Tidehaven Falls to East Bernard

Posted: Updated:

Coming off their first win of the season, Tidehaven fell short to East Bernard on Friday, losing 24-14 in a game played in El Campo due to poor weather and field conditions. 

The Tigers came out ready to play, jumping on top of an early Brahma fumble to set up a 42 yard touchdown that opened up the scoring. Things would prove difficult for Tidehaven after that, however, as East Bernard went on to score the final 21 points of the first half to take a 21-7 lead into the locker room. The hole proved too difficult for the Tigers to crawl out of, falling by 10 to their district rival to drop their record on the season to 1-5 overall, and 1-1 in district. 

The Tigers will travel to Van Vleck for a matchup with the Leopards next Friday. 

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - TaQuon Marshall ran for 175 yards and two scores to lead Georgia Tech to a 66-31 victory over Louisville on Friday night.
    
The Yellow Jackets (3-3, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) ran for a season-high 542 yards, the third-best total in school history and the second most ever yielded by the Cardinals (2-4, 0-3). Tobias Oliver, who relieved Marshall at quarterback late in the third quarter, ran for 108 yards and two scores on eight carries.
    
In their first nine drives, the Yellow Jackets scored eight touchdowns and a field goal. Then they got a 95-yard interception return for a score from Juanyeh Thomas with 2:18 left.
    
The 10th drive ended the game.
    
Georgia Tech took advantage of a couple Louisville misplays to jump out to a 14-0 lead midway through the first quarter. The Cardinals turned the ball over on downs at midfield on their first drive, and five plays later, Marshall's 33-yard score gave Georgia Tech the lead less than five minutes into the game.
    
Louisville fumbled at its 36 on the second play of its second drive. Five plays later, Marshall's 1-yard run doubled Georgia Tech's lead.
    
Jawon Pass completed 23 of 35 passes for 299 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Cardinals.
    
THE TAKEAWAY
    
Georgia Tech: The Yellow Jackets' win was big for more reasons than just the score. Not only did Georgia Tech break a three-game conference losing streak, but the win also marked its first away from home in nearly two years. The Yellow Jackets beat Kentucky in the 2016 TaxSlayer Bowl in Jacksonville, Florida, on Dec. 31, 2016.
    
Louisville: A bad season only looks to get worse for the Cardinals. Playing against a team that had lost its last three conference games, Louisville posted its worst home loss in the 20-year history of Cardinal Stadium and gave up the most points by a Bobby Petrino-led Cardinals squad.
