After a Bye last week, Commerce returned to action Friday night at Van Alstyne, as the Tigers tried to break a 3 game losing streak against a hot Panther's team.
The first 2 quarters featured a field goal and a touchdown by both opponents, leaving the score knotted at 10 at the halftime break. Second half action included a quick touchdown by Van Alstyne to take the lead, and the Tigers tying it up again early in the 4th quarter. Van Alstyne retook the lead with less than 5 minutes left in the game, but Commerce saw their hopes dashed on an interception by The Panthers with only 2:30 left in the game.
Final Score: Commerce- 17 Van Alstyne- 24.
