Who Let the Dawgs Out - Dora 67 Lamar Co. 14 by James Phillips
DORA - It was business as usual Friday night at Horace Roberts Field.
The No. 3-ranked Dora Bulldogs (11-0) added to their state-leading scoring average with a 67-14 dismantling of Lamar County in the first round of Alabama High School Athletic Association Class 3A playoffs.
Dora's potent running attack continued to roll by racking up 501 yards on the ground. Twelve different Bulldogs received carries in the game, and they were led by Chase Pierce's 83 yards and three touchdowns on nine carries. Derrick Gardner added 70 yards and a touchdown on nine carries. Sophomore Eric Woods was on his way to a career night by picking up 70 yards and a touchdown on five carries, but broke his femur in the first half and will undergo surgery today and be lost for the remainder of the season.

"Losing Eric is tough," Dora head coach Johnny Wright said. "We've been lucky this season and haven't had any serious injuries. We know Eric is a tough kid and he is a hard worker. He will do what it takes to be back next season."
Dora appeared to be in trouble early after fumbling the ball on its first possession. Lamar County took over on the Dora 30, but only managed to move the ball 19 yards in six plays.
To say Dora took over from there would be an understatement. The Bulldogs reeled off eight straight touchdowns before Lamar County scored its first. The Dora offense wasn't the only dominant aspect of the game. The defensive unit held Lamar County to only 48 total yards and no points through the first three quarters of the game. The Dora "D" also picked off two Lamar County passes in the first half.
Pierce picked up all his yardage and scored on runs of 31, 10, and 2 yards in the first half. Woods added a 31-yard score and Gardner a 1-yard score to give Dora a 34-0 lead at halftime.
