Tiger Tracker: In-state edition

With the Missouri high school playoffs underway, PowerMizzou.com is taking a look at how some of the Tigers' commitments are doing in this special, in-state edition of Tiger Tracker.

Fort Osage 29, Park Hill 6

On Monday night, it was the E.J. Gaines show. Missouri's cornerback commit had his best all-around performance of the season, rushing for 100 yards and three touchdowns on 17 carries. Park Hill tested Gaines on defense, and the three-star recruit answered with two interceptions. The Indians' forced six turnovers on the night to move to the quarterfinals of the Missouri state playoffs. At 11-0, the Indians appear lined up to meet top-seeded, and also undefeated, Webster Groves in the state finals.

Parkway North 38, Rolla 35 OT

Unfortunately for Missouri commit Anthony Gatti, he had to watch this thrilling game from the sidelines. Gatti tore his ACL in Parkway North's final regular-season game, but his Vikings teammates rallied around. Rolla tied the game with 55 seconds to play, and after being deadlocked through three overtimes periods, the Vikings advanced on a field goal in the fourth period. Despite missing its best offensive lineman, Parkway North managed to rush for 321 total yards. Now, the Vikings play Parkway Central, who upset Timberland, on Saturday in the quarterfinals.

Timberland 8, Parkway Central 22

Missouri commit Nick Demien saw his season end abruptly as Parkway Central rode a dominating second-half into the quarterfinals. After missing most of the season because of a torn ACL, Demien returned in time for the T-Wolves last regular-season game, but miscues on punts and turnovers doomed Timberland. Parkway Central scored 16 unanswered points in the second half after trailing by two at the intermission.

New Madrid County Central 32, Potosi 24

The Eagles avenged a 39-7 loss to Potosi in the best way, ruining the Trojans undefeated season and moving on to the quarterfinals. After surrendering over 150 yards and four touchdowns to Stanford-commit Brandon Bourbon in the September game, Missouri commit Kony Ealy held Bourbon in check. Bourbon finished the game with 121 yards rushing, far, far below his season average. The pressure forced Potosi quarterback Matt Marler into three interceptions, and junior standout G'Darius Stevenson rushed for 294 yards on 20 carries. He also finished with three touchdowns. Now, New Madrid moves on to face Priory on Saturday in the quarterfinals.
