04 Sep Tigers Swat Cardinals 37-21
Two Titans met at Jim Henderson Memorial Stadium Friday night and it was the Gunter Tigers that came away with an impressive victory 37-21 over the Pottsboro Cardinals. Gunter controlled the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball and handed Pottsboro their first regular season loss since……..you guessed it, 2014 when Gunter beat Pottsboro 28-26.
Gunter used 2 Colson Stovall td run’s in the first half to carve out a 24-7 lead. Pottsboro tried to get back in the game using their big play machine, Myles Mitchusson, but every time the Cardinals started to have a glimmer of hope the Tigers would come up with an answer. Myles Mitchusson hauled in a beautifully thrown 71 yard heave from Carson Rein in the third quarter, Pottsboro trailed 24-14. On the ensuing kickoff Gunter’s Dylan Jantz raced 98 yards to put the Tigers back on top for good.
Pottsboro broke several records
Most yards passing 395
Most receptions in a game Myles Mitchusson 14
longest reception in history 96 yards Rein to Mitchusson
but nothing mattered but the scoreboard. The Tigers exacted some revenge for last years 42-0 stomping and proved once again they are Pottsborro’s biggest rival. Gunter’s Senior running back Colson Stovall blasted his way to 240 yards and 3 td’s to overpower Pottsboro’s defense and the Cardinals Myles Mitchusson had a great night with 14 catches for 289 yards
The loss ends Pottsboro’s school record regular season winning streak at 19. The Cardinals now 1-1 will travel to Bonham for a non-district contest Friday. Hear the live broadcast on MIX 96.1 pregame 7:00.
