Last Thursday night Red Boiling Springs closed out their 2013 Jr. High Football season with a hard fought victory over the boys from Clinton County Ky. by a final score of 22-16.
The outcome of this game went down to the final seconds when the Bulldogs stopped the Kentucky kids on downs at the Bulldog 14 yard line.
Clinton County drew first blood early in the first quarter as they used their ground game to take the ball all the way down to the 4 yard line and scored on third and 4. The 2 pt. conversion was good for an 8-0 lead and a stunned Bulldog crowd was stunned by the way the Bulldogs got pushed around.
Early in the second quarter the Bulldogs started to move the ball on the ground with Logan Hewitt and Jamie Ruiz. Jordan Powell took the ball into the endzone from 6 yards out and Logan Hewitt tacked on the 2 pt. conversion to tie this game up at 8 points each. Clinton County came right back down the field and with runs of 33 yards and 37 yards they managed to score with only 40 seconds left on the clock. The 2 pt. conversion was good and the Bulldogs had just 40 seconds left on the clock in the second quarter to see if they could score before intermission.
Turnovers and penalties stopped both teams from mounting any serious scoring threats in the second half but a big play in this game came in the third quarter when the Bulldogs stopped Clinton County deep in Bulldog territory on downs. This was a big lift for the home team.
This game ends the season for the kids and a very good year with a 6-2 record. The kids that will be moving up to the high school team are-Jordan Prince-Anthony Kramer-Lee Pruitt-Logan Hewitt-Jarred Mcutchen-Jarred HatcherJordan Powell-Jamie Ruiz-Cryon StoneTrevor Newberry-Damon Thompson-Carlos Thomas. A Great evening at the Dog Pound for all Bulldog fans.
