Good openers for sub-varsity

BY WAYNE CRAIG/BURNET BULLETIN

 

The JV and freshman Bulldogs opened their 2016 football season on Thursday with games in Austin against Reagan. No extended stats were available for the freshman game but it was known that Burnet shutdown and shutout their opponent, 24-0.

In the JV game Austin Reagan scored in the first quarter on an 11-yard run. They took an 8-0 lead after successfully cashing in a two-point conversion.

Burnet answered in the second quarter with a 1-yard touchdown run by Ryan Jackson, but the conversion failed leaving the Dawgs trailing, 8-6.

The second half produced no scoring by either team. A late Burnet drive had team green moving quickly down the field but a questionable penalty put them in a big hole and they were unable to score. The game ended in Reagan’s favor, 8-6.

Despite the outcome it was a well fought battle by the JV. Many expect good things from this team moving into the season.
