Bulldogs head to Tompkinsville for playoff start

After handing the Jackson Generals a 51-20 thumping Friday night on Bulldog Field, the Bulldogs closed out regular season play with a nice 6-3 record.

Congrats to Coach Rocky Tallent and company on a successful season.

Now we head to the first round of the Bluegrass Bowl playoffs to face the Falcons of Monroe County in the opening round.

The goal, of course, is to advance to the second round and take on the winner of the other District playoff game between Edmonson County and Green County, also being played this Friday night in Brownsville.

But, first things first – this Friday night’s opening round game at Tompkinsville will see the Dawgs taking on the Falcons.

Clinton County lost a two touchdown decision to the Falcons by a score of 28-14 in a September 20 matchup in Tompkinsville.

The Falcons bring a .500 regular season record to the opening round playoff game against the Bulldogs, finishing with a 5-5 mark after a season ending loss to the Patriots of Allen County – Scottsville this past Friday night, 49-32.

Our game against Monroe County is a 7:00 p.m. kickoff and it looks to be another great night, weather-wise, for Friday night lights – partly cloudy skies, a slight breeze and a temperature just above the freezing mark for most of the game. Bring the gloves, toboggans and a blanket.

And good luck Dawgs!

Meet the Bulldogs date still up in the air

As I mentioned last week, the annual basketball kick-off the event, Meet the Bulldogs, is set to go off weekend after this, either on Friday, November 15 or Saturday, November 16.

More details will come next week in a front-page article as well as in this space. A firm date will be determined following this Friday night’s football playoff game.

In the meantime-let’s take it outside while we still can!
