After notching their first win of the season against Pasadena Memorial, the Summer Creek Bulldogs returned home to face off with a tough Dobie Longhorns team in their homecoming game.
Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, after a late rally by Dobie, it did not turn out to be a victorious homecoming. The Longhorns scored 15 points in the last 88 seconds of the game, rallying for a 36-23 win.
Early on, Dobie made a major statement against the Bulldogs, jumping out to a quick lead. They took the opening possession 64 yards in 11 plays for a 7-0 lead.
Then, on the first Summer Creek possession, Amar Lewis of Dobie picked up a Bulldog fumble and rumbled 31 yards for a score to make it 14-0.
The Bulldogs then rallied, though, to take the lead going into intermission. Two touchdown runs by Torrie Curry and a field goal put the Bulldogs up 16-14 at halftime.
In the third quarter, the Bulldogs padded their lead with a seven-play drive which was capped by a Bryan Bush 16-yard touchdown run. It put the Bulldogs up 23-14.
But Dobie answered on their very next drive, which ended with a 28-yard Dontavion Crosby touchdown run, making the score 23-21 and setting up the game’s frantic last few minutes.
With time running out, Dobie got the ball in Summer Creek territory and needed just five plays to score; it was a 39-yard touchdown run by Crosby and with a two-point conversion, Dobie went up 29-23 with 1:28 left.
On their next possession, Summer Creek got the ball as far as the Dobie 49, but Giambi Boyd of the Longhorns came up with an interception and ran it back 50 yards for a pick six to put the game away.
The loss drops Summer Creek to 1-3. The Bulldogs have the week off in which they can regroup and reflect.
