Tigers were no match for Brusly as they dominated the game with a victory of 48-21.

Donaldsonville Coach Terrence Williams gathered his players in an end zone after what he called a good win on last Friday night as the Tigers defeated Brusly 48-21 in Brusly territory.

His team came out strong in the first half and dominated until the end. Before their departure, Coach Williams wanted to remind them of their goal for the season, not just for the win of the game.

“It felt good to win the first game of the season, especially by so many points,” said Williams.

The Tigers lost 17 seniors last year, including running back Bryant Dunn who was a key player for the Tigers, but Williams said his team is still up for the fight.

“We don’t try to prove them wrong, we have bigger goals to accomplish then worrying about those who doubt us after losing 17 players.”

Quarterback Devon Breaux completed a total of 171 passing yards with two touchdowns. Tre Brown rushed for a total of 91 yards and added two touchdowns for the Tigers. Titus Howard received 128 yards and also added two touchdowns for the Tigers victory.

Williams stated that the key players to a successful season are Devon Breaux and Robert Gibson because they both emerged as leaders on their defective sides of the ball. The Tigers are hopeful for a state championship this season, and Williams feels his team has the recipe to succeed.

The Tigers take on White Castle this Friday at Floyd Boutte Memorial Stadium at 7 p.m.
