On Friday, the Toombs County Bulldogs hosted the Treutlen County Vikings in the final non-region matchup for the Dogs this season. After muffing the opening kickoff, The Bulldogs went to work and handled business quickly.
In the first quarter, the Dogs scored on a TJ Stanley to Hunter Barwick 6-yard pass, and Braylan Dietrich placed the point after to give the Dogs an early 7-0 lead with 5:59 remaining in the first quarter. The “Red Bullet” defense dominated the game for their second consecutive shutout and held the Vikings to a punt on their next drive.
In the second quarter, Stanley connected with Junior LaGonza Heyward on a 17-yard TD pass and ran for another 7-yard Touchdown with 4:59 remaining in the half. The Bulldogs added another touchdown strike when Stanley hit Senior Keshon Deloach on a 27-yard pass right before the half. The Dogs went into the locker room up 27-0.
In the second half, The “Red Bullet” defense controlled things, wreaking havoc on the Viking QB. Brock Nobles and Dabyn Wadley were credited with sacks. When Wadley scored on a 15-yard run with 3:39 remaining in the 3rd Quarter, the running clock started to end the game very quickly.
The Bulldogs finished with a 37-0 win and look to continue the amazing start as they travel to Reidsville next Friday to open region play against the Tattnall County Battle Creek Warriors.
