BOSCOBEL - It was an ideal night for football Friday, though the ground was a little soft from recent rains, as Boscobel faced the Golden Eagles as the visiting team for Fennimore’s Homecoming game.
The night played out well for Fennimore, turning into a full route of the Bulldogs that ended with a 56-0 loss.
Fennimore started hot, scoring three touchdowns with the conversion point in the first five minutes of the game, setting the pace for the first two quarters, to enter the half with the lead 56-0 over the Bulldogs.
The Boscobel defense was able to regroup and hold the Golden Eagles back from scoring throughout the second half. Sadly, the offense struggled, unable to hold onto the ball and make it to the end zone.
“There’s not much to say about how we played on Friday night,” said Coach Joey Martin. “We simply have to get better. We, as coaches, feel confident in our systems, but have to minimize distractions throughout the week in order to put a better product together on Friday nights.”
The Bulldogs will host conference rival Darlington on Friday. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
The Redbirds will be a challenge for the Bulldogs. They are currently tied for first in conference rankings with Iowa-Grant. They are 5-0 for the season.
“Darlington is one of the most talented teams you will see in a while,” said Coach Martin. “With several players committed to playing at the next level including one at Wisconsin, we will have our hands full. We will not fold, we will not give up, but we will set attainable goals this week and strive for them and then set more goals and continue to grow.”
The Bulldogs are currently 1-4 for the season and 1-2 in conference play.
