About the only thing to put a damper on the Bulldogs' 55-6 homecoming win over Roaring Fork was the little bit of rain that fell at the end of the first period.
Two touchdown runs by Jacobe Galley, a 28-yard pass play from Josh Hardin to Colton Farmer and a 5-yard scoring run by Trenton Tamayo gave Hotchkiss a 29-0 lead just 10 minutes into the first quarter.
On the final play of the quarter, Bulldog Colton Pearce recovered a fumble on the Rams' 19, and on the opening play of the second period, Galley ran the ball 19 yards for his third touchdown of the game. His PAT gave Hotchkiss a 36-0 lead with 11:55 remaining in the half.
After the kickoff (a touchback by Galley), Hank Edwards intercepted a Rams' pass and returned the ball 10 yards to the Roaring Fork five, setting up a touchdown run by Trenton Tamayo to set the continuous clock into motion with just over 10 minutes remaining in the half. The PAT gave the Bulldogs a 43-0 lead.
The junior varsity team played the entire second half. Early in the third period, Caleb Schelle returned an interception 19 yards to the Rams' 10, setting up a pass play from quarterback Devan Rupe to River Panish. Panish added another touchdown run in the fourth period. The Rams scored their sole touchdown late in the third.
Hardin was 5-6 for 65 yards, including one touchdown and one 2-point conversion pass. He also had six carries for 36 yards.blog comments powered by Disqus
