7th Grade OCC Championship Arlin Field
Madison vs Mansfield
Mansfield Wins 7th Grade OCC Football Title
The 7th grade Mansfield Tygers impressed as they pulled away from the Madison Rams
24-14 during the OCC Championship game on Tuesday night.
The game was back-and-forth with Tygers QB Nathan Dismuke rushing for the first score of the game and RB Jakari Favors adding the 2-point conversion for an 8-0 advantage. Madison would take a 14-8 lead into the half, though, scoring on a rushing touchdown and pick-six just before the break.
Mansfield's defense was fierce in the second half, keeping the Rams off the board as Dismuke completed a long TD pass to Isaiah Darson to claim the lead and rushed for another to seal the victory. Dismuke would account for all 3 Tyger TD's (2 Rushing, 1 Pass), receiving praise from both head coaches for his performance after the contest.
The Tygers finish the season as undefeated league champions, handing their cross-city rivals their only OCC loss of the year.
