UNION — The Sims Tigers football teams continue to roll, as both the seventh and eighth grade football teams got wins this past week over DR Hill.

They defeated DR Hill 54-0 on Wednesday. In the first half, Gabriel Glass, JJ Thompson, Steven Means, Prescott Lindsey (2), all had touchdowns as the Tigers scored early and often to race out to a 40-0 halftime lead. Gabriel Glass and Ty Beatty each added another score after the half and Sims cruised to a 54-0 victory to remain undefeated on the season.
“We are super proud of these guys,” said Head Coach Mitchell Moss. “We finish up division play next week as we travel to Boiling Springs. These guys have already clinched the division, and hopefully we can work hard next week so we can focus on the championship game in two weeks.”

The coaching staff has done a great job of pushing and coaching these guys. We host Boiling Springs next week to try to finish second in the division.”
