TIOGA — Chase Evans had 26 carries for 170 yards and a touchdown for Tioga but the Bulldogs finished their season with a 41-7 loss against Alvord.

Tioga (1-8, 0-5) was down 28-7 at half-time.

Jacob Johnson ran for 182 yards and three touchdowns while Corbyn Cornell chipped in 101 yards and three touchdowns on the ground for Alvord (4-4, 4-1).

The district built in a double-bye at the end of the season in case games were postponed due to COVID-19 and since the Bulldogs didn’t need either of week, they are done for the year.

Alvord, which is locked into second place, will now wait two weeks for the playoffs to begin.
