“Remember the Senior Night when we beat Mountain Grove?” That was the vision Houston football coach Eric Sloan gave his football team prior to Friday night’s game with Mountain Grove. And they delivered.
Behind a pair of touchdowns from Paydon Dixon and 114 rushing yards by senior Gavin Alston, the Tigers beat the Panthers 24-14 at Tiger Stadium. The victory was the first for Houston in the series since 2001. They also won their third South Central Association game in a single season for the first time since 2008.
