Wilson dropped its second straight D.C. Interscholastic Athletic Association game when it fell to Ballou on Friday night 13-7. Wilson now has a 3-4 record for the season.
The Tigers fell into a 13-0 hole by halftime, but battled back with a two-yard touchdown by senior running back Anton Reed — trimming the deficit to 13-7 in the third quarter. But the Tigers were unable to mount more offense to complete the comeback.
Wilson’s offense was kept in check, with junior quarterback Zayaan Cobb held to just four completions for 45 yards and the Tigers’ potent rushing attack bottled up. Reed and senior running back Eric Nelson III combined to take 19 carries for just 34 yards.
The Tigers will look to rebound when Wilson hosts Anacostia for homecoming on Saturday at 2 p.m.
