The St. John-Hudson football team was overpowered by Little River and suffered a 50-0 loss.

St. John-Hudson Tigers were hit by another strong team when Little River dominated and handed the Tigers a 50-0 loss.

While Little River was overpowering in the first quarter, the Tigers defense gelled for the rest of the game.

"I thought all the boys responded well after we settled down. I thought we competed hard until the end," said coach Mike Simpson. "We were able to forge several punts in the second quarter which was an improvement."

Injures caused some changes in the line up but the team adjusted to the moves.

"I was pleased with all the boys and their effort. We had several injuries so we had to move kids around. The boys responded well to that and we were able to adjust on the fly," Simpson said.

Improvement is always the goal for the Tigers and remains so as they prepare to take on Skyline on Friday.

"We want to continue to improve this week. We need to be more competitive from the beginning of the game," Simpson said. "We are excited to celebrate senior night and to complete against a very good Pratt Skyline team
