The border battle heated up Friday night as the DeKalb County Tigers sloshed through the rain to put a damper on the Warren County Pioneer season by handing their rival a 19-14 loss in Smithville, leveling the series at seven apiece in a game that became an instant classic with a controversial ending. Despite holding a lead for most of the game, the Tiger win happened in comeback fashion, thanks to a miscue that ended up being the key to the game. The issue came in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter as the Tigers found themselves on the short end of a 14-13 score and facing a fourth and seven just inside Pioneer territory.
