State Championship Versus Mound City 11-25-11
The Tigers traveled down to St. Louis to rematch with the Mound City Panthers in the 8-man State Championship at the Edward Jones Dome.
The Tigers came into the game wanting to prove that they were without a doubt the best team in 8-man football, and by the end of the game, there was no doubt that they were.
Defensively, the Tiger's D-Line was dominant throughout most of the game, especially in the 2nd half. They manhandled Mound City's offensive line and were able to pressure Mound City Quarterback Lucas Schwang all day.
Offensively, the Tigers simply had too much speed for Mound City to deal with, as they easily broke off several long touchdown runs, including a 73 yard touchdown run, which was the longest run in the history of the 8-man championship game.
The final Score of the game was Worth County: 50 Mound City: 20
The Tigers finished the season as State Champions with an undefeated record of 13 wins and 0 losses.

However, in this game the Tigers were able to take advantage of several miscues by the Stanberry defense early in the game to get some easy scores. The Tigers went into halftime with a comfortable lead, but by the middle of the 3rd quarter the Bulldogs had started a comeback and were able to get within 14 points of the Tigers. The momentum of the game changed though, when Stanberry fumbled the ball inside the Tigers 10 yard line and the Tigers were able to recover it. From that point on, the Tigers controlled the game and were able to score once more before finally running out the clock.

The Tigers had difficulty running the ball for most of the night, but they were able to throw the ball fairly well. The Tigers were down for the majority of the game, but a turning point came late in the fourth quarter.

The Tigers had less than 2 minutes left to score. They managed to drive the field and they scored with under a minute remaining. Stanberry still had time though. With less about 35 seconds left they were able to get to their own 35 yard line. Their drive then stalled, and on 4th and 1 they decided they were going to try and catch the tigers off guard by throwing the ball to the endzone and trying to go for the win. Luckily the Tigers were able to cover the play perfectly and the pass fell incomplete, giving the Tigers the ball. From there, Worth County just ran out the clock.
The final score of the game was Worth County: 38 Stanberry: 32
