NEW LONDON —

As expected the Troup Tigers redeemed themselves after a lackluster performance in Zero Week by walloping West Rusk's Raiders 48-16 at Bruce Bradshaw Stadium in New London Friday night in a battle between Oil Belt rivals.

The Tigers (1-1) jumped out to a 35-0 lead at halftime and never looked back as Troup extended its advantage in the all-time series 15-11 with the win.

The Raiders slipped to 0-2 in the new season as a result of the loss.

Troup stays on the road next week, taking on the Bulldogs of Quitman.
