It Wasn't Pretty, But The Dawgs Win Against Cordova 33 to 11
The Dawgs turned the ball over at least 5 times to the Cordova Blue Devils but still managed to pull out a win. More photos and a story on Friday. Whitt Wright scampers in for his first high school touchdown.
The 2005 Bulldogs look very good on defense this year, but the offense had trouble holding on to the ball. In the half alone the Dawgs turned the ball over four times on three fumbles and an interception.
The Blue Devils payed tough in the first half only allowing one 85 yard scamper by Marquis Chapel.
"I was nervous, sweating. I don't know what you call it. I was anxious. I felt like we could move the ball, but I was thinking that if we continued to turn over the ball we were in trouble," Wright said.
The second half was a different story with several in the Bulldog backfield scoring. Cedric East, Whit Wright and Justin Woods each ran for touchdowns. Marquis Chapel was hampered for most of the night with leg cramps.
On the night, Dora rushed for 400 yards on 41 carries with both Eric Woods and Chapel breaking the 100-yard barrier.
Early in the second half, East scored with a five-yard touchdown run right through the middle of the Cordova defense. This score was made possible with a long run by Eric Woods. Anthony Valdez kicked the extra point.
Whitt Wright, the sopomore quarterback also took advantage of an Eric Woods scamper and capped off the drive with a 19-yard TD.
Cordova came roaring back with its only touchdown of the night. Freshman Tim Simon (14 years old) took the handoff and was hit by several Dora defenders, but he shook them off and raced 65 yards for Cordova's only touch down. Drew Short kicked the two-point conversion to bring Cordova to within 20-11.
Dora's Jarius Johnson recovered a fumble to start the Bulldogs' next scoring drive. Four plays later, Justin Woods went in from 30 yards out to give Dora the 26-11 lead.
The Bulldogs' final score came late in the game when Lavertis Townes picked off a Daniel Ingram pass and took it 42 yards for the score.
All and all, the Dawgs were glad to get out of the match with a win. The team has a lot of potential and a good stable of running backs. The passing is a little shaky (two interceptions) but that should come along with some experience.
On September 2, the Dawgs trabel to Holt.
