Bradwell Institute is out of action tonight as the Tigers enter their bye-week.
BI is 0-3 overall and 0-1 in Region 3-AAAAA after last Friday’s 28-7 loss to Richmond Hill at home.
The Tigers tied the game, 7-7, in the third quarter, but on their next offensive drive, they coughed up the ball. The Wildcats converted that to a touchdown and never relinquished the lead.
“They were a stronger team and they eventually wore us down, but it is the same thing I’ve been saying for weeks — we need to do what we are supposed to do. We can’t have the turnovers,” Tiger head coach Greg Hill said, adding the turnover gave all the momentum to the visiting team.
Hill said they will use the time off to work on getting the players adapted to his style of offense. The team also will look to strengthen its defense when preparing to go up against region powerhouse Ware County next Friday in Waycross.
The coach said the Tigers have a few bumps and bruises to mend but nothing major.
“We will get a chance to heal and this week we will focus on getting BI better … correct our mistakes and get to going to where we need to go,” Hill said.
The game is 7:30 p.m. Sept. 26, at Ware County
