After a great kicking game the previous week, the Bulldogs did not hit a point after during the win. “I thought we played real well,” said Bulldog head coach Yori Ludvigson. “Perkins had a huge game and Cade Anderson played well and has developed into a good quarterback. Our focus again this week is to get better heading into our big game with Moapa this coming week. We need to go down and roll over Moapa.” The Bulldogs face their archrival Pirates Friday Oct. 13. The two week break will give the short handed Bulldogs a much needed rest going into league play.
