Jimmy Watson Shreveport Times Published 12:47 AM EST Nov 10, 2018 BENTON – Sometimes it’s the simplest of plays that can cause a team trouble. Benton’s defense had been its strong point for most of the season. When the going got tough in narrow victories against North DeSoto, Huntington, Woodlawn and Minden, the defense did its thing to give the Tigers a 7-1 run to close the regular season. And that led to a No. 16 seed and home game to open the postseason. Even though the Tigers made a run late with a trio of 1-yard touchdown runs by quarterback Clint Lasiter, Moore was left to console a solid group of Tiger seniors, who made their way to their coach one after another to get a hug and a few words of condolence following the final horn. It was a dramatic scene, but one that was repeated a multitude of times across Louisiana Friday night as the first round of playoffs turned thousands of seniors into paying guests the next time they expect to enter their respective stadiums.
