Dawgs drop first outing

It’s always hard to get a season of any kind started on the road, but half of the teams have to do just that from year to year, as was the case Friday night .

The Bulldogs traveled across the state line and the Cumberland River to take on the Bulldogs of Clay (Celina) County, Tennessee.

Matching the Tennessee Bulldogs through a scoreless first half, Clinton County reportedly just wore down against a good Clay County team, eventually giving up a 25-0 loss.

Clay County was apparently a formidable opponent, stretching their record out now to the 2-0 mark after opening with a 33-0 win over Monroe County, Kentucky.

Our Bulldogs will take on Monroe County on September 20.

Up next for our Dawgs are two more road games before their home opener, traveling to McCreary Central this Friday night, September 6, taking a break for another off-night on Friday, September 13, then hitting the road again for the September 20 Monroe County game.

Clinton County faces a McCreary Central (3A) squad that also suffered a loss in its first game, a 28-14 loss to Pineville.

The Dawgs will play on Bulldog Field for the first time this season when they play host to Metcalfe County on September 27.

Volley Dawgs continue to roll

Our Volley Dawgs continue to rake in the “W’s”, taking their record to an 8-0 mark going into this week’s lineup of matches.

The Dawgs were to take on Green County this Tuesday, Cumberland County on Thursday, both at home, then traveling to Livingston Academy on Friday.

Good luck Dawgs!

In the meantime – let’s take it outside for a few months!
