Sicily Island fell to 1-8 as the Tigers were on the short end of a 10-6 score at River Oaks in Monroe Friday.

“It’s always tough when you lose a close one,” said Sicily Island head coach Curtis Shavers.

The win was the 200th for River Oaks coach Robert Hannah.

Hannah has won two state championships (‘05, ‘10) while amassing his 200-113 head coaching record at River Oaks. Hannah was part of another state championship as a defensive coordinator years prior. He has served as the school’s headman since 1994.

Aidan Parker kicked a 30-yard field goal for the Mustangs in the first quarter, and quarterback Peyton Odom found the end zone on a 20-yard touchdown run in the third quarter to give the Mustangs a 10-0 lead.

Sicily Island’s lone score came on a run by O’Marion Jordan.

Sicily Island hosts Oak Grove Friday for Senior Night in its final game of the season.
