The Tiger offense didn’t have to do much, but still contributed three scores in the lopsided victory, with Josh Faulk and Josh Williams each running for TDs and sophomore QB Lane Landry connecting with Travin Dural for the third.

VC’s troubles began on its first possession, with Tiger Brandon Chevalier recovering a fumble on the Terriers’ first play from scrimmage.
Although BB couldn’t capitalize on the turnover, VC muffed the ensuing punt and Tyren Alexander came up with the ball at the Tiger 40. A 29-yard Randall Menard-to-Travin Dural pass followed by a 17-yard run by Josh Faulk moved the Tigers deep into Terrier territory and Faulk capped the drive with a two-yard TD.
VC freshman quarterback Bailey Pere put the ball up on the first down after the kickoff and Josh Williams picked it off and rumbled 46 yards for a TD.
