Dylan Parker catches a pass for a 2 point conversion following a Bulldog touchdown.
Bulldogs Beat Down Leon to Open Playoffs, CROCKETT, November 14, 2014 - The Corrigan-Camden Bulldogs played a Thursday night game in Crockett for their first round playoff against the Leon Cougars. The Dogs played a complete, well rounded game of football playing well both defensively and offensively. Offensively, the Dogs show up. You can count on it, but it was the defense that was noticeably improved as they came through time after time and holding the Cougars to a single touchdown and two point conversion. SCORING SUMMARY
First Quarter: 6:40 Malyk Johnson 30 yd td run, Johnson also runs in 2 pt cnv. Dogs 8, Cougars 0 6:21 Cougars 77 yd td run and pass for 2 pt cnv. Dogs 8, Cougars 8 2:54 Johnson 27 yd td run, Keegan Mitchell runs in 2 pt cnv. Dogs 16, Cougars 8
Second Quarter: 00:17 Mitchell 2 yd td run, Johnson runs in 2 pt cnv. Dogs 24, Cougars 8
Third Quarter: 8:43 Johnson 28 yd td run, missed pat. Dogs 30, Cougars 8
The Leon Cougars were actually a quality team. They'd only lost 2 games this year and when the game began, the Cougars quickly answered the Dogs' 8 points with 8 points of their own. What made the big difference in this game for the Dogs was their defense stepping up and nearly shutting out a quality team. The Dogs seem to be peaking a just the right time. The Dogs' next game is against Rogers (a team of which I know nothing about). Willie P. Openshaw, Editor
