by Dennis Sharkey

The McLouth Bulldogs continued their early season dominance over Jefferson County teams with a 52-6 clobbering of Valley Falls on Friday.

Bulldog tailback Shawn Dailey

The only bright spot for the Dragons came in the second quarter when a fumble was recovered by the Dragons and returned to the Bulldog 35 yard line. Quarterback Brock Watson found Monty Gier for a 22-yard touchdown pass that made the score 37-6. A two-point conversion by the Dragons failed.

The Bulldogs, who are averaging 49.5 points through two games, used a potent running game that racked up more than 400 yards on the ground despite missing top tailback Alex Courtney for the second straight week due to a knee injury suffered during a preseason scrimmage.

The Bulldogs used a long 10 play drive to open the game that culminated in the first of Shawn Dailey’s three rushing touchdowns. Dailey led the bulldogs with 116 yards rushing on 14 carries.

Both teams had trouble holding on to the ball as the ball was fumbled multiple times by both teams but was recovered by the offense.

The Bulldogs were just as dominate on defense holding Valley Falls to negative yardage until late in the second quarter on the Dragons’ only scoring drive. The Bulldogs also got a safety when Alen Kramer sacked Watson in the end zone during the second quarter.

Bulldogs’ quarterback Marc Walbridge ran the offense effectively and used his team’s running game to set up some key passes. Walbridge found Tim Culter for his only touchdown pass that went for 20 yards. He finished the game 5 of 7 passing for 60 yards. Walbridge was also the team’s second leading rusher with 89 yards on nine carries and a touchdown.

Dakota Cop and Jack Courtney also had rushing touchdowns. John Berry hit a 19-yard field goal for the Bulldogs.

The game was delayed nearly two hours because of lightning.
