Two red zone stops make the difference
Tyrone’s defense set a tone early last night against Clearfield that it wasn’t going to be pushed around like so many of the Bison’s opponents before had. Instead, the unit was going to push back, and coming off a game in which it yielded a season-high 31 points, maybe it had something to prove.
But tone-setting and self-assurance are first-quarter concerns in the game of football. With the line, existential concerns like those fly by the wind. In those moments, the it all becomes pretty simple: make plays.
That’s where the Golden Eagles found themselves twice last night at Bison Stadium, and each time the defense rose to the occasion, shutting down the Bison on fourth down plays to preserve a 21-14 victory that put Tyrone back in the mix for the Mountain League championship.
