Bulldogs homecoming game a success

Published 12:05 am Saturday, October 6, 2018

The Bulldogs hosted Great Bridge High School for homecoming night and dominated 52-6.

One could say Friday night’s game was a bit of redemption for Coach Scottie Littles and the Bulldogs. In Littles’ first season in 2016, King’s Fork actually lost its homecoming game to Great Bridge. However, the Bulldogs made sure this time around that homecoming was going to be a night everyone could enjoy. There were a lot of alumni there for the game as well as former players who were on the Bulldogs’ championship team from last season.

“It was a lot of good energy out there,” Littles said. “It was good for the guys to experience that and it was good for us to go out there and get a win.”

King’s Fork scored 22 points in the first quarter. Bobby Boone added a couple of explosive touchdowns with Marc Dyer heating up from the pocket. In the second quarter, the Bulldogs put up another 17 points, giving them a 39-0 lead at halftime.

“We rolled on all three phases of the game,” Littles said. “The kids played hard, and we were able to get everybody involved. That’s what it’s about.”

Dyer finished with more than 200 yards passing and a couple of touchdowns. Kahari Rodgers had some big plays and scored a couple of touchdowns for the Bulldogs even scoring one on special teams.

“We finally put the pieces together out there,” Boone said. “We can still improve on some things. It was good that we were able to come out and bounce back from a loss.”

King’s Fork will have to go on the road next week and face a tough Indian River High School team.
