On Thursday, August 27, the Waldron Jr High Bulldogs took their “pack” to Hackett to try and collapse the Jr High Hornets. Although it was a very soggy battle, neither team seemed to let that affect them. In fact, it seemed like the Jr Dogs really came to life in the wet weather. So alive that they kept control of the entire first half of the game leaving the Jr Hornets drowning in their “Purple Rain”. The teams went into halftime with the Bulldogs leading 6-0. By the third quarter, the Jr Hornets managed to put some points on the board setting the score at 12-6 Waldron. Unfortunately, that’s when things started to fall apart for the Jr Bulldogs.

Hackett found their drive and like a runaway train, they steamrolled the game into a nail-biting overtime ending the match with a final score of 18-12 Hackett. “It was a smash-mouth game that coaches love to be in,” said Coach Garett Lazenby. “It came down to a heartbreaking 4th and 1 stand but I was proud of how our kids played. Our offensive standout of the night was running back, Logan Young. He did some great downhill running for the team! Our defensive stand out was defensive back, Michael Grano. He flew up and down the gridiron making lots of tackles.” The Jr Bulldogs will spend the next week prepping for an always entertaining football game against the Mansfield Tigers at Mansfield on September 3 in the “Battle of Scott County”.
