Diedrichsen Field in Tipton Friday night played host to West Branch's final non-district matchup of the 2019 regular season. Across the line of scrimmage from the Bears was a long-time foe in the Class 2A Tigers who came in with a 2-1 record. Both teams were looking to leave the field with some winning momentum as they head into district play next week. This week, however, was a chess match between two physical defenses and featured some timely turnovers and splash plays on offense.
Check out video highlights, photos, stats, and more from the 24-14 West Branch victory as they moved to 4-0 on the season.
