Dawgs are back on Bulldog Field Friday

Clinton County is off to another great start in gridiron action this year after handing the Colonels of Caverna a beat down defeat Friday night, 54-6.

This Friday night the Bulldogs will play host to the Hornets from just down the road in Metcalfe County in a contest that will include a host of special events during the night (more on that later).

The Bulldogs are now off to a 4-0 start on the season and that ties last year’s starting record for the best ever thus far.

Of course Coach Jamie Miller and crew will be aiming to one-up that this Friday night when they play host to the Hornets. Opening kick-off is slated for 7:00 p.m.

Friday night’s game will be the only back to back home field appearances for Clinton County this season. The next three games will find the Bulldogs in travel mode.

The Hornets, like Clinton County, are playing in 2-A classification, and are coming to Bulldog Field in hopes of picking up their second win of a season that so far has seen them put together only one win against four losses this year.

The Bulldogs fell last year to Metcalfe in a close contest in Edmonton, 29-26.

Kick-off time at 7:00 could see some rain, possibly even thunderstorms, which might mean game delays. Jackets, toboggans and rain gear would be suggested. Temperatures are expected to be nice, however, with kick-off air in the upper to mid 60s.

Homecoming Friday night, as well as a look to

our gridiron future

There will be plenty of pomp and circumstance on Bulldog Field Friday night for the local version of Friday Night Lights.

Homecoming festivities will begin at 6:30 p.m., according to info from “Mrs. Coach”, Trisha Miller.

Also, expect to give support to the future of Clinton County football teams when young guys are recognized at halftime.

Following the halftime show from the Clinton County High School Band, the youth football teams will be brought onto the field and introduced with players and coaches from first through sixth grade leagues being recognized.

Volley Dawgs go 2-2 at All ‘A”

Our Volley Dawgs returned home from last week’s All “A” Classic State Tournament after a 2-2 showing, with wins over Oneida Baptist and West Carter, giving up losses to St. Henry and Washington County.

Clinton County bounced back on Monday night, getting right back into regular season action with a 3-2 win over Allen County – Scottsville to go 14-4 on the year.

Action continues through early October, but the Volley Dawgs will be on the road until next Monday when they host Metcalfe County in the Castle.
