The Withrow Tigers were as sizzling as the temperatures on Thursday at UC’s Sheakley Athletics Center as they rolled past Turpin for 33-14 win in the Crosstown Showdown.
Withrow (1-0) took advantage of four turnovers and scored the game’s first 19 points to take control of the contest from the outset and never looked back.
Running back Justin Peyton scored three times and finished with 67 yards on nine carries. Quarterback Malik Bland ran for 32 yards and a score of his own and added 82 yards through the air. Shaqui Hinkston also rushed for a score in the win.
Terry Frost and Kendall White each had an interception while Reggie Howard and Jerm Carter Jr. each recovered a fumble for the Tigers.
Adrian Baker led all rushers with 76 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries for Tuprin (0-1). Teammate Spencer Singh added 42 yards and a score of his own on 16 carries.
Tuprin will look to turn things around next week when they welcome Wyoming to Spartan Stadium while Withrow makes the trip to Brown Stadium to take on Anderson.
