Overview: The Tigers appeared positioned to move into the upper division of 4A Narrows with five offensive and seven defensive starters returning. But that has not occurred as Stadium has allowed 31.1 points per game, which is the second worst amount in the eight-team league. The Tigers still have talent on the offensive side, though. McNeil, who rushed for 774 yards and 11 touchdowns in an injury shortened ’09 season, is healthy. He scored all three touchdowns for Stadium last week against CK. Stumph also is a second-year starter at quarterback. South Kitsap has won 21 consecutive meetings in the series since Stadium’s 16-7 victory in 1976.
