Tigers drop Homecoming to Mt. Pleasant

Fayetteville High School's Tigers are still looking for their first win of the season after going down to Mt. Pleasant on Homecoming night, 40-0.

And to add to the Tigers struggles the injury bug possibly took four starts out of the already thin line up. Coach Alvin Palmer could be looking for a fifth string quarterback.

Isaac Pace, Graham Pace, Jalen Buchanan and KeVonte Thomison are all awaiting test results as to the extent of the injury.

"All we can do is keep working," Coach Alvin Palmer said. "No one would ever anticipate the number of key injuries we've had - we're scrambling to see who we go with at quarterback pending the condition of the Pace brothers injuries."

"We've got to play with what we've got and do the best we can," he added. "Moore Co. is coming in here Friday night and it's going to be a tough game. They run the Wing-T and it's tough to stop."

Against Mt. Pleasant the Tigers kept it close trailing 7-0 at the end of one. But the visiting Tigers had a big second frame putting 27 point on the board - City trailed 34-0 at the break.

Mt. Pleasant put the mercy-rule in effect early in the third up 40-0.

The final frame was scoreless giving Mt. Pleasant the win.

This week the Tigers host region rival Moore Co. Kick off is at 7 p.m.
