Howard completed 17 of 19 passes for 198 yards and three touchdowns for the Tigers offense.

Running back Anthony Knight lead the rushing attack for the Tigers with 82 yards on 19 carries. Knight also played a role in the air attack with 47 yards and six catches including a touchdown catch for the early 7-0 lead.

Howard also connected with receiver Kenny Torrence, who had five catches for 97 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

The offense was without receiver Sam Boyd and running back Denzel Foster. Both were out due to injuries.

Bryce Smith and Isaac Colunga lead the Tigers’ defense with seven tackles apiece.

Rustlers quarterback Chris d’Entremont lead the Golden West offense with 284 yards and two touchdowns. He also had an interception that was caught by defensive back Darique Taylor.

With the win, the Tigers move to 10-1 overall this season and will meet the undefeated Fullerton College Hornets at Fullerton on Nov. 30 for the SCFA Championship.
