The Boling Bulldogs (1-2) will be looking to pick up their second win of the year this Friday, Sept. 27 at home when they play the Edna Cowboys (3-1).
In week four, the Bulldogs picked up a big win over Westbury Christian at home. The offense which was slowed against East Bernard two weeks ago, ran, ran and ran some more against Westbury Christian.
Overall the Bulldogs rushed the ball for a massive 569 yards. The offense scored on nine of their 11 drives. Boling’s offense stuck quickly with only two drives lasting more than five plays.
Everything was clicking at home and the Bulldogs will find out Friday if the momentum will still be there when they play Edna, which went four rounds deep in the playoffs last season.
“It was nice to see us have success offensively, but that does not mean anything when we play Edna,” Bulldogs coach Kevin Urbanek said. “Edna will be much better at all phases of the game.”
Edna is coming off a home loss to East Bernard. The Cowboys led in the first half, but they couldn’t hold on as East Bernard scored 27 unanswered points.
On the season, the Cowboys have run the ball for 1,200 yards, getting 5.6 yards a carry. However, East Bernard’s defense limited the Cowboys to 3.3 yards a carry.
Boling’s defense will have a lot to deal with Friday. Edna ran the ball 64 times against East Bernard and the Bulldogs will have to hold them to modest gains or it’s going to be a long night.
Outside of Boling’s game with East Bernard, the offensive line has opened up big holes for the running game. Against Hallettsville, it ran the ball for just under eight yards a carry.
If the offense has another big day Friday night, it might end non-district play with an even record before they start district.
The Bulldogs will have their bye next week before they start district play.
East Bernard plays away again
For the second consecutive week, the East Bernard Brahmas will play away when they take on Van Vleck, Friday, Sept. 27.
EBHS will face a team that is 2-1, and desperately trying to avoid losing two games in a row.
Even worse, Van Vleck had its lowest output of the young season when it lost to a Second Baptist (of Houston), 55-14.
VV had scored in the 40s twice against Houston ISD schools Wheatley and Kashmere.
EBHS is 4-0.
