CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- Whitwell forced seven turnovers and scored a touchdown in all three phases of the game en route to an easy 53-8 win over Sale Creek Thursday night at Finley Stadium.
The Tigers (4-5) have now won three in a row and have a chance to finish at .500 and put themselves in position for a playoff spot if they can beat Richland in next week's regular season finale.
Bailey Blalock returned two interceptions for touchdowns and Marvin Watson scooped up a blocked punt for another score. Whitwell finished the night with four interceptions and three fumble recoveries while holding the first-year Panthers (0-8) to just 129 total yards.
Clay McHone rushed for 192 yards and three touchdowns to pace the Tigers' offense.
