This week’s meeting between the McKinley High School Bulldogs and the Washington High School Tigers marks the schools’ 129th matchup. Football is so important to both communities, to the point that every year, each child born in Massillon, OH is gifted a stuffed Tiger from the Athletic Director at Washington High School. Both schools are having great seasons, with the Tigers currently undefeated and the Bulldogs with only one loss on the season. Look for an intense matchup that could come down to the final snap of the football to call it.
In a tight battle with McKinley, Massillon ended up coming out on top with a 24-17 victory. All that separated the teams was a one-yard touchdown run by Zion Phifer by Massillon with just under six minutes left in the game. The teams couldn't be separated early, each trading blows. In front of a packed house, though, the Tigers from Massillon would get that crucial touchdown late to put away the Bulldogs from McKinley.
