Tigers ride running game to 28-14 win over Walker
The Tiger defense was also key in the victory, holding a Charger team that was averaging close to 37 points a game to just two touchdowns. The Tigers had four takeaways on the night, two of them interceptions in Charger territory. The first of those interceptions by defensive back Devonty Alexander set up White’s first touchdown of the game. The second, snatched by linebacker Brody Bourg, his second of the game, set up White’s final score early in the fourth quarter.
The Tigers built up an early 21-0 lead that took them through halftime and the beginning of the third quarter. Two of those drives were highlighted by long receptions from quarterback Brian Ensminger to receivers Ronny Green and Dontrell Strickland.
Ensminger, who was injured last week against Lutcher, was healthy enough to start and completed 6 of 15 passes for 102 yards.
In the third quarter, the Tiger offense was held in check by the Chargers which allowed Walker an opportunity to keep the game from becoming a blowout.
The Chargers finally cracked the Tiger defense late in the third quarter on a 50-yard drive that was helped along by two lengthy penalties on the Tigers. The other Charger score came on a long drive in the fourth quarter, but by then the Tigers had sealed up the game.
After falling to Lutcher last week, the Tigers rebound with a strong victory to improve to 3-1 on the season. Hahnville will host Vanderbilt Catholic next Friday in their Homecoming game.
