Commerce fans who intend to make the Friday drive to Pottsboro for this week's Tigers football game should probably carpool. That's the message Pottsboro Superintendent Dr. Kevin Matthews communicated to Commerce ISD late last week:
After a string of 4 losses, the Commerce Tigers tried to turn their luck around versus the visiting Raiders of Sunnyvale on Friday night, playing without their injured quarterback Sam Wells.
The scoring in the first half of the game began with Sunnyvale posting a field goal early in the first quarter to take a 0-3 lead, but The Tigers answered with a touchdown in the 2nd to go on top 7 to 3. The momentum switched to Sunnyvale's favor for the rest of the half, however, capitalizing on multiple Tiger fumbles with 2 more touchdowns. At halftime, it was Commerce- 7, Sunnyvale- 24.
