Ethan Hamm intercepted a Gage Taylor pass on the next Danville play and returned it to the Hawks’ two-yard line.

The Tigers scored on the next play to take a 14-0 lead.

The Hawks’ Taylor hit Kohl Randolph for a 39-yard touchdown pass following a Lauderdale County fumble that Dylan McCleskey recovered.
