Tanner Matlock led the charge with four quarterback sacks. Also Austin Ball, Tim Scrape, Cody Sugden and Steven Campbell got in on the sack attack as they all had one sack each.
Outside linebackers Ruben Trujillo and J.P. Garner shut down the Falcons outside running game with bone crushing hits all night long.
Ball also had two outstanding fumble recoveries and safety Derek Fisher had a spectacular interception that was nearly returned for a touchdown.
Defensive linemen Jeremy Scrape, Jason Milligan, Isaiah Stein and Michael Gamberg helped stop the Falcons running attack as the defense gave up only one first down on the second to last play of the game.
Offensively, the Tigers had a huge night as linemen Zach Puzey, Gregory Smith, Max McDuffee, Aaron Scott, Alan Bolanos and Jesse Urteaga pummeled the defensive line in opening huge holes for the Tiger running machine.
Receivers Colton McKone and Christian Neilander had great down-field blocks in helping the Tigers score five touchdowns. Four different players scored points for the Tigers as Ryan Simmons had a touchdown and two extra points.
