BOSCOBEL — It was a slow start for the Bulldogs as they faced the Golden Eagles in a home game last Friday evening.
The Bulldogs lost the gamr 33-14, with all of their scoring occurring in the fourth quarter.
“We finally had a little luck go our way and our players talents were starting to show late in the game,” said coach Joey Martin. “We were able to spread the field with a mix of toss plays and quick passes which then opened up the middle. It was nice to see the game plan finally start to come together and our kids executing like we expect them to. I was very pleased with how our kids never gave up, finished the game, and showed signs of greatness throughout. I believe we are taking strides in the right direction.”
The first score by Boscobel came three minutes into the fourth with a pass from Tommy Monroe to Britan Waterman for a 24-yard catch and run touchdown. Monroe attempted an unsuccessful two-point conversion run.
Less than two minutes later, the Bulldogs repeated their scoring with a pass from Monroe to Dallas Marks for a 46-yard gain. Boscobel gained additional points with a successful two-point conversion pass by Monroe to Waterman.
“It was a slow start on Friday night. We expected some wrinkles with the personnel changes that we made, but were hoping that we would come out hotter than we did,” stated Martin. “We couldn't catch a break for at least three quarters of the game. We moved the ball really well at times, but would then either fumble or have costly penalties. Both teams, Fennimore and Boscobel were banged up with injuries and sicknesses.”
David Zart led the Bulldogs in rushing with nine runs for 77 yards, averaging 8.6 yards per carry. Chase Kull followed Zart at eight attempts for 55 yards with a 6.9-yard average.
Leading in receiving for Boscobel was Dallas Marks with five receptions and 75 yards, with an average of 15 yards per catch. Kull followed with two receptions for 45 yards and Zart with one reception for 45 yards. Monroe attempted 16 throws with 10 completions for 192 yards.
