The Reedley College Tigers improved their season record to 4-3 with a 42-14 win over Cabrillo College Saturday night in Aptos.reedleycollege

It’s a little hard to come up with an accurate assessment of any progress the Tigers are making after Saturday’s win, because they played an opponent that was clearly inferior in every aspect of the game, with the exception of the punter.

Going into Saturday’s game, the combined record of the three teams the Tigers had beaten in 2015 was 3-15. The combined record of the three teams the Tigers have lost to was 15-3. So, it’s obvious that Reedley can beat the teams that they should beat, but they have trouble against better

Saturday’s win was never in doubt. The Tigers had trouble moving the ball on offense in the first quarter, yet they led 14-0 after fifteen minutes, thanks to an interception return TD by Kobe Marfo, and a fumble recovery TD by Clay Jones.

The offense finally got going in the second quarter, sparked by long touchdown runs by running backs Robert Avery and Javin Harrison. Quarterback Austen Bray also threw two pretty touchdown passes; one to James Jackson Jr., and one to Caleb Horton.

The Tiger defense was outstanding again as well.

As I said, it’s hard to tell where the Tigers are, but we will find out over the last three games of the season, beginning this Saturday at six, when the Tigers host Merced College.
