Tigers defend sectional title in rout

Moments after senior quarterback Erick Hebauf connected with sophomore wide receiver Isaiah Thacker for a 20-yard touchdown on its first possession, the Triton Central football team gave up a 63-yard kickoff return by Providence Jaxon Murphy, who ran it back to the 17-yard line.

It was just about the only significant mistake made by the Tigers in a 35-7 win – yet it didn’t cost them a point.

On the next play, Murphy tried to pitch the ball back to senior Jeremy Gettelfinger, but was off target on the lateral. Triton Central’s Jayden Mays pounced on the loose ball to give it back to the Tigers’ offense, and from there, the Tigers took over.
