Dawgs fall to Ducks in final seconds

It was four quarter of fast-paced football Friday night in Taylor with the entire game lasting just over two hours and that’s including the 30-minute halftime show.
The first half was played in fair weather but those conditions deteriorated as the game went on.
The slippery football created turn-over problems for each team, but it was an unlikely, rushed, 35-yard Duck field-goal with rain coming down that decided the contest with just seven-seconds until finish.
Burnet received the opening kick and Jordan Barnard sprinted out to the 36 to give Burnet nice starting field position.
Blayne Parisher kick-started the offense with a 7-yard reception and Trent Hafley moved the chains with a 12-yard scamper.
Parisher pulled the Dawgs out of a third and 10 hole with a short catch that he turned into a 19-yard first down producing run to the Duck 25.
A screen from Derek Kiser to Cameron Langley netted 15 more steps to the nine behind a nice James Nesom lead block.
Hafley drove to the five and Jake McElroy took the honors from there shedding a would be tackler and plunging in for the game’s first score.
Austin Huff’s point after hit the mark giving the Bulldogs a 7-0 advantage. It was a nine-play, 66-yard drive that took 3:47 off the clock.For a complete recap of Friday's game as well as stats pick-up Wednesday's Burnet Bulletin.
