The Reedley College Tigers suffered their first defeat of the season when they fell to the Contra Costa College Comets 37-28, Saturday afternoon in San Pablo.

The Tigers started strong, moving out to a 14-3 lead in the second quarter, but poor defense by the secondary, a couple of interceptions from quarterback Austen Bray, and the lead was gone by halftime.reedleycollege

The Tigers had several chances to retake the lead in the second half, but were unable to capitalize and suffered a defeat to an opponent the Tigers would all agree they should have beaten.

Bray finished with two TD passes and over 300 yards though the air, but four interceptions marred the day for the sophomore from Kingsburg High.

Another area the Tigers must work on is deep coverage by the secondary. On several occasions, the corners and safties allowed Conta Costa receivers to get behind them, and Comet quarterback Cameron Burston found them for easy scores.

The Tigers will be on the road again this coming Saturday as they travel to Gilroy to face Gavilan College at five pm.
