In a battle of Tigers on a steamy evening in Willard, it was the hosts’ rushing attack that roared loudest.

Willard (1-1) controlled the trenches and rushed for three touchdowns to stampede over visiting Ozark, 40-3, on Friday night.

Willard quarterback Reece Dawson rushed for two scores and tossed for two more at the helm of a potent Tigers’ attack.

“Our line upfront, we got seniors, we got guys that do a really good job – we knew we had an advantage there,” said Willard head coach Brock Roweton.
