The lead grew to 12-0 with 42 seconds left in the first quarter on a 21-yard touchdown run by Harrison Pfister. The two-point conversion attempt failed.

In the second quarter, Tran connected with tight end Owen Clakely on a 38-yard touchdown pass to give the Tigers an 18-0 lead with 6:51 to play in the first half after an unsuccessful 2-point conversion attempt.

The only score in the second half was a touchdown pass from Tran to Pfister covering 37 yards. This time, the 2-point conversion attempt was successful and it was 26-0 with 6:13 to play in the third quarter. The Tigers made the lead stand up with an outstanding defensive effort.

“I was happy with the kids,” Patrick Taylor coach Kenny Bourgeois said. “They played hard, played physical and battled to the end. Our defense played phenomenal. We had a lot of stops for loss. Pfister and Ethan were good offensively.”

Patrick Taylor (3-0) puts its unbeaten record on the line next Friday at Kenner Discovery at Muss Bertolino Stadium.

“It is nice to be 3-0,” Bourgeois said. “Kenner Discovery will be a good team. Coach P.J. Sprunk does a good job. The goal is to be 1-0 this week.”
