Tigers fall short in home opener
The Melrose Dutchmen upended Morris Area / Chokio-Alberta 14-6 on Friday, Aug. 29 during the season opener in Morris.
Melrose was unable to get by the Morris defense on the ground, so the Dutchmen went to the air for both touchdowns. Blake Gerads was credited for both TDs, and quarterback Matt Beste had the successful two-point conversion in the third that put the Dutchmen up 14-0 just two minutes after the second half started.
