Princeton Wins Battle Of The Tigers

The Princeton Tigers picked up a road win on Thursday night 49-14 over the Sherrard Tigers in week 5 varsity football action.  Sherrard's homecoming game was played a day early due to expected heavy rains Friday night.  Ethan Wright had a pair of first quarter touchdown runs for PHS, from 4 and 10 yards.  After his second score, Princeton recovered their own onside kick and moved down the field quickly with Ronde Worrels adding a 4 yard scoring run for a 21-7 lead at the end of one quarter.  Worrels scored from 10 yards out early in the second quarter to stretch the PHS lead to 28-7 and added another 4 yard score later in the quarter to put the Tigers up 35-7.  Tyler Gibson's 7 yard quarterback scramble gave PHS a 42-7 advantage at halftime.  After a scoreless third quarter, Worrels put the game into a "running clock" situation with a 12 yard touchdown run with 6:30 left in the game.  In addition to his touchdown run, Gibson was 9 of 16 passing for 192 yards while Wyatt Davis led the Tigers in receiving with 7 catches for 167 yards.  Jaimie Reinhardt was perfect on all 7 of his PAT kicks.  Sherrard's only scores came on a first quarter touchdown pass of 43 yards from Kyle Yeater to D'Angelo Moody and a 5 yard run by Caleb McWhorter with 1:50 left in the game.  Princeton improved to 4-1 while Sherrard dropped to 1-4.  Week 6 is Princeton's homecoming as the Tigers host the Hall Red Devils.  Norm Vandermoon and Curtis Odell will have the broadcast on WZOE-AM 1490 and streaming live at princetonnewsnow.com and the princetonnewsnow.com WZOE Facebook page.
