  • Despite gaining considerably more yardage than their opponents, Maud was stuck with a 36-22 loss against Webbers Falls in a District C-4 contest Thursday night.
     
    The Tigers, now 4-3 overall and 2-2 in the district, out-rushed the Warriors 232-30. Webbers Falls rang up 155 passing yards as quarterback Darren Shanks completed 13 tosses, bringing the Warriors’ total output to 185 yards.
     
    Maud QB Andrew Browning connected on two of four attempts for 41 yards, bringing the Tigers’ total to 273 yards. Browning was picked off twice on the night.
     
    Webbers Falls struck first as Dusty Mason scored from 8 yards out with 7:55 remaining in the opening quarter. The Tigers responded with a 16-6 scoring advantage in the second quarter, beginning with Browning’s TD rush of 3 yards. He added his own 2-point conversion run.
     
    Browning scored again, from 6 yards out, with 5:26 left in the first half, and the hosts held a 16-14 lead at the break.
     
    Webbers Falls scored two consecutive TDs from there, beginning with an 11-yard TD toss from Shanks to Taylor Stephens late in the third quarter. Shanks found Dillin Coleman for a 45-yard strike with 10:23 left in the game, and Webbers Falls led 28-16 at that juncture.
     
    Maud’s Eric Browning made his way into the end zone from 3 yards out with 2:10 left to play, cutting Webbers Falls’ lead to 28-22, but that’s as close as the Tigers would get. The Warriors added the insurance TD with 1:36 to go as Shanks connected with Coleman for a 60-yard scoring completion.
