Pendleton, who was also the hero of last week’s Crosstown Clash victory after he jumpstarted the Tigers with a touchdown return on an interception, was at it again Friday night. This time he did it with a 50-yard punt return in the second quarter, giving NHS a 14-10 lead that it would never relinquish. The Tigers added a 46-yard field goal from Matt Hockett as time expired in the first half.
Things turned around in the second half. Young took the first snap of the half 61 yards for a touchdown to extend the Tiger lead, and though Moore stuck around, the Lions never got closer than seven points again.
Led by Bernhardy, Moore racked up 378 yards on the ground. Ryan Lujan added 73 yards on 16 carries.
Moore (0-2) will face Southmoore (1-1) at 7 p.m. Friday at Moore Stadium.
