CTCS jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter and our offense responded with a touchdown. This was great to see our team did not hang their heads or feel sorry for themselves. They continued to fight and make this a close game. CTCS was held out of the endzone for the last 3 quarters of the game. The defense forced 3 turnovers.” Even though they fought hard, our Bears ultimately lost 14-12. Tabor Tyson scored a 42-yard touchdown run.
