Best team performance from Week 8: Lake Arthur Tigers
The Tigers picked up their first win over Welsh in seven years this past week as Lake Arthur downed its arch-rival, 24-13. The Tigers used a fourth-quarter comeback to earn the win as running back Torrell Levias scored two touchdowns in the final period. Levias was key in the win as the senior rushed for over 170 yards in the game and scored three times. The Tiger defense allowed the fewest points to Welsh in 20 years.
