CANTON, Ohio -- The Lanesborough Tigers Friday dropped their second of two games at the World Youth Football Championships, falling to the Montana Outlaws, 30-0.
"The Outlaws had a very well-oiled passing attack that included four or five wideouts on each play, which is something the Tigers have never played defense against," Lanesborough coach Jason Pause said. "We eventually adjusted and improved our defense against the West Coast style offense, but not before getting down several touchdowns from some big pass plays."
In Friday's consolation game, the Tigers' offense had more success than it did in Thursday's tournament opener, but it was unable to finish drives and put the ball in the end zone.
Coming out on the losing side of the scoreboard diminishes neither the experience for the players nor the program's gratitude for the hundreds of people who contributed financially to the trip, Pause said.
"Very good and humbling experience for the team," he said. "I don’t think the score was a very good depiction of the game or competition on the field, but they where definitely the better team today. Many of our kids were still feeling sore from our first game, but we toughed it out and played our best."
The team heads back to the Berkshires on Saturday.
