Corrigan Knocked from Playoffs by Kirbyville Again, LUFKIN, November 14, 2009 - On Friday November 13, 2009, the Corrigan Bulldogs varsity football team showed up to play against a Kirbyville team that was just too much for Corrigan. The Dogs played spirited football and actually led early in the first half. The Dogs kept pace with the Wildcats in the first half in what proved to be a high scoring affair. However in the second half, the Wildcat defense stiffened up and held the Dogs to one touchdown that came late in the fourth quarter that was just too little too late. The Dogs defense was not able to keep the high powered Kirbyville offense out of the endzone as they pulled away in the second half. In the end it was Kirbyville 51, Corrigan 28. The Bulldogs have a lot of pride and a strong fighting spirit. They played great football all year and pounded most of their opponents all year long. Congratulations to the Corrigan Bulldogs for making it to the playoffs.
