After a great week of weather and Homecoming events, Bulldog nation settled into Wayne Schneider Stadium looking to be dazzled by the 5-1 Bulldogs. Unfortunately, the Dogs allowed Tokay to grab the lead just before halftime leaving the Bulldogs and their fans a bit silent and perplexed. The coaching staff huddled just outside the team room, and made some minor adjustments that paid big dividends in the 2nd half. Coach Pribble reminded his players that there was a large crowd out there waiting for the team to erupt and the Bulldogs did just that quickly collecting 21 points in the 3rd and another 7 in the 4th to secure their 2nd league win and achieve a solid 6-1 record.
