  GUNTER — The Leonard Tigers put up a valiant effort against the Gunter Tigers taking an 11-6 halftime lead, but finally falling by a score of 19-11 on Friday night.

  Solomon Titus rushed for a team-high 107 yards on 23 carries for Leonard, which dropped to 6-2 for the season and 2-1 in District 7-2A play.

Gunter improved to 7-1 and 3-0.

  To open the contest Leonard drove to midfield. Facing fourth down, Ty McKinney boomed a 48-yard punt nailing the coffin corner at the two. On the next play Justin Baker tackled a Gunter back in the end zone for a safety for an early 2-0 lead.

  On the next Leonard possession Titus took a screen pass deep into Gunter territory. With Leonard unable to move the ball McKinney booted a 34-yard field goal to give Leonard a 5-0 advantage at the 3:21 mark of the initial period.

  Early in the second quarter Gunter completed a 61-drive with Spencer Lashley hauling in a 5-yard pass from Austin Gressett. The point after failed but Gunter led 6-5.

  Leonard countered when Justin Bennett sprinted in from 46 yards out.

  Starting on their own 14-yard line the Leonard Tigers drove to the Gunter 18 keyed by a Dylan Monck 60-yard run. But McKinney’s 31-yard field goal sailed wide to the left.

  With only two minutes elapsed in third quarter Garrett Hunter capped a 60-yard Gunter drive with a 21-yard sprint to the end zone. The pass for two failed and Gunter led 12-11 at this point.
