The Bulldog football team traveled to Redfield on Friday, August 31, to take on the Redfield-Doland Pheasants. The Bulldogs started strong when Jake Sandvig blocked a punt in the first quarter and returned it for a seven-yard touchdown.
Coach Adolph Shepardson praised the squad for playing in the latest northeastern South Dakota weather conditions, “The boys played a tough game against Redfield. It was hot and muggy and a true test of grit, but we were able to battle through it and get a win! The defense really shut them down – holding them to eight and harassing their QB most of the night.”
The second quarter added another score to the Bulldogs side of the scoreboard when tight en Alec Bien ran in a three-yard touchdown pass from quarterback, Kaden Krause.
Krause kept working the Bulldog receivers through the remainder of the game, passing to Riley Gauer in the third quarter for a 54-yard touchdown and connecting with Alec Bien again in the fourth for a 25-yard touchdown. “The offense did a nice job of controlling the clock and moving the football both in the air and on the ground. Kaden Krause made his first varsity start and had a great game,” Shepardson said.
When the clock ran out, the humidity was so thick there was fog on the field – but the scoreboard stood clear – Bulldogs 25, Pheasants 8.
