Bulldog Football is currently the highest scoring offense in the state for all classes. So far, Red River has put 207 points on the board. That was reported by Geaux Preps.com. A screen shot of their ranking is below.
Here is a report on their first District Win from Christy Scruggs
The Red River Bulldogs went to Winnfield Tigers to open district play. It was another nail biting, clawing your way out of a hole game for the Bulldogs. Winnfield kicked off to the Bulldogs. Unfortunately, they were unable to score. After several failed drives for both teams, the Tigers opened up the scoring door at 2:02 left in the first quarter.
Two minutes into the 2nd quarter, the Bulldogs put 6 points on the board with a TD. The Tigers blocked Ryder Hogan’s PAT. Winnfield followed up with a touchdown and PAT making it RR 6 – WHS 14. RR tried to get things going with several drives, but nothing happened. One highlight of the half was an interception by Stanley Maxie with a good return but no TD. The Bulldogs went to the lock room down 6-17.
One thing DAWG fans have learned this season is to NEVER Count the DAWGS out. They came out of the locker rooms fired up and ready to play. Winnfield started the 3rd with the ball. However, they couldn’t do anything because the 1st play, of the drive Bulldog Jyrel Jones forced a fumble and the bulldogs recovered it. Capitalizing on this new momentum, the dawgs scored a touchdown and was successful at a 2 point conversion to make the score 14-17.
The Bulldogs stopped a tigers drive, received a punt with a great return that put them on the Tigers 14 yard line. This led to a 1 play TD, giving the Dawgs the lead for the first time 21-17. Another touchdown was scored from an onside kick that the Bulldogs recovered. The Dawgs scored a total of 4 touchdowns, 1 2 point conversion, and 3 PATs in the 3rd. Bulldogs led 35 to 17 starting the 4th quarter.
After a few errors on Red River’s and Winnfield’s offense, a few shutdown drives, and a major penalty by Red River, the teams only added one scoring plays to their totals bringing the final score to Red River 41 Winnfield 25.
