Bulldogs snakebit by Tolar




In their second week of district play, the Millsap Bulldogs have not had an easy road, and the road got rockier Friday night, as Millsap fell to Tolar, 61-0, in front of a Bulldog Homecoming crowd.

After a rocky start on offense for the Bulldogs, including a fumble on the second drive of the game, the Rattlers capitalized on the opportunity, taking possession in Millsap territory and driving down field to set up Corbin Wood’s 3-yard touchdown. BJ Dollins’ kick after made it 7-0 with nine minutes to go.

After suffering their own three-and-out, the Bulldogs force Tolar to do the same, but couldn’t get the ball into Rattler territory on their next series.

Tolar would add another score, this time on a 23-yard run by Cory Solomon, who lit up the scoreboard several times during the evening, and led 14-0 at the end of the first.

Following its momentum in the opening 12 minutes, the Rattlers struck paydirt to begin the second quarter when Solomon found the end zone again for a 1-yard scamper to give the Rattlers a commanding 21-0 lead.

Hampered by turnovers all night that included an interception and six lost fumbles, the Bulldogs turned possession over on their first play of the quarter, but managed to stop Tolar from scoring.

After another three-and-out by the Bulldogs, Solomon had a 7-yard score with 5:35 to play in the half, and Tolar would add one more, this time on Colt Arrington’s 1-yard carry, to make it 33-0 at halftime.

Following the Homecoming festivity reprieve, the Rattlers returned to the field with a bang, scoring twice in  a 2-minute span, including a 36-yard run by Solomon off of a Bulldog turnover.

Tolar put up its highest quarter-total of the night, with 28 points in the third. But the Millsap defense kept with it, forcing the Rattlers to punt in all three 4th-quarter possessions.
