The DeKalb County Tigers were held scoreless in the first half, but exploded for 33 points in the second half, even without their starting quarterback Hunter Poteete, in beating the Upperman Bees Saturday night at Tennessee Tech 33 to 14.
The win improves the Tiger record to 6-3 on the season and 3-1 in District 8 Double-A.
Poteete came out of the game early in the second quarter and did not return. He apparently had a tendon injury in his left ankle.
The only score in the first half came on the first play of the second quarter as Upperman Quarterback Mason Young took it into the endzone on a three yard run. The P.A.T. by Caleb Robishaub was good and the Bees led 7-0 with 11:57 left in the second period.
Upperman took the opening kick-off of the third period and scored on an 88 yard return by Mason Young. Caleb Robishaub converted on the P.A.T. and the Bees led 14-0 with 11:45 left in the third period.
