Bulldogs Destroy Trinity Tigers, WOODVILLE, November 16, 2015 - The Corrigan-Camden Bulldogs went to Woodville on Friday night (11/13/15) and played host to the Trinity Tigers in the first round of the high school playoffs. After giving up an early score to the Tigers, the Dogs kept calm and methodically dissected and dismembered the Tigers offensively, defensively, and special teamsly in a thumping that the Tigers wont soon forget.

This was a game that the Bulldogs really needed to give them the confidence boost that they need as they prepare for the next round of the playoffs. After losing to Trinity in a pre-district game early in the season, the Dogs entered this game as the underdogs (no pun intended). From the git go, the Dogs just seemed confident, cocky, and seemed to have a swagger and weren't going to be pushed around. The two biggest glaring mistakes that I saw the Dogs make was giving up a long run to Trinity on their first play from scrimmage that set up a Trinity TD. And a special teams mishap when they allowed the Tigers to return a kickoff for the distance. The other two Tiger touchdowns were late in the game in slop time after the game was all but over. Sophomore Quarterback, Ty Love has matured fast since taking over quarterbacking job, and LaKendrick Moore has proven to be an effective running back. The defensive leadership of Seniors LaDarrius Hamilton and Jarvoris Brooks has the whole defensive unit playing inspired football. By the fourth quarter of this game, the Tigers looked like they had no momentum at all and no wind in their sails. The Tigers looked like a defeated team. The Dogs will need to continue this high intensity, emotion, and inspired play as things will only get harder. The next game is against Dublin and I don't know where it's to be played, but when we find out, it'll be posted on this website. In the meantime, enjoy the highlight reel (as always, filmed edited and produced by Willie A. Openshaw).
