Bulldog Sports News
Friday Night Lights by Coach Bagby
The Bulldogs traveled to Wimberley Friday night to take on the highly ranked Texans. The weather couldn’t have been any better for a marquee matchup under the Friday Night Lights. Both teams entered the contest unbeaten in district play. The Texans had a fast start and all the breaks, that would lead to the Bulldogs first loss of the season. The final score was Bandera Bulldogs 28, Wimberley Texans 56.
The Bulldog defense struggled with the efficient Texan passing attack in the first half of play, but would rebound to hold them to only 14 points in the 2nd half. Wimberley scored 4 touchdowns in the 1st quarter. Bandera would answer once in the 1st quarter...after a 50 yard big pass play from Gunnar Brown to Tommy Cardenas, Tommy would punch it in from the wildcat QB position from 4 yards out. The score at the end of the 1st quarter was Wimberley 28 and Bandera 7.
In the 2nd quarter the Texans would get on the board first with 2 scores. Bandera answered with a solid drive and a 7 yard TD run by Tommy Cardenas right before the halftime buzzer. Bandera would go in to the half, down 42-14. This was uncharted waters for the Bulldogs this season. When many teams would shut it down in this situation, the Bulldogs did the complete opposite. They came out in the 2nd half and played every play hard until the final buzzer! This is the kind of characteristic that good playoff teams possess.
Good blocks from the trio of Logan Williams, Gunnar Brown and Trace Decker, led to a 59 yard TD run and a 23 yard TD by Tommy Cardenas in the 3rd quarter. Blaise Slazar stayed a perfect 4 for 4 on extra points. Gage Brown recovered an onside kick by Cristian Gonzalez to give the Bulldogs some momentum and a chance at a comeback...it just wasn’t in the cards. However, this game showed the mental toughness and physical toughness of this special group. It didn’t end the way we wanted, but it was a “Dog fight” for 4 quarters and the Bulldogs never retreated or surrendered. I was dang proud of the fight in these Dogs!
Gunnar Brown and Tommy Cardenas did a solid job of filling in for Solomon MacNeil (it was a lot on their plate - with a new game plan against a highly ranked team). Gunnar Brown had 100 yards passing and ran extremely tough all night. Tommy Cardenas had 4 touchdowns, 221 yards rushing and 55 yards receiving...his punishing runs and breakaway speed was a problem for the Wimberley defense (even with them keying him all night).
Your Bandera Bulldogs are 6-1. We have a home game vs Llano this Friday night. Come out and support this TEAM as we regroup and look for win #7...at our house!!!
