Daeton Deife (33) carried the ball numerous times in Friday's win over Bridgeport played at Finney Field.

Friday the 13th was a very lucky day for the Odessa Tigers. Not that luck really had that much to do with it. The well-seasoned Tiger football team put together another powerful offense that overwhelmed Bridgeport September 13. Had Bridgeport's speediest running back not managed to break away from the field and streak to the end zone in the third quarter, the game would likely have been a shutout.

QB Camden Weber guided his team well, while backup QB Jett Nelson and freshman Collin Martin also saw quite a bit of playing time.

Chase Kissler gets good blocks and picks up a touchdown at his home field last week against Bridgeport.

Odessa's senior running backs did their usual superb job of moving the ball downfield and across the goal line. Marcus King led in yards gained with 40 rushing, 31 receiving, 12 on kickoff returns and 50 on punt returns for a total of 133. Sophomore Daeton Deife was right behind King with 116 yards, all rushing, as he was the primary ball carrier in the second half. Joshua Clark gained 103 yards, 40 rushing and 63 receiving.

Ten different players were able to put points on the board. Deife tied with King in putting up 24 points. Scoring one TD each were Weber on a quarterback keeper and Brady Walter, Chase Kissler and Clark on pass receptions. Two-point conversions were achieved by Nelson, Kissler, Walter and Joshua Valverde, while King added six and Clark added four extra points. Another two points were added by Colton Messer on a safety.

Mr. Defense Keith Strebeck once again was there to thwart the opposition. He led the team in tackles with seven (four solos and three assists). Clark and Jakob Starkel each had five tackles, while Weber, Kissler and Deife followed with four each.

Junior Pilot Weishaar pulled in an interception.
