“Luverne is a well-coached team, and they just beat us,” said head coach Bill Williamson.

The Calhoun defense held Luverne on fourth-and-goal on Luverne’s opening drive, but the offense was unable to move the ball out of the shadow of their own endzone.

After a partially blocked punt, Luverne’s Uriah Brown returned the ball 15 yards for a touchdown, and the Tigers held a 6-0 lead after the first period.

The Luverne offense started clicking in the second quarter, and they led 31-0 at halftime.

Calhoun began having some success in the passing game as quarterback Jamarcus Davison connected with Jeffery Moss for several first downs.

Calhoun put some points on the board when a host of Tigers earned a safety with 5:49 left in the third quarter.

The passing game again proved big for Calhoun when Davison hit Jakeem Davison for a 29-yard touchdown pass with 3:03 left in the third quarter to make the score 38-8.

Luverne scored twice in the fourth quarter to seal the game.

Next week, Calhoun travels to Highland Home.
