The Tigers held Clark Atlanta to 25 rushing yards and recorded two interceptions and two sacks. “We knew we had our work cut out for us,” said Benedict head coach Mike White.
“This team here can throw the ball extremely well.” “We haven’t been playing great pass defense, so it was a great effort by the whole pass rush and the secondary to hold these guys under their average.”
Substitute Tigers quarterback, Christian Lisby, completed 20-of-30 passes for 200 yards, a season high for the Tigers. Wide receiver Okechi Ntiasagwe caught a season high 10 passes for 118 yards.
Defensively, Xavier George lead the way with five tackles, while Rickym Holmes had four tackles.
For the Panthers, the game marks the first time this season, the offense did not score a touchdown.
Clark Atlanta punted their first seven possessions, but also forced Benedict into five punts and a fumble in their first five series.
