Bulldogs Season Comes To An End
Monday, 12 November 2012
Nov 12th---

The Toombs County Bulldogs saw their 2012 Football season come to an end Monday night as they fell to Benedictine 6-0 and Bacon County 7-0 in the Region 2AA Tie-breaker Mini-games held in Long County.


In game one, Benedictine held the Dogs scoreless in their possessions and scored the only points in the game in the 2nd five minute half on a 19-yard pass from Stevie Powers to Joseph Raines to make it 6-0 with 3:57 left to go in the game. Toombs County saw their chance for a comeback end when Benedictine intercepted a Ben Brantley pass with less than a minute to play.


In game two, the Dogs took on Bacon County and on their first possession of the game moved the ball down the field inside the Bacon County five only to turn the ball over again on an interception to end the first half. In the 2nd half the Dogs defense held the Red Raiders scoreless and forced overtime with both teams play-off hopes on the line.


Bacon Co. took possession first and made it count, when on the 3rd play of overtime Bacon County QB Matt Thrift under pressure, threw up a prayer from the 10 yard line and Amertrius Williams out jumped the Toombs defender in the corner of the end zone for the score. Following the extra point the score was 7-0. Toombs lost yardage on their first two plays and then was called for an offensive pass interference on third down, which set up a 4th and 33. On the 4th down play Brantley tried to go down the middle for the score, but was once again intercepted, this time at the one, to secure the win for Bacon Co. 7-0.


The Dogs finish their season at 7-3, while Bacon and Benedictine both advance to the state play-offs. Benedictine will go in as the 3 seed from 2AA and will travel to Augusta to face Laney this weekend, while Bacon Co. will get the number one seed from Region 3AA the Screven County Gamecocks in Sylvania.
