Tuttle second half closes Bethany's season

In a tail of two very different halfs, Tuttle defeated Bethany to continue their quest for a stage championship.

Bethany opened the scoring on a Kyle Duke 57 yard touchdown run after the Bronchos defense held the Tigers on a third down conversion. 

After the Tigers caused Bethany to go three-and-out, Tuttle went 75 yards to the endzone. Jesse Gregory found a seam and scored on 40 yard touchdown run to lock it up at 7-7. Bethany answered after Bronchos quarterback Kyle Duke, found receiver Dalton Stout on a 19 yard touchdown pass but the Bronchos missed on the extra-point conversion. Tuttles Jesse Gregory found a hole on the Tigers next drive and went 40 yards to put the Tigers on the Broncho 23 yard line. A field goal made it a 13-10 game in Bethany's favor at the half.

Tuttle running back Morgan Neal busted through the middle and scored on a 69 yard touchdown run to put Tuttle ahead for the first time in the game early in the second half. 

Neither team scored again until Tuttle running back Jesse Gregory found the endzone on a 33 yard touchdown. Another touchdown sealed the game 31-13. 

The Tigers move on to play in the second round on Nov. 22.
