Despite two delays due to heavy rains and lightning, the DeKalb County
Tigers and Warren County Pioneers finished up their high school season
opener, Friday night, with the game wrapping up just a few minutes before
midnight. When all was said and done, the Pioneers dealt the Tigers their
third straight season-opening loss, with a 24-0 decision at Nunley Stadium
in McMinnville.

locker rooms. An hour and a half later, after heavy rains soaked the
stadium and drove several fans away, the game resumed. When it did, Tiger
quarterback, Hunter Poteete, threw an interception on the first Tiger play

field goal range. Kicker, Tony Garibaldi, nailed a 35-yard field goal to
