Game Recap

The 8th grade Bulldogs faced the Lions from Des Moines Christian on Monday, October 9th where the Bulldogs came away victorious by a score of 28-14. The Bulldogs were led offensively by Jack Pettit who scored 3 of the 4 Van Meter touchdowns. Defensively the Bulldogs were anchored by their defensive line (Ganon A, Lincoln O, Nic G, Kyler Y, Casey T, Caden T, & Hunter H.) who controlled the line of scrimmage, and pressured the DMC quarterback.

The game started off with DMC receiving the kickoff and having some offensive success, the drive eventually stalled and the Lions punted. The Bulldogs then got the ball and marched down the field where Jack Pettit punched it in from 18 yards out. After a DMC touchdown in the 2nd quarter the Bulldogs scored again with :44 seconds left in the half, another 18 yard TD run from Jack Pettit. This time Korbin Barck converted the 2pt conversion.

In the 2nd half the Bulldogs continued to find success in the run game, but it was a quarter full of empty possessions for both teams. Nic Grob came up big with a fumble recovery to set the Bulldogs up offensively. 45 seconds into the 4th quarter Jack P. rattled off a 45 yard TD run with Lincoln Olsen and Kyler Young creating a running lane for him.

The final TD came from Korbin Barck on a 10 yard scamper. The Bulldogs did give up a score late in the 4th, but were able to hold onto their lead comfortably at the end.

The 8th grade team has one final game vs Panorama on October 17th beginning at 4pm.
