The Macon Tigers opened Class 3, District 6 action Thursday night against the Boonville Pirates. The field was a sloppy mess, but that didn't slow down the Tiger attack. Macon came up with five defensive takeaways, and would use that momentum to rout the Pirates 35-6.
Macon would come up with a score in both the first and second quarters to take a 14-0 lead at halftime. After the Tigers tacked on another TD, Boonville would get on the board, making the score 21-6. Macon would score the final two touchdowns of the night to secure the win.
The Pirates end the season with a record of 4-6. Macon improves to 8-2 overall and has earned a rematch with the Centralia Panthers in the Semifinals next Wednesday night in Centralia. The Panthers claimed a convincing 49-14 win over Macon in the final week of the regular season, and the Tigers would love some payback.
