Cooper Hext closed out the scoring for the Tigers by hauling in a 10 yard pass from Gearen with the Hadley Cooley kick making the score 24-21. From that point, Rosepine tacked on two touchdowns to extend the score to 38-21 which the Rosepine defense held up and held the Tigers out of end zone the rest of the game.
