Frederick Bombers dominate the Electra Tigers


By Fabian Reyes



The Bombers hosted their second game in a three-game home-stand playing host to the Electra Tigers from South of the Red River.

Historically it has been since the fall of 1987 since the Bombers had beaten the Tigers having only played them six times during that time frame. The Bombers received the opening kick-off and made quick work of the understaffed Tigers.

Coach Bret Tyler was heavy handed on the running with RB Jeremiah Adams carrying a majority of the load for the Bombers all night long. The Bombers capped the opening drive with a little trickery as RB Christian Reyes through a half-back pass to wide-open receiver Darrius Randle for the 34-yard touchdown. Jonathon Barrera hit the PAT and gave the Bombers a 7-0 lead after the first series.

The Tiger defense and penalties stalled the next few drives of the Bombers before Ethan Flores kicked a 25-yard field goal for the Bombers in the second quarter to end the scoring in the first half.

The Bomber defense kept the Tigers tamed the entire night, never letting the Tigers into the red-zone. The Bomber stable of running backs would solidify things after the half as RB Christian Reyes and Alex Vera both scored on runs in the third quarter.

Jeremiah Adams scored from 11 yards out in the 4th quarter to end all scoring and give the Bombers a 31-0 lead win over the Tigers.

The Bombers are scheduled to play host to future district foe Mangum Tigers next week. The Bombers will also have Homecoming festivities this week including a Thursday evening bonfire and a parade on Friday afternoon. Make plans to come out and support the Bombers.
