Battery Creek got off to a great start but couldn’t maintain the momentum, falling to visiting Swansea in its first game under coach Walter Wilson.
The Dolphins forced a three-and-out on the first series, and Eddie Dean’s blocked punt set up Trey Chancey for a 1-yard touchdown run and a 6-0 lead, but the Tigers quickly answered.
Swansea took control with two quick scores late in the first quarter and tacked on another touchdown with 3:13 left in the half for a 20-6 halftime lead. Neither team scored in the third quarter, but the Tigers sealed the win with a long drive capped by a touchdown with 2:56 left to make it 27-6.
Gabe Singleton scored a late touchdown for the Dolpihins.
