Bulldogs blanked by Mildred




 No. 8 ranked Corsicana Mildred scored on every possession and took advantage of four Millsap turnovers Friday night in a 77-0 victory over the hosts.

The visiting Eagles (3-0 in District 6-2A and 5-1 overall) ran just 16 plays in the first two quarters, getting out to a blistering 64-0 halftime lead against the Bulldogs (0-3 and 0-6).  Their longest drive was four plays, as they continually set up shop in Millsap’s end of the field. The longest drive of the night yard-wise, and it took just one play to end it, was 66 yards.

Millsap ran twice as many plays but was able to do next to nothing against the Mildred defense. Three of the Bulldogs’ four first downs in the first half came via Eagles penalty.

Junior running back Timothy Newberry had the lone bright spot offensively for Millsap in the first half, cutting to his right and rumbling 22 yards to midfield. That, and a personal foul penalty on Mildred, brought the Bulldogs into Eagle territory for the first time early in the second quarter. It was not to be a scoring march, however, as a fumble recovery by Mildred two plays later snuffed out the drive.

Newberry led the way on the ground with 38 yards on seven carries. It was one of six fumbles by the ‘Dogs, but the only turnover on the ground. Sophomore quarterback Bradley Bottoms threw three interceptions but completed passes to both Kristian Martinez, who also had the most carries with nine, and Jaxon Martin.

With a running clock in the second half, the Eagles scored on their first two possessions and held Millsap in check, using a pair of interceptions by DB Jeremy Ballard to cancel two more Bulldog possessions.

Millsap will look for a win as it hits the road Friday night, playing at Rice.
