Sluggish Indians Ease
Past Dogs, 27-17
Friday, August 19, 2005
VIDALIA- The 3rd-ranked Indians unveiled
their new stadium with a win over a scrappy bunch of Dogs. After
being dominated for three quarters by the Indians, the Dogs scored two
quick TDs in the 4th quarter to make the Indian faithful somewhat
The Indians scored first
when Rafael Roundtree burst through a hole on the left side to take a
7-0 lead. Rudy Butler scored Vidalia's second TD around the right
side with 1:47 remaining in the half. The PAT was no good and
Vidalia led 13-0.
The Dogs returned the
ensuing kickoff to midfield. With the clock against them, the Dogs
ran a couple of quick hitting plays to move the ball down to the 15-yd
line and was forced to kick a field goal. Brandon Anderson, the
best Bulldogs place-kicker in years, nailed the field goal on the
last play of the half to cut the Indians lead to 13-3.
The Indians scored again
in the 3rd quarter with a 20-yard pass to up their lead to 21-3 with a
successful 2-pt PAT. A minute and a half later, the Indians picked
off a Lollis pass for a TD to make it 27-3.
The 4th quarter belonged
to the Dogs. The Dogs put together the best drive of the night
after Reed's score, moving the ball 65 yards and eating up six minutes
on the clock. Lollis hit Zack Schofill on an 11-yard slant for the
TD and Anderson kicked the PAT to cut the Indians lead to 27-10 with
A couple of minutes later
the Indian punter bobbled the snap while in punt formation and was
drilled by two Dog rushers. Sophomore linebacker Josh Sikes
scooped up the bouncing ball and ran untouched to the end zone.
Anderson's PAT was again perfect.
Things got really
interesting when Vidalia was held and was forced to punt. Again,
the punter bobbled the snap and was forced out on the Indian 16.
Vidalia's defense stiffened and the FG by Anderson sailed wide right.
Just when Vidalia was
beginning to feel good about themselves, Roundtree fumbled and gave the Dogs
one more scoring opportunity. But the Indians defense held one
more time and was able to run out the clock.

Dogs Big Comeback Earns Victory Over
Tough Screven Co., 20-13
Friday, September 20, 2005
LYONS---The Pit claimed another
victim this Friday night and the outcome was very costly for the
Gamecocks. With the top spot in the East Division at stake the
Dogs scratched and gnawed their way back from a 13-0 deficit.
Screven County scored twice in the first quarter to
jump to a commanding 13-0 lead. But Toombs County roared back behind
senior quarterback Logan Lollis, who scored two touchdowns and completed
5-of-9 passes for 47 yards.
Late in the third quarter, Toombs County's Jakob Roach
punched over the goal line from the 2, and Brandon Anderson's extra
point gave the Bulldogs their first lead of the evening at 14-13. Lollis
would add to the cushion with a 5-yard run in the fourth quarter, but
the Bulldogs still needed an interception with less than 10 seconds to
play to seal the outcome.
The Dogs will travel to Savannah next week to take on a Savannah
Christian team that seem to have righted the ship after a slow start and
is now playing their best football. SCPS will have motivation
coming into the game. 1) home field advantage. 2) revenge
for their only loss in regular season to the Dogs last year. 3)
will the Dogs be able to bring the same intensity level two weeks in a
row? We shall see.
SCPS Bury Dogs, 20-6

SAVANNAH---As the final horn sounded at Garden City Stadium, it was
apparent that the Savannah Christian defense has become a force to be
The Red Raiders (6-3, 5-1 Region 3-AA East) held Toombs County to
only 20 yards of offense over the first 46 minutes as they ran away with
a 20-6 victory.
The Bulldogs put together an 80-yard scoring drive
over the final 1:48, denying Savannah Christian its fourth consecutive
shutout when Logan Hollis connected with Demery Hawkins for an 8-yard
touchdown as time expired.
The expected defensive struggle played out until the
fourth quarter, when the Red Raiders scored 17 points to wrest control
of the game.
"We knew that this was going to be a very
physical game, so we planned on trying to keep it even until the fourth
and hope we were able to wear them out," said Savannah Christian
coach Donald Chumley. "We normally push people around up front, but
weren't able to do that this time, so I'm very proud of how well our
offensive line and backfield responded."
Josh Clemens did the bulk of the work for the Red
Raiders, carrying the ball 37 times for 155 yards as Savannah Christian
held the ball for more than 34 minutes.
In doing so, the Red Raiders outgained Toombs County
(6-2, 4-1) 330-100.
"We did the same thing against Screven County; I
carried 35 times in that game," said Clemens. "This was a
tough game against the hardest-hitting defense I've ever played. It's a
big win for us."
Savannah Christian's dominance was particularly
striking in the first half, when it held the ball for nearly 20 minutes
and held the Bulldogs to only 11 yards.
Clemens carried the ball 23 times for 100 yards to
keep the Toombs offense on the sidelines.
The Red Raiders kept the Bulldogs reeling by switching
to the pass late in the half.
Justin Clemens' first completion was a 64-yard pass to
James McKinzie, who stepped out of bounds with 3 seconds left in the
half, setting up the first score of the game, a 22-yard field goal by
Clemens was 4-for-4 in the second half, finishing with
143 yards and two scores through the air.
His first scoring pass was a 23-yard strike to Tyler
Sumner with 8:15 left.
"He's my cousin, so it was nice to feel like
backyard football again by hooking up with him," said Sumner, who
also picked off a pass on a fake punt attempt in the fourth quarter.
"We really wanted to keep our shutout streak going, but it's just
nice to have the win."
"In 12 years here, we've never been as physically
whipped as we were tonight," said Toombs coach Mark Stroud.
"Coming in, we felt like we could get something going on offense,
but we were never able to. My hat's off to Savannah Christian, because
that's a good team."
With the win, Savannah Christian has assured itself of
at least a share of the subregion title and a possible No. 1 seed for
the first round of the playoffs.
