Tigers open region play in Richmond Hill
Placeholder Image

Bradwell was set to open Region 2-AAAAAA play last week against Brunswick  before Hurricane Matthew rolled up the East Coast.

Now, the Tigers open the region Thursday against the Richmond Hill Wildcats (5-0) for the fifth year in a row.

The Tigers are in rarified air with multiple wins in a season for the first time since they went 4-6 in 2013. They hope to take advantage of a small region and advance to the playoffs for the first time since 2009, which was also the last time they had a winning record.

The Tigers are 2-2-1 as they are coming off a big 31-7 homecoming win over Lakeside on Sept. 30.

The teams are nearly even in scoring. The Tigers average nearly 20 points a game and the Wildcats average 27. However, the Tigers get most of their production on the ground with more than 240 yards per game. The Wildcats have a balanced attack with over 144 rushing yards and more than 186 passing yards per contest.

The Tigers and Wildcats have played only four times, once yearly since the 2012. Bradwell is 0-4 against the Wildcats.

The game will be at 7 p.m. in Richmond Hill at Wildcat Stadium.
