Tiger Sharks rock Jefferson County

They ran the ball well, rushing 44 times for 215 yards with Cole Cryderman (12 carries, 62 yards) and Dwayne Griggs (9 for 56) leading the way, while getting support from Carter Thacker’s 45 yards and five other backs who had positive rushing yards.

“We took care of the ball and ate up the clock,” Gannon said.

The Tiger Sharks also found a passing game, thanks in part, Gannon said, to an observation by assistant Coach Kenny Parker.

Gannon said Parker noticed that a Jefferson County safety followed a Shark going in motion across the formation, possibly opening up the tight end on the back side down the seam of the defense.

Sure enough, tight end Aaron Paul found open space twice on the same play – once before halftime, the second early in the third quarter – for a pair of touchdowns covering a combined 88 yards.

Quarterback Drew Lacour finished 4 of 5 for 106 yards with one interception.

“We thought we had a good game plan coming in,” Gannon said. “We thought we could do some things passing. We played good defense and moved the ball well in spots.”
