The Morse Tigers (9-4) from the very get-go of the season in the SDFNL Scrimmage against El Capitan showed their speed with UCLA commit Shamar Martin and tonight used it again to dominate the Christian Patriots (10-2) from the beginning.

It was a far cry from the previous meeting of the two squads a few weeks ago when the Patriots came back to beat the Tigers to claim the league crown.

The duo of Martin and Isiah Thompson pounded their way through the defense of the Patriots and eventually, Thompson punched it in to give the Tigers the early lead.

Martin for the Tigers would later score just before the first half expired as he found the end zone on an 11-yard run and would, later on, seal the victory with a 50-yard touchdown scamper.

 

The duo of Martin and Thompson would finish with over 220 yards combined on the night with Martin cutting through the Patriots defense for 135 yards on 16 carries and the 2 touchdowns while Thompson contributed 91 yards on 19 carries and the one touchdown.

With the revenge victory, the Tigers will face Central Union in the Championship game.
