The Dawgs wasted little time getting on the board first.  On their third play of the game, Luke Scaggs hauled in a 72 yard pass from Drew Mentzel to give the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead.  From the onset, this was going to be a physical game.  The remainder of the quarter was scoreless.

Cole Joslin added 3 more touchdowns in the third quarter and David Pride hauled in a 76 yard touchdown pass to cap the third quarter scoring.  At the end of the third the Rockets held a 48-14 lead.

The second quarter was scoreless.  The Bulldogs attempt at a 30 yard field goal was unsuccessful.

Williamsburg 14  Batavia 13 (OT)
Friday Night Lights were finally back in Holman Stadium on August 30th.  Mother Nature did her best to delay the start, however after a long weather delay "The Game" started just after 7:30PM.   Holman Stadium's off-season makeover was unveiled to a packed house of over 7,000 fans.  
 
The two arch-rivals got off to a sluggish start.  The first half saw the two teams battle back and forth with no scoring.  
 
The third quarter saw the Dawgs drive down to the Burg 3, only to be stopped on a 4th down conversion.  Burg also drove down to the Bulldog 5, but the defense held and after three quarters, the game was still scoreless.
 
The fourth quarter began with the Dawgs intercepting a Wildcat pass at their own 41.  The offense drove 59 yards in just under 8 minutes to finally break the tie on a 7 yard run by Luke Scaggs.  The extra point was good and with just over 4 minutes left, the Dawgs led 7-0.  The Wildcats were not rattled however.  The ensuing kickoff was returned all the way to the Batavia 12.  Two minutes later the game was tied at 7 as the Wildcats converted a 4th and goal from the 4 yard line.  
 
On the Bulldogs next possession, they were stopped at their own 40.  A bad snap on the punt gave the Wildcats the ball at the Batavia 18 with just over one minute left.  The next play resulted in a Wildcat fumble and the Dawgs recovered.    On to overtime the game went.  
 
The Bulldogs got the ball first in the overtime period, and Luke Scaggs scored his second touchdown of the night with a 20 yard run on the first play of overtime.  A high snap on the extra point, resulted in the try being blocked.  The Dawgs were up 13-7, as the Wildcats got their turn in the overtime period.    Five plays later, the Wildcats were in the end zone.  Their extra point was good for the 14-13 win.
 
The Bulldogs fall to 0-1 on the young season, and will host Gamble Montessori next Friday at Holman Stadium.  This game was moved back home from Stargel Stadium.
 
The JV squad got some revenge on Saturday morning with a 24-12 victory over the Wildcats.   The JV squad returns to action on Saturday September 14th at home against CNE.
