DCHS WR Bradley Miller tries to turn the corner against some stout defense by Watertown Friday night.
After containing the Purple Tigers on the opening drive Friday night, the DCHS Tiger team looked poised to capture its first win of the season after a 71-yard touchdown pass from QB Tyler Cantrell to Paxton Butler put the Tigers on the board first for a 6-0 lead with 9:36 on the clock.Tiger Andrew Fuson’s PAT was good for the 7-0 score.The game stayed promising until late in the third with the Tigers just 3-points shy, 24-21. With 7:18 left to play, it was still anyone’s ballgame.That’s when fortune favored the Purple Tigers, who dominated the second half and won the game 59-21, leaving DeKalb still searching for answers.“Turnovers were huge, we had five turnovers and they scored on every single one of them,” said Tiger Head Coach Steve Trapp. “We fumbled inside the 2-yard line, two punts, the two picks … if we don’t have those in the first half, we were making some big plays but we can’t survive on big plays and we’ve got to be able to execute offensively and we weren’t doing a lot of stuff right.”The Tigers second score in the first half came from Cantrell’s pass to Braxton Linder and a good PAT by Fuson with 1:16 left in the half.Bringing the game within grasp in the third was DeKalb’s Bradley Miller's 1-yard TD run with 7:18 remaining.
