The trust was evident as two of his touchdown passes, including the game-winner, were to Dingess on strikes of 39 and 22 yards. Berry connected with his first touchdown of the night on a 40-yard strike to Cox in the second quarter.
"We work every day on routes non-stop," Cox said. "After practice and before practice, we work very hard in the offseason running routes. We have just gotten used to each other."
Dingess finished the game with five catches for 103 yards and two touchdowns, while Cox hauled seven passes for 122 yards and a score.
After falling behind 16-0 on touchdown runs by Stewart of 1 and 2 yards, and a 21-yard field goal from Nick Jensen, the Tigers reeled off 22 straight points on a Devin Wiley 33-yard run (76 yards rushing), Cox's 44-yard pass from Berry and an 11-yard run by Berry to take a 22-16 halftime lead.
The team exchanged scores in the second half on a 60-yard interception return by Poca's Kenny Stewart, countered by Dingess' 39-yard strike from Berry. Then a Levi Clendenin 5-yard scamper for Poca came before the final score by the Tigers.
Stewart led the Dots with 143 yards on 31 carries and two touchdowns.
"Second quarter was our downfall," Lemley said. "We let them score 22 points in the quarter. I don't what happened. I thought we played well in the third and fourth quarters but it came down to fourth-and-15 and they made a play."
