The second half opened up by a Ryder Sears hit that jolted the Warrior kick returner to fumble the ball, and the Dogs recovered in Warrior territory. On the next play, Stanley found Mike Polke on a 28yard TD pass increasing the lead to 28-0.
The next Warrior drive was snuffed out to a 3 and out but a roughing the kicker penalty on the punt gave the Warriors an automatic first down and retained possession. Two plays later, Heyward picked a Warrior pass and raced 35-yards for another Bulldog TD. Dietrich’s point after gave the Dogs a 35-0 lead with 7:35 left in the 3rd quarter.
The Dogs ran only 6 offensive plays following that due to a running clock in the 4th quarter. Alex Scott and Zyrese Scott highlighted the defense with 11 total tackles each.
The Bulldogs improve to 5-0 and 1-0 in Region play. This is the first 5-0 start for Toombs since 2017. Next up, the Bulldogs will host the Brantley County Herons at Booster Stadium this Friday night with kickoff at 8:00 p.m.
