Tigers Take Down the  Dawgs

By Christy Suggs

Friday night the RR Bulldogs traveled to Winnfield High School to take on the Tigers for the 3rd district game of the season. RR went in off a big win against Lakeview and had high hopes. But luck wasn’t on the side of the Dawgs. Penalties, few first downs, incomplete passes,  and missed opportunities hurt the Bulldogs. Winnfield scored first but were unable to get the 2 pt conversion. The Bulldogs were able to get on the board with a little over a 1 minute left in the half. Teams went to the locker room with a score of RR 7 Winnfield 6.

The second wasn’t any better for RR.  The Tigers scored 1 touchdown with 3:30 to go in the 3rd and scored again in the 4th making the final score RR 7- Winnfield 20.

Caoch Harper had this to say about the game. Winnfield is ranked #5 in the state for a reason. They had a great game-plan for us and executed it. They maximized every offensive drive and kept our offense on the sidelines. The boys played hard but it wasn’t our night. We had too many penalties and mental busts in all three phases of the game. We will get back to work for Many who’s coming to town this Thursday night. I don’t believe they’ve lost a district game in very long time. Many is ranked #1 in the power rankings as well as the LSWA polls for Division III. This is our biggest test of the season and why we’ve scheduled tough out of district games. We hope to have everyone back and healthy for this Thursday night.

Note: the Many vs. Red River game has been moved to Thursday night due to weather precautions.
