The Tigers broke their three-game losing streak against Carson with a 31-17 victory Thursday night in Carson City.

The win gives the Tigers a 5-4 record, their first winning season since 2012.

The game essentially turned in the final 1-minute 52-seconds in the third quarter when Douglas scored 10 unanswered points in a span of 19 seconds to wipe out Carson’s 17-13 lead and go ahead 24-17.

Josh Gurule kicked a 42-yard field goal to cut Carson’s lead to 17-16, and on the first snap following the kick-off, Carson quarterback Daniel Morrison went back to pass and tried to hit Luke Myers on an out route. Harker stepped in front of the pass and returned it 30 yards for a score.
