The Mansfield Tyger football team is off to a 3-0 start for the first time since 2010 after a 45-16 win over Marion Harding last Friday. This week the Tygers open OCC play at home as they face the 2-1 Clear Fork Colts at Arlin Field. Even though the Colts have opened up their offense as opposed to years past, according to coach Chioke Bradley they are still the rough and tumble Clear Fork Colts. Through three games, the Tygers have scored 132 points while giving up 65, the bulk of those late in the game against Lima Senior a 59-42 win at Lima. Senior High quarterback Jalen Reese has had a good three weeks going 60-90 for 873 yards and ten touchdowns with only two interceptions. Rushing wise, Mansfield's two leaders have been Tyquan Vickers with 259 yards with three touchdowns and Malon Samuel with 174 yards on 32 carries scoring one TD. Senior High's defense will look to put a stop to Colt quarterback Kadin Chrastina who went seven of 13 for 134 yards and a touchdown through the air while rushing for 64 yards in a 40-8 win over Shelby last Friday. Silas Finley also had a good night receiving the ball with six catches for 134 yards and a score. Back in 2010, it was Clear Fork who stopped the Tygers three game winning streak to start that season with a 28-20 win in Bellville. The Colts would then go on to win the OCC football title that season.
