On Friday night, the #4 Ranked Toombs County Bulldogs hosted the Windsor Forest Knights in a Region 3AA contest in the PIT.
Toombs took the ball on the opening kickoff, starting from their own 24-yard line. Two plays later Dabyn Wadley would scoot 63-yards for a Bulldog touchdown just 45 seconds into the game. Braylen Dietrich connected on the point after to give the Dogs a 7-0 lead.
The “Red Bullet” defense would hold the Knights on their first possession on a 4th down on their own 30-yard line. Just, three plays later, QB TJ Stanley would hit pay dirt to give the Dogs a 14-0 lead with 8:34 left in the first quarter.
On the ensuing drive by the Knights, the “Red Bullets” would block a punt giving the Bulldogs the ball on the Knight’s 4-yard line. Seconds later, Freshman Alex Scott would punch his name in the scoring line with a 3-yard touchdown run that would put the Dogs up 21-0 with 6:51 in the first.
After a Knight punt, the Dogs quickly struck again when Stanley hit Junior WR LaGonza Heyward on a 59-yard touchdown pass pushing the score to 28-0 with 5:19 left in the first. The Dogs would again get the ball back but failed to convert on a 3rd down play. Dietrich would answer by kicking a 40-yard field goal, extending the lead to 31-0 in the first quarter.
On the Knights first play on the following drive, Alex Scott would knock the ball loose and Wadley would scoop and score for the Bulldogs making the score 38-0 at the end of the first quarter.
The Bulldogs would start rotating starters out in the second quarter, while adding another Stanley touchdown run before the half, and then another Dietrich field goal in the second half with a running clock, to cap the scoring with the Dogs on top 48-0. Windsor Forest was held to -2 total yards on the night.
The Bulldogs travel over to Vidalia High School this Friday for the regular season finale against their crosstown rival. The Indians are 5-4 and 3-2 in Region 3AA, losing to Pierce County on Friday 35-7.
