It was tough sledding all day long for the Peewee Tigers Saturday when DeKalb traveled to Baxter to take on conference rival Monterey Wildcats at Cornerstone.  The stingy Wildcat Defense, paired with the inclement weather helped prevent the Tigers from finding any type of rhythm all game long.  Shocked by a 60 yard touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage by Monterey, the Tigers seemed never able to recover.

Monterey was able to put a touchdown on the scoreboard, each quarter, in the first three quarters of the game before DeKalb’s defense bowed up and held the Wildcats scoreless in the fourth.
