The Bulldogs hit the road for the first time in the young 2019 season on Friday night with a short trip to CNE.   
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.
CNE exploded in the second quarter taking advantage of some Bulldog mistakes.  Two touchdown runs by Cole Joslin put the Rockets ahead 13-7.   Hunter Vires returned an interception 29 yards for another score and the Rockets were up 20-7.  
The Dawgs came barking back with a 9 yard pass to Alex Byrd to cut the lead to 20-14 with just over one minute left in the half.  Then, Mother Nature stepped in once again.  After a 45 minute weather delay, the teams resumed play, and it was all Rockets.
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 fourth quarter saw the Rockets continue to pour it on, scoring two more touchdowns.  In an interesting decision, up 61-14, the Rockets went for two with 1:32 left in the game to cap the scoring.  Final score 63-14.
The Bulldogs fall to 1-2 on the year and will return to Holman Stadium next week as they host Bethel-Tate for a 7:00PM Homecoming game on Friday September 20th.  
The JV game against Williamsburg was cancelled.  They will travel to Bethel on Saturday September 20th at 10:00AM for their next game.

The Bulldogs were back in action on the first Friday of September, and unexpectedly playing Gamble in Holman Stadium.  The game was originally scheduled for Stargel Stadium, however it is still under construction thus the move to Holman. 
The Dawgs didn't seem to let last week's loss affect them as they jumped out to a 7-0 lead on their second drive of the game.  Alex Jones scampered 16 yards to give the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead.   The Gators would attempt to respond, however they kept hurting themselves with penalties.  The Gators would end up committing 19 penalties in the game compared to the Bulldogs number of zero.
The second quarter was scoreless.  The Bulldogs attempt at a 30 yard field goal was unsuccessful.
The third quarter saw the Bulldogs take their first possesion of the half and score on a 15 yard run by Blake Casey.  The drive took 49 seconds.  The extra point was blocked, so at the end of three the Dawgs led 13-0.
The Gators continued to dominate time of posession as the fourth quarter began, however they had difficuly sustaining drives.  After a 4th down stop, the Bulldogs took over at the Gators 43 yard line.  Luke Scaggs ended the scoring on the night with a 43 yard run around the right side of the line.   
The Bulldogs improved to 1-1 on the year and will hit the road next week as they travel to CNE for a 7:00PM game on Friday September 13th.

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.
