The Morgan City Tigers may have entered Friday’s game riding a 17-game losing streak, but the Tigers certainly didn’t play like a team struggling for a victory. The Tigers came out firing and by halftime had offensive, defensive and special teams’ touchdowns en route to a 48-12 victory against the Wolfpack.
