The Hurricane Tigers welcomed the West Jordan Jaguars on to the new turf of Dixie State College Friday night for what was sure to be a cat fight. The Tigers will play on the campus of Dixie State for home games until the new football field and construction can be completed.
The Tigers wasted no time showing their claws as Brian Scott ran the ball into the endzone twice in the first quater. Hurricane’s defense was able to hold the Jaguars to eight points going into the half. The highlight of the first half was an 80-yard interception return from Hurricane’s Kellen Seely.
The Tigers forced four fumbles, intercepted the ball three times, and tamed the Jags, keeping them to only eight points per quarter for the second half. Hurricane’s shining star Brian Scott rushed 24 times for 182 yards and scored four touchdowns for the Tigers.
Hurricane took the game with a score of 48 to 36. The Tigers will hope to continue their winning preseason when they travel to Hunter High School next week.
