Tiger attack too much for Bulldogs

The King’s Fork High School football took a 49-0 loss to Oscar Smith High School on the road Friday night.

It was a long night for the Bulldogs. For the first time this season, King’s Fork was unable to get in the end zone, and the loss dropped the Bulldogs to 2-4. Despite not scoring, however, Coach Kermit Buggs liked the way the team battled.

“We had opportunities we didn’t capitalize on, but we just have to continue to progress,” Buggs said. “We just have to keep working at it. We continued to compete, though, which is always good.”

The Bulldogs did have a couple of opportunities in Tigers territory to get on the scoreboard but couldn’t. Also, a blocked field goal by the Tigers kept three points off the board for the Bulldogs.

“Can’t make mistakes against a team like that, because they’ll definitely capitalize on it,” Buggs said. “We just have to do a better job of understanding what we are doing and just continuing execution.”

King’s Fork will look to end its recent losing skid against Great Bridge High School at home this Friday. It’s homecoming week for the Bulldogs, so Bugg believes it will be a great opportunity for the Bulldogs to bounce back while also still trying to make a playoff push.

“It’s homecoming for us, so I know we’ll be excited about that,” Buggs said. “We are also trying to make that playoff push. We feel like we are through the gauntlet of the district, and with these last couple of games, we have a chance to make a push for the playoffs going forward.”
