Bulldogs Balanced Offense Impressive!
Brett Wilson Sr.
The Somerset Bulldogs beat the Kingsville King team Friday, September 28th to bring their record to 4 wins with only 1 loss! One more game to go against Hondo before starting District play against Poteet on October 12th! Poteet is also ending this week with a 4–1 record, and Pleasanton is looking good at 5–0.
The Bulldogs looked like they had the game sewed up twice before Kingsville came roaring back at the end of the first half, then again at the end of the game. Somerset was ahead 28 to 7 with about 5 minutes to go in the first half when King scored twice to close the gap to 28-21 at halftime. A failed onside kick attempt helped give up field position on one possession. In the second half the Bulldogs surged ahead 42-21 before King again pulled back to make it a close game.
The Bulldog offense piled up over 500 yards, with 219 in the air and over 300 on the ground! Koy Detmer was 10-14 passing, throwing for 4 touchdowns. Donny Perez ran the ball 30 times, going over 200 yards for the second time this year! Josh Ramos had 3 catches for 79 yards and 2 touchdowns, with Rocky Reyna and Eden Rodriguez each getting 2 receptions.
Donny Perez has 600 rushing yards for the season so far, with 4 rushing touchdowns! Most of Perez's yards have come from busting through defenders up the middle. Koy Detmer has over 1100 yards passing, 13 passes going for touchdowns!
Justin Guerra has 14 receptions, 3 for touchdowns. Rocky Reyna has 13 catches with 5 going in for the score. Josh Ramos has 11 catches with 3 also going in for the score. Eden Rodriguez has almost 400 yards rushing and receiving with 3 touchdowns.
Josh Ramos made, a catch in the second quarter at the 5 yard line, and was hit at the goal line. Josh pushed all 3 defenders back to score the touchdown. Great determination!
Dallas Cowboys 2-1
Face the Bears Tomorrow
As I write this, the Dallas Cowboys are sitting at 2-1, and facing the Chicago Bears tomorrow on Monday Night Football. Tony Romo has taken some big hits this year and the Bears have a good pass rush. This game will be a tough test for an offensive line that has not been great so far this year. However, I think they will start to put things together and this could be a turning point for this season. Go Cowboys!
