The Tahlequah Tigers didn’t panic, not even when they were shooting themselves in the foot and all the momentum was against them.
They erased two fourth-quarter deficits and Tate Christian’s 6-yard touchdown pass to Tristan King in overtime lifted the No. 2 Tigers to a 35-28 win over No. 6 Collinsville in a thrilling District 5A-4 first-place showdown Friday before about 3,5000 spectators at Sallee Field.
Dae Dae Leathers carried 30 times for 203 yards and two TDs, helping pace the Tigers to their first 6-0 start in 28 years. Unofficially, Leathers has 959 yards in his senior season and is 39 yards shy of reaching 3,000 career yards.
