Multiple Teams · 7 th Grade Football Falls to Cairo

August 27, 2014

The 7th grade Bulldogs lost their home opener this afternoon.  The score was 26 to 22.  It was a great outing for the young Bulldog squad.  They showed a lot of promise in this first game and were fighting the whole game through.  Mistakes cost the Dogs in this contest.  They fell behind early 20 to 8, but managed to hold defensively and score on a fumble return to make the score 20 to 14.  The Dogs then went tied the score at 20 and took the lead with a 2 point conversion.  They gave up a late score but held on the extra point.  The score was 26 to 22 and the Dogs defense held giving the offense the ball and an opportunity to win the game.  It didn’t go the Dogs way as their bid for a win ended with an interception.  You can be proud of these young men who never gave up and will make adjustments before the next game.  Go Dogs!!!
