The 6th and 7th Graders played 2 quarters against the Vikings putting together a good first outing.

Tschacher and Penfield both tallied 6 points apiece to lead the Tigers in scoring. The 6th Graders of Wyatt Stauffer, Ben Eiden, Gage McCall, Kade Clark, Casey Kremers, Dmitri Richards, and James Stone saw their first playing time of the year for the Tigers.
