Although Friday nights football game wasn’t quite the outcome that the Waldron Sr High Bulldogs had hoped for, they fought hard and pushed through until the bitter end. The Bulldogs ended the night with a 36-16 loss to the Elkins Elks. Waldron may sit 0-1 in conference play and 0-4 in season play but don’t expect them to hang up their cleats anytime soon. The Bulldogs still have a ton of fight left in them.
By the end of the third quarter, Waldron had yet to put points up. And just when it looked like things were over for the Bulldogs, Isaac Villarreal was on target catching a pass from Braden Williams and running it in for a massive 62-yard touchdown. Ruben Valdez added the extra two-point conversion and Waldron was on the board with eight points. With five minutes left in the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs weren’t ready to call it quits. Williams connected with Seth Hunt for another Bulldog touchdown with Gabino Grano scoring the extra two points and closing out the game.
Quarterback, Braden Williams, finished the night completing 11 passes for 134 yards and scoring nine tackles. Grano earned a 22-yard reception. Carson Cain had two receptions for 14 yards and Hunt snagged four receptions for 26 yards. Defensively, Matthew Tegtmeyer led the team with 11 tackles out of 45 total team tackles. Bradley Smith followed with five and Bryson Bailey netted four.
Up next on the schedule the Bulldogs will host the 4-0 Dardanelle Sand Lizards on October 4 at 7 p.m.
