Big John Orlandi held down the defensive line and was responsible for 2 fumble recoveries. Eli Edwards also had an interception.

8th grade football
Tuesday night, the 8th Grade football team took it on the chin against the Vikings from Jackson in a 36-16 loss.
The Dawgs fell behind early and came out strong in the second half in their comeback attempt. Scoring for the Bulldogs was Landon Barkey on a quarterback sneak, and Gibby Ichesco on a 61-yard run. Ichesco also converted the 2-point conversion after both touchdowns.
The offensive line led by Cooper Adams, Palmer Hurst, Ethan Fody, Matthew Harris, Thomas Szpara, Luke Szpara, Caleb Fitch, and others made great blocks in the second half, opening up big holes on the two scoring drives. Defensively, Hurst and Adams led the way.
The 8th grade team has a bye next Tuesday and they look to improve in all facets before their next game in two weeks.
