Unfortunately for the blue and white it was the Orange and Blue that came away with a 49-48 win !

The name for the Blue Tigers  was  "Morris"  as  in  Senior QB  Jacob Morris who completed 18 passes for 301 yards and 4 TD's , While Senior  RB Morris Henderson went to the house 3 times and one time was 91 yards on a kick off return!
