In thier previous meeting with Cleveland, Cushing dominated the field, finishing with a final score of 42-7 in favor of the Tigers. Last Friday's game appeared to be headed in the same direction as Cushing Tigers triumphed with a 28-17 lead in the first half until the opposing defensive line rallied and closed the game at a final score of 31-28, Cleveland. The near miss brings Cushing Tigers to an even 2-2 record for the season.
In an interview shortly after the loss, Shupe reassures fans, "It was a tough loss. We've got a lot of work to do but we're gonna be fine. We're going to find a way."
