On the second play from scrimmage, J.P. McComb finds Ziyon Strickland on a 66-yard pass play which puts the Tigers on the board first with a 7-0 advantage. On the Rockets’ first possession of the game, Titusville marched down to the 1 yard line of Sharon before being denied without any points as a sack (by Jaquan Waller and Zach Dignall) and an incompletion proved to alter their fortune.

Sharon has now won six of their last seven outings to improve to 8-3 on the season. Tigers’ running back Jordan Wilson gained 122 yards on 20 carries and 2 touchdowns. Ziyon Strickland hauled in 5 passes for 111 yards (2 TDs) while Jeremiah Norris caught 4 for 61 (TD).
