Tigers still unbeaten
By Gary Buchanan
Tallassee dominated Childersburg Friday night, winning 35-12. The victory improves the Tigers’ record to 4-0 overall, 2-0 in region play.
Trent Cochran-Gill scored from 50 yards out on the third play of the game. Tallassee’s second possession of the night saw Casey Baynes score on a 46-yard touchdown run. Baynes would add two additional touchdowns, one from eight yards and one from 15 yards. Markevious Matthews tallied a score on a 22-yard jaunt.
There was an international flair to extra points. After Nick Talley put the first PAT through the uprights, Sophomore Patrick Joekel took over the kicking duties. Joekel is an exchange student from Germany. In his first varsity action, he connected on two of his three PAT attempts.
The Tiger defense had another big night, forcing five turnovers. Senior Logan Goodman recovered two fumbles and had several tackles, including tackles for loss. His effort earned him the Bright House Player of the Game honors.
