MANY — Last year, the Many Tigers went to Winnfield and simply dominated.

The Winnfield Tigers were determined to do just that on Friday night as they returned to Many to open the season.

But it didn’t happen as top-ranked Many (1-0) racked up 422 yards of total offense, sparked by 404 yards on the ground as the Sabine Parish version of the Tigers decimated the Winn Parish Tigers, 30-0.

“We were physically outstanding,” an elated Jess Curtis said. “I really like the makeup of this team and I’m just so proud of our kids. They have stepped up and they get after it.”

Many had no trouble disposing of Winnfield (0-1), limiting its rivals to just 84 yards of total offense, the second year in a row Many has blanked Winnfield, while also holding them to less than 100 yards of offense.

Many was simply dominating on the ground as the senior running back tandem of James Carhee and Kentrell Maxie combined for 250 yards on 35 carries, while junior quarterback Tabarius Garner finished with 62 yards and a rushing touchdown in the third start under center.

Maxie gave the Tigers a 6-0 lead in the first quarter after a 12-yard touchdown run and Garner extended the advantage to 14-0 after a 38-yard touchdown scamper and two-point conversion.

Late in the second period, Maxie, who finished with 108 yards on 16 carries, dove into the endzone from a yard out for a 20-0 lead. Pquawn Williams scored on the two-point conversion, sending Many into the locker room with a commanding 22-0 advantage.

Many closed out its scoring in the third quarter as Garner completed an 18-yard touchdown pass to Williams. Carhee added the two-point conversion for a 30-0 cushion.

Winnfield couldn’t muster any offense in the game, being limited to just three first downs and only one pass completion.

“Our defense was physical and quick to the ball,” Curtis said. “When you can hold a Winnfield team to under 100 yards and don’t let them score, you have played well. And our kids really played well.”

Carhee led the Tigers with 142 yards on 19 carries, while Garner needed just nine carries to get 62 yards. Quan Sweet chipped in with 33 yards on seven totes.

Defensively, Darion Miller had six tackles, including two sacks, while A.J. Carter had an interception from his safety position.

The Tigers will take on Marksville next Friday night at home. Marksville is also 1-0 on the season.
