KOSSUTH -- The weather certainly played a big factor in the matchup between the Nettleton and Kossuth Friday night, with the Tigers leaving Larry B. Mitchell Stadium with a 6-0 win.

As it continued to pour down rain, Nettleton quarterback Dakota Cruber tossed a 13-yard pass to wide receiver Levert Jernigan at the 3:26 mark of the fourth quarter for the lone score of the game.

“The Water Bowl,” as it has been dubbed, was Kossuth's fourth loss of the season, with only one notch in the “W” column.

Early on it seemed as if the Tigers couldn't get anything going on the offensive side of the ball as they netted a total of -3 yards on four possessions, which were all three and outs.

Most of the yardage the Aggies gained was straight up the middle as their passing game was left under wraps for most of the game.

Hopefully, the upcoming bye week will be time enough for them to try and turn it around as they head to Ecru on Oct. 4 to take on North Pontotoc in the Division 1-3A opener for both teams.

Aside from the season-opening 28-0 loss to Corinth, the last three losses by the Aggies have been decided by a total of only 14 points.
