Ashville defeats White Plains 35-21
The Bulldogs traveled to White Plains Friday night and came away with a 35-21 victory. With the win, the Bulldogs improved to 3-6 on the season and 2-5 in region play. The Wildcats remained winless after the loss on their senior night. The Bulldogs out-gained the Wildcats, 310 yards of total offense to their 213. "We were sloppy in a lot of ways, but I was proud of their effort," head coach Steve Martin said, "I thought that we did enough to win the game, and I'm proud of them."
Despite the win, penalties and turnovers plagued the Bulldogs. They finished with six fumbles and 17 penalties for a combined 170 yards. Martin said when asked about this after the game, "Wer'e just going to have to keep working; we haven't been bad at that all of the time, but we were tonight."
QB Landon Cornutt went 6 for 11, passing for 87 yards and one passing TD on the evening to go along with 62 yards on the ground and three rushing TDs. Kyle King added 184 yards rushing with one TD.
The Bulldogs return home next week to face West End. The Patriots demolished Winston County by a score of 73-28. "It would mean a lot [to get a win]," Martin said, "It's progress, and we need to keep making progress."
Kickoff is slated for 7:00pm at Kin Logan Stadium on Friday, October 28th.
