The Sr. High Mansfield Tiger football team traveled to Atkins yesterday for a “7 on 7” tournament. In the end, the Tigers went undefeated only to have the semi-finals cancelled by Thunderstorms that appeared late in the day.
The Tigers faced opponents from Little Rock Central (Score 10-7), Clinton (Score 21-7),Two Rivers (Score 30-0) and Sylvan Hills (Score 10-7) and proved to the coaches, and team that their hard work and commitment to Tiger Pride is strong, and paying off.
Without the cancellation of the storms, Mansfield would have faced off against Atkins, Springdale Har-Ber, and Conway Christian in the semi-finals where a Championship game would have followed.
Head Coach, Craig Bentley stated “We’re very proud of this RED TIGER team and what they accomplished. Our boys were upset they didn’t get to finish what they started. Defense gave up only 21 points in 4 games, which is almost unheard of in 7 on 7. QB and WR’s were on all day. Zero interceptions thrown by us the entire day which is also tough to do. Hoping we can carry this into a big week next week leading into our break. We’d also like to give a huge thanks to all the Tiger Mom’s who donated food for our lunch. That made a tremendous difference.”
