Donaldsonville football advances in playoffs

STAFF REPORT @dvillechief

The no. 21 Donaldsonville Tigers beat no. 12 Iowa 24-13 on the road last week to advance to the second round of the LHSAA 3A state playoffs.

Tigers’ junior quarterback Tyler Brown contributed to all four of Donaldsonville’s touchdowns — three rushing and one passing in the win.

Brown slipped, scrambled and pushed his way to a big first half that set the table in the Tigers’ win. He finished with 187 total yards as the Tigers (6-5) finished with 405 yards of offense and 22 first downs.

The Tigers will host no. 4 West Feliciana Friday night at the Floyd Boutte Memorial Stadium. Kick off is set for 7 p.m., with advance tickets available for $7 and they will be $8 at the gate.
