This week the Stats Spotlight shines brightly on Kory Wiley, Crown Energy's Most Valuable Player. Wiley averaged over 5 yards per carry and had the Tigers' longest run against Berryhill on a 35 yard play. While Wiley did not find the end zone on Friday night, his running and receiving, along with stellar defensive play, were definitely highlights for Cushing.
Another area that was notable for the Tigers was the passing game. Kade Holderread was 12/23 passing with 3 TDs and 1 INT. His main target was England Honeybuss who had 7 catches for 101 yards and a touchdown. Trey Morris hauled in two passes, both for scores, and a total of 112 yards: the CCA Play of the Game was a 70 yard catch and run for a score in the 4th Quarter by Morris.
The Tiger defense gave up 168 yards to Berryhill, 95 on one play. Without that one long run, Berryhill had a slim 73 yards on the ground and did not manage much of a ground game until late in the 4th. Where they did have success was in the air. Stellar offensive line play slowed down the Tiger rush enough that Jacob Bailey, the Chiefs Quarterback, was able to find some holes in the secondary. He passed for 320 yards on 20 completions with 29 attempts: he had 3 TDs and 1 INT on the evening.
Cushing looks to rebound next week at Cleveland.
