tigers were eliminated from the playoffs by the Okeene Whippets last Friday in the opening round of the postseason. After shutting out the rival-Whippets in the season-opener, Okeene returned the favor to Canton with 28-0 loss that brought the Tigers’ season to an end.
“The score doesn’t reflect how hard these guys played tonight,” stated Coach Caleb Howell. “Okeene has gotten better, which teams do throughout the season. Injuries were an issue for us, but the kids still went out and gave it everything they had, and I’m proud of that.”
Things looked promising on Canton’s first drive when Jake Sinclair busted a reverse loose for 14 yards to get the ball into Okeene territory. However, the drive stalled when Seth Bromlow was hit in the backfield for a loss on fourth and short at the 28-yard line.
