The Calhoun Tigers gave a good account of themselves Friday, Sept. 11 in falling to Class 2A Region 3 opponent Zion Chapel on the road 35-18.
“We played with more enthusiasm this week,” said Calhoun head football coach Dewayne Williams.
Williams said his team made too many fundamental mistakes that cost them on big plays… two interceptions, one inside the 10-yard line. However, he said, “Overall great effort this (week) and looking forward to next week.”
Williams called the improvement in the team “soul searching.” And now, he said, one of his seniors says he has “his swag back.”
Williams went on the stay that the Tigers’ words for the game were “faith, perseverance and commitment.” He said the team has “faith that we can still accomplish our goals, perseverance in the face of adversity and commitment to stick with it to the end of the season.”
For the Tigers, Arthur Phifer ran for 228 yards and two touchdowns, Dailan Carter ran for 60 yards, had seven solo tackles, three for loss, and Gnald Sharpe had 30 yards receiving and a 5-yard rushing touchdown.
The Tigers, 0-3, 0-2, will face non-regional opponent Goshen at home this coming Friday.
