First quarter gets started with the Panthers punting the ball to the Tigers. Its Tigers ball but it is quickly fumbled back over to the Panthers. The Tigers defense tried to hold strong and not allow the Panthers to score but the Dillard quarterback found the end zone on a 4th down. The Panthers lead 7-0. The Tigers get the ball back on a long kick return to put the offense in a good starting position. But the Tigers lost the ball, allowing the Panthers to score yet again to put the score at 14-0 as the clock is winding down in the first half. Just before the end of the 2nd quarter Dillard High School finds the end zone yet again with the Panthers running in the locker run for halftime with a 22-0 lead. Halftime is over, and the Panthers are ready to finish this game off. The third quarter saw no points as the teams got ready for the 4th quarter. The Tigers came out strong scoring their first touchdown at the beginning of the 4th. They missed the extra point attempt, but it would not have mattered anyway as the Panthers hold on to win 22-6.
