Coming off their first win and first tie of the season, Bradwell Institute will host Lakeside-Evans Friday for homecoming.
Kickoff at Hokey Jackson Stadium is set for 7:30 p.m.
The Lakeside-Evans Panthers are the final team the Tigers will play before region action. The Panthers are another first time opponent for BI. Last season, the Lakeside Panthers went 5-5 overall and 5-4 in region 2-AAAAA.
The Panthers are senior heavy in all the skilled positions, including at quarterback, where Nick Reid starts, and in the backfield, with running backs Taveyon Grissom and Savon Stokes.
This year, the Panthers are struggling to a 0-4 start.
Last Friday, the Tigers (1-2-1) and Long County ended the game tied at 22. Bradwell primarily ran the ball, netting 180 yards.
The Tigers ground game was led by Keron Mason, who rushed for 75 yards, and Corth Nelson, who had 64 yards and two touchdowns. Senior Christian Evans also had a touchdown run.
Tigers Joshua Ingram and Isaiah Quarterman both had seven total tackles against the Blue Tide. Terrius Crimiel and Willie Miner both had five. Khaleel Fabian and Curvontae Bryant tied at four total tackles.
During halftime, Bradwell will crown its homecoming king and queen.
