The number-four ranked Metter Tigers will be back in action this Friday night as they welcome the McIntosh County Academy Buccaneers into The Jungle for a big region game.
The Tigers come into the match-up with a record of 6-0 overall and 3-0 in region play. The Buccaneers are 2-3-1 overall and 2-1 in the region. Both teams will be coming off of a bye week.
The Bucs’ two region wins came against Bryan County and Claxton. They defeated Bryan County 42-0 and Claxton 32-6. They lost against ECI two weeks ago by a score of 17-6.
