Dog Tame the Tigers for First Round Win
Horace Roberts field was soggy after 2 1/2 inches of rain fell in Dora this week, but the Dawgs took the mud in stride as they beat the Ardmore Tigers 28-14.
The weather was in the mid 40's but a steady breeze out of the north west made it feel like an icebox.
Ardmore won the toss but deferred giving Dora the ball first. On the second play from scrimmage, Eric Woods grabbed a pass from Jorge Williams and took it for 28 yards. The Dogs marched on down the field and scored first with a dive up the middle.
Ardmore was unable to move the ball at first, but got a break near the end of the first quarter when the Dora center snapped the ball over the punter's head and Ardmore recovered the ball deep in Dora territory.

Jeff Flack Races 90 yards for a Dora TD

They capitalized on the error to tie the game in the first quarter. Both teams scored again in the second quarter and the game stood tied at the half.
The third quarter was scoreless in a defensive battle with the Dogs holding the Tigers twice on 4 down. Eric Woods ignited the offence with a 38 yard run over the left side of the line. The offense held on to the ball and ground out more yardage and Eric Woods exploded in from the one to give Dora the go-ahead score 21-14.
Ardmore fought hard and they had the muscle with which to fight. The line averaged over 280 pounds. They managed to march the ball down field and with less than two minutes to go, they had the ball inside Dora's 15 yard line. On the next play, an Ardmore halfback fumbled the football inside the 10 and Dora linebacker Jeff Flack picked up the loose football and ran it back 90 yards for a Dora touchdown which put the game on ice. The Tigers took it hard and got three personal fouls, two of which got Tigers ejected from the game. Dora held on to win 28 to 14.
Coach Johnny Wright was happy with his team's performance. "The defense play well tonight," he said. "They were able to hold Ardmore twice on fourth down." He named outstanding performance in several players but said Jeff Flacks fumble recovery and return for a touchdown was huge. "It's good to get this first round out of the way," he said "We're looking forward to next weeks challenge."
Next week Dora will face The Hamilton Aggies in the second round of the state playoffs.
