Snyder 28, Monahans 21 — The Tigers bounced back from last week’s loss to rival Sweetwater with a huge victory, handing the Loboes their first defeat of the season.

Coach Wes Wood’s squad (6-2, 1-1) played an outstanding first half, using 21 second-quarter points to take a 28-0 lead into the halftime break, before Monahans (6-1, 0-1) rallied in the final two quarters to pull within a touchdown.

Snyder was outgained 430-282 and lost the turnover battle 2-1, but the Tigers made the plays they needed to hang on for the win, forcing a turnover on downs inside their own 20 in the final minute to preserve the victory. Jorge Martinez led the effort for SHS, rushing for touchdowns of 74 and 71 yards and intercepting a pass to set up a 37-yard TD reception by Tim Henderson.
