GOODRIDGE — On opening night, the Rothsay Tigers played close to the Goodridge/Grygla-Gatzke Chargers, but struggled to find the endzone in order to keep up with them as the Tigers fell on the road 35-0.

The Chargers would strike in the first quarter off a pass from Hunter McMillin to Carter Burks for a 38 yard catch and score. A missed extra point put G-G-G up six going into the second.

Rothsay, preparing for the air assault, could not stop Alan Prestebak from scampering 15 yards for the second score for the Chargers. As the half ended, the Tigers saw the home team walk into the locker room with a 13-0 lead.

In the third, Prestebak would find the endzone for a second score from 17 yards out.

The Chargers would run away with the game in the fourth quarter as McMillin would hit Burks for a 3 yard touchdown and Brandon Bakken would end the scoring with a 2 yard touchdown run.

Noah Brenden led the rushing attack for the Tigers with 34 yards on nine attempts, while teammate Brett Brenden pulled down four catches for 62 yards.

Defensively, the Tigers’ Logan Moen led the team in tackles with 11 and Taylor Oien had six.

The Tigers will be back in action Friday, Sept 6 as it hosts the Warren-Alvarado-Oslo Ponies in a 7 p.m. showdown.
