A tough second quarter put Potter-Dix behind early and the Coyotes could not recover in a 52-40 loss at Paxton last Thursday to open the football playoffs.

The Coyotes took a 12-6 first quarter lead, but the Tigers outscored them 34-0 in the second quarter. Potter-Dix trailed 40-12 at halftime.

Potter-Dix got back into the game in the third quarter, outscoring Paxton 20-6 to cut the deficit to 46-32. The Coyotes outscored the Tigers 8-6 in the fourth quarter, but could not inch back any closer.
