BULLDOGS ADVANCE WITH SHUTOUT WIN
Monday, November 07, 2016

MIDLAND CITY – With the Dale County Warriors hanging tough with No. 4 UMS-Wright, the Bulldogs used a couple of special teams plays to turn momentum in a big way.The Bulldogs blocked a 23-yard field goal attempt from the Warriors then returned a blocked punt for a touchdown in a 36-0 playoff victory over the Warriors. With the victory UMS-Wright (9-2) advances to the second round, where it will host Handley.Dale County (7-4) concluded a turnaround season – bouncing back from a 1-9 record in 2015.After giving up a quick score to UMS-Wright on a 54-yard touchdown run from Michael Matthews, the Warrior defense stunted a few Bulldog drives.That allowed the offense time to find a little bit of rhythm and drive inside the Bulldogs’ 5 midway through the second quarter. On fourth and goal from inside the 2, though, Dale County was flagged for delay of game, backing it up 5 yards.The Warriors, down 7-0, opted for a 23-yard field goal attempt. The Bulldogs surged through the middle, though, and blocked it to keep Dale County off the board.Riding momentum, the UMS-Wright offense launched an eight-play, 80-yard drive. Matthews carried the ball the entire way, finishing the possession with an 11-yard touchdown run with 2:11 left in the first half.

Just how good was the UMS-Wright defense on Friday night at E.E. Delaney Stadium?

Officials incorrectly awarded St. Paul's six plays following a first-and-goal situation late in the third quarter.

It didn't turn out to be enough. UMS stopped the Saints -- twice, in fact -- on fourth-and-goal on that series and went on to a convincing 28-7 win in the Battle of Old Shell Road.
