The St. John-Hudson Tigers struggled against a tough Moundridge team and lost 54-6.

The Tigers football team struggled against a strong Moundridge team last Friday and were on the short end of a 54-6 loss.

Although the Tigers only managed one touch down, Cashe McVey scored on a running play, they did show improvement in some same areas.

"Moundridge was tough," said coach MikeSimpson. "I continue to think that we are getting better at blocking and improving our football IQ. I also think our effort and energy continue to improve.

“The boys are all working hard at being better and I appreciate that."

The Tigers next challenge against Little River doesn't get any easier. They are scoring an average of 41.3 points a game. The team has to concentrate on the basics and continue to improve.

"Little River is good. Very Good," Simpson said. "Our goals this week will be the same as always. We want to compete hard, improve over the week before and have some fun."

The Tigers loss leaves the team at 0-6 for the season.

They next take on Little River in a non-conference game on Oct. 12 at Little River.
