Calhoun head football coach Ervin Starr took the blame for the eighth loss of the Tigers this year on himself. He said following Friday’s game, “I didn’t have a good game plan tonight and did not have our team ready to play tonight. When you are playing a well-coached and disciplined football team, you can’t make many penalties and have too many negative yards.”

He said, “Zion Chapel was a better football team than Calhoun tonight.”

Kyle Brown led the Tigers in rushing with 176 yards against Zion Chapel on 17 carries. He also had an interception from the safety position.

However, Allen Perdue led the Tigers on defense with 11 tackles, including two tackles for loss and one sack.

Starr said the Tiger losing streak is now at 29 games with two games left to play in the season.

Calhoun travel to New Brockton for a regional contest on Friday, Oct. 27 and will host Geneva High in a non-reginal encounter for the last game of the season on Friday, Nov. 3.
