Tigers Fall To Braves, 42-14

By: Bianca Warren
Sports Information Director

The Tigers may have heart but could not muscle up enough strength to walk off the Parkview High School's football field victorious in their first home game against UNC Pembroke. For both teams, this was a game full of penalties, from personal fouls to holding.

The Tigers won the coin toss, but to kick-off to the fearless Braves.

The first quarter was a slow one for Saint Paul's. UNCP took control of the game early by scoring their first touchdown within the first five minutes of the game. The Braves senior Quarterback, Cory Smith, showed the Tigers how fearless he was by throwing a 53 yard touchdown to junior wide receiver, Joe Burnett, bringing the score 14-0.

The Tigers offense was no match to the Braves defense, however, the Tigers defense showed their "heavy-hitting" skills well. Sophomore Dominic Tolson had two major tackles in the second quarter (10 total), minimizing the Braves advancement up the field. Both Leonard Thought and Khiry Bennett made it tough on the Braves offense by breaking up passes. Senior defensive lineman Jarvis Stokes made the only sack of the game in the second half giving the Braves a loss of 12 yards on that particular play.

In the third quarter the Tigers fought hard to score their first touchdown. Tigers quarterback Steffen Miller-Colon was sacked three times (five in total), threw two incomplete passes and was forced a fumble by a host of Braves. Staying alert on the field, senior running back Albert Tinsley recovered the fumble and went in for SPC's first touchdown.

UNCP answered the Tigers touchdown with another touchdown of their own bringing the score to 28-7.

Tinsley then answered the Braves touchdown with a 75 yard kick return dancing his way to the visitor's five yard line leaving a host of Braves watching from the ground. That amazing performance ended the third quarter, and left the Tigers fans with crossed fingers in hopes they would pull off another touchdown.

The Tigers could not let their fans down and within the first minute of the fourth quarter, Miller-Colon threw for ten yards to Osmund Brown for a Tigers touchdown.

The fans cheers quickly changed.

The Braves quickly advanced up the field and into Tiger territory once more with yet another touchdown. The score, 42-14.

The game became very heated as the clock began to tick into the last few minutes of the game. Both teams were called out for unsportsmanlike conduct, and two of the Tigers' players almost were ejected, Emory Addison and Joshua Stanley. After a brief discussion with the referee, they were allowed back into the game.

The UNCP Braves ended the game 42-14.

The Tigers will start the CIAA conference competition next Saturday against Saint Augustine College in Raleigh, NC at 1 P.M. The next home game will be held Saturday, September 25, 2010 against Livingstone College at 1 P.M. at Parkview High School.
