This past Thursday, the 7th grade Bulldog football squad traveled to Dublin and battled the Lions. The Bulldogs picked up their first win of the season due to a strong offensive performance by Zeke Jones and a fiery Bulldog defense winning 32-14. Jones accounted for 5 touchdowns on the day and Gatlin McBee added a 2-point conversion to account for the Bulldog scoring. Brady jumped out to a quick 12-0 lead early in the 1st quarter scoring on their opening possession followed up by a successful onside kick and long run by Jones.
Defensively, the Bulldogs were able to shutout the Lions offense in the second half of the game. It was a total team effort defensively as the Bulldogs were able to shut down the Lion rushing attack. Evan McMullin made a key defensive play late in the first half stripping the ball away from a Lion running back deep inside Bulldog territory and returning it 60 yards to the Dublin 2-yard line.
The lions will begin district play this Thursday on the road taking on Ingram-Moore at Warrior Stadium. Please come out and show your continued support for our 7th grade football squad.
