The scoring drive came after Morgan City recovered an Erath fumble in the Tigers’ red zone.
Tingle leads Morgan City’s run game this season with seven carries for 107 yards and a score.
Khai Hartley has completed 8 of 24 passes for 66 yards with two interceptions.
Devonta Grogan is Morgan City’s top receiver with three catches for 65 yards.
