Logansport Over Red River in Final Non-District Match

By Christy Suggs

The Bulldogs traveled to Logansport Friday night to take on the purple and gold Tigers. Several changes to the team were seen as the Dawgs took the field. Red River played exciting ball however they were not strong enough to overcome the Tigers.  Final Logansport 32-Red River 16.

Roster changes had occurred due to a variety of reasons. Senior Kicker Miguel Allen was out of the country. Senior Eli Harper moved from wide receiver to quarterback. Kicking was Freshman B’Nodrick Winn while Junior Chris Carper punted.

Red River started off on their 35 moving strong down the field. Senior halfback Leonard Mosley led this drive with 55 yards, all rushing. Mosley was just too much for the Tiger defense most of the game.  Sadly, the Bulldogs were stopped on 4th down giving the ball to Logansport on Logansport’s 7 yard line.
