The Valley Head Tigers defeated the Alabama School for the Deaf Friday night 45-8.

The Tigers scored first in the first quarter with a touchdown by junior quarterback Jordan Burt. A good PAT gave Valley Head a 7-0 lead early.

The Tigers continued pushing with junior running back Bryson Morgan with an 11-yard touchdown run on the play, however, extra point kick was blocked by the Silent Warriors.

Trinidad rushed six yards for the first touchdown of the second half of the game and also kicked the extra point at the 8:10 mark in the 3rd.

Waylon Collins later scored on a 10-yard touchdown carry, and the Tigers led 45-0 late in the third quarter.

The Silent Warriors then finally caught a break near the end of the third quarter when senior Cory Mackinnie rushed from the 34-yard line for the Warriors' only touchdown of the night.
