Dawgs move to 2-0

Posted September 5, 2018 at 8:44 am


The Clinton County Bulldogs got off to a great start to its 2018 season by only allowing six points in its first two games.

Friday night’s game saw the Dawgs pull off a 62-0 victory over McCreary Central to move to 2-0 on the year.

Head Coach Jamie Miller is proud of his team and hopes to continue the success one game at a time.

On the opening kick off, Clinton County fumbled the ball which was the Dawg’s first turnover of the year.

“It wasn’t a good sign, but we took care of it the rest of the night,” Head Coach Jamie Miller said. “After that first drive we settled in and pretty much controlled the game.”

Dylan Groce ran the ball for 195 yards rushing and Noah Pruitt went for 185 yards rushing.

“We didn’t throw the ball very much, but then again we didn’t need to,” Miller said. “I think we had 50 something yards passing. We attempted a few passes, but it just wasn’t in the cards. Depending on what the defense is showing, we will throw the ball more in some games than in others.”

One thing that helped the running game Friday night was the fact that the offensive line was creating the holes for the runners to find.

“They did a great job,” Miller said. “We have things working well right now. I’m not going to say these two teams are high caliber teams because they are not, but I do feel like we are playing very well.”

This week, Clinton County will travel to neighboring Pickett County, Tennessee to take on the Bobcats. Last season, Clinton County defeated the Bobcats 68-0.

Friday night’s game is set for a 7 p.m. kick-off time.

Dylan Groce ran the ball early in Friday night’s game against McCreary Central. Clinton County won the game 62-0. Groce finished with 195 yards rushing.
