The El Dorado Springs Bulldogs dominated both sides of the ball on Friday night at home to defeat the Slater Wildcats 76-0.

On the night the Bulldog defense only gave up one first down and a total of 7 yards, meanwhile the offense gained 482 yards on 38 plays from 12 different ball carriers. ElDo scored three touchdowns on their first four offensive plays of the night, with Trenton Hardie scoring on runs of 16 and 65 yards and Riley Boyd scoring on a 32-yard run.

The Bulldogs led 55-0 at halftime after one rushing touchdown from Dayton Austin, two rushing touchdowns from Ethan Dubois, one touchdown on a pass from Boyd to Shane Trowbridge and a defensive touchdown when Dubois caused a fumble and Austin was able to scoop and score.

In the second half the Bulldogs got touchdown runs from Keilan Jaques, Colton Collins and Jordan Deragowski.

Offensively, Hardie led the way statistically with 104 rushing yards on 4 carries while Boyd completed 5 of 6 passes for 51 yards on the night. Defensively Dubois led the way with 12 tackles, including a sack, two tackles for a loss and a forced fumble.

Coach Derek Scroggins said, “I thought our boys played hard tonight and we had some kids step up and show what they could do. Dagan McIntire played lights out as an offensive tackle and Trenton Hardie really broke out of his shell as a running back and displayed how explosive he can be despite only getting four carries. Defensively, I was impressed with the intensity our boys played with and loved how we tackled in bunches. I think this game gave us some confidence and we need to keep building on that.”

The Bulldogs next travel to Lexington to take on Wentworth Military Academy on Friday night.

The Bulldogs had a new weapon in the kicking game. Freshman CJ Sipes took over the kicking duties. A couple of on-side kicks were recovered by Slater, then, on later kick-offs, Sipes got to show off his power booting the ball into the end zone when Slater let it bounce, then Slater caught it at about the 10 yard line and was immediately tackled.

After a couple of unsuccessful point after kicks, Riley Boyd got on track and starting putting the point after through the uprights for the first time this year, adding a new weapon to the Bulldog arsenal. With the Bulldogs frequent TDs Friday night, he had plenty of opportunities for real game experience.

On defense, Ethan Dubois made six tackles and assisted on six racking up two TFL (tackle for loss), one sack and once forced fumble. Dayton Austin made four tackles, assisted on six, had 2.5 TFL and recovered a fumble. Bryson Rader assisted on five tackles, forced a fumble and recovered a fumble.
