Tigers shutout Okeene to start 2020 season
The Canton Tigers kicked off their season with a 20-0 victory over the Okeene Whippets. While the two schools have built up quite the rivalry on the hardwood, this is their first matchup on the gridiron in recent memory with Okeene dropping to the eight-man level a year ago.
On Friday, the Coach Caleb Howell and the Tigers wasted no time as they took the opening kick and marched down the field on an eight-play, 59-yard drive, capped with an 11-yard touchdown pass from Luke Swartwood to Jake Sinclair. The score not only sent a message to Okeene that this would not be an easy night, but also fueled the Tigers’ confidence moving forward.
