The Bulldogs defeated Grassfield 33-10 in another solid defensive outing for the Bulldogs.

Leo Wethington got things started with a nine-yard run in the first quarter to give the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead. King’s Fork went into halftime with a 13-0 lead after an interception return for a touchdown by Kevin Williams. The Bulldogs had multiple turnovers for touchdowns Saturday afternoon with a total of five interceptions. Qua’Shaun Jackson added a turnover for a touchdown in the third quarter.

It wasn’t until the fourth quarter where Grassfield was able to score a touchdown. Marc Dyer and Loyd Favors added big scores for the Bulldogs. Overall, the Bulldogs move to 4-0 on a solid effort and are picking up where they left off in the district last season.

“It was good to get that experience playing on a Saturday,” Littles said. “It was good getting a win and making it through a tough week of preparation. Our defense played well, and we can keep getting better.”

“We feel like we have been playing good football, but once we put the pieces together, we’ll be even better,” senior Bobby Boone said.

The Bulldogs are always striving to be better, and that’s one thing that’s been in common from coaches down to the players. They still feel they all can be better, and everyone feels like the best in still in front of this team.

“We always feel like there is room for improvement,” Jay’ree Hardy added. “We look past our wins and focus on one game at a time.”

King’s Fork will have a showdown coming up this Friday when they host Nansemond River High School. The Bulldogs are the reigning city champions and will try to remain that this year, with the Warriors coming up and the Cavs still left on the schedule.
