As we reach the midway point of the high school football, this week we find the Oakville Tigers traveling to Northwest to take on the Lions. Both programs come into this match up 1-3, but experiencing different results a week ago.
Last week, the Oakville Tigers earned their first win of the season, defeating the Fox Warriors, 21-14. Oakville’s balanced attack proved to be too much for the Warriors. The Lions will look to slowdown Oakville’s dual threat quarterback, senior, Carvon Robinson. Robinson shredded the Warriors defense for 224 yards and 2 touchdowns in the air, while gaining 114 yards on the ground and adding the game winning 22 yard touchdown run with less than two minutes to go to seal the win for the Tigers.

The Lions record, however, took a hit on Homecoming as they lost 40-0 to the #5 Rebels of Park Hills Central*. Click here for the replay … The Lions had a hard time getting anything going against the physical front seven of the Rebels. One week after gaining 371 rushing yards in a victory, the Lions were only able to muster 52 rushing yards and only 141 total yards. A bright spot for the Lions was the play of senior linebacker, Minor Jones. Jones had 13 total tackles, a forced fumble, and was constantly fighting off double teams to be in on almost every stop for the Lions.
