Dawgs fall to Wylie in home opener

Burnet senior Cory Cavender sweeps the left corner after a handoff and picks up good yards for the Dawgs on a solid run. Burnet dropped their home opener Friday night to Abilene Wylie which brought each team’s record even at 1-1. The Bulldogs defeated Marble Falls in week one play, while Wylie came up just short to Argyle, last year’s 3A state champion.

By Wayne Craig.

Friday night was a great battle between two quality teams as highly ranked Abilene Wylie came to Burnet for some gridiron action. If you weren’t at the game the score doesn’t necessarily indicate how close things could have been.

Bulldogs weather the storm

Burnet RB Eric Walker leaps into the endzone at 12:27 a.m. for the game winning overtime touchdown against Marble Falls in the season opener on Friday night. The Bulldogs won the contest 51-45.

By Wayne Craig.

The 2014 county grudge match will for sure be one to remember. As far as records show it was the first time the Bulldogs started a game on Friday, played straight through, and didn’t finish until Saturday. There was an hour rain delay that pushed the start back, and it was 12:27 a.m. when Burnet running back Eric Walker went airborne in overtime to put the final nail in the coffin.

Pictured above four athletes who will be eager to compete, Burnet wide receiver, Cody Jones; Marble Falls guard, Hanner Shipley; Burnet outside linebacker, Jes Craig; and Marble Falls quarterback, Brennen Wooten.

For years the Burnet versus Marble Falls rivalry has been the talk of the towns leading up to game day, but what about the other 364 days a year? Can a Bulldog and a Mustang be friends? It’s a heated rivalry at times, and at one point the game was even taken off the schedule for several years.
