Tigers fall to Newton in season opener, 41-17

By Danny Reneau

NEWTON – The Silsbee Tigers opened their 2017 football season a week late and at times appeared to still be missing their offensive unit.

The Tigers left with a 41-17 non-district loss.

The Tigers took the opening kick and after a short return had the ball at their own 17 yard lines. Back-to-back penalties on the Newton sidelines moved the ball to the 40- yard line.
