Win #1 in the Book

24 hours and 20 minutes after the kick off your Hickory Ridge Ragin' Bulls put win number 1 in the record book.

After Friday nights game was suspended due to lighting, the Hickory Ridge defense really came alive. As we left the Ridge on Friday night, there was a big question about how Hickory Ridge would stop a run attack that seemed to give Carson lots of momentum. Noble Ajakaiye and Nick Carano stood up and really showed what the Bulls are capable of doing. The defense stopped Carson on 3 downs. Once the Bulls offense went back to work, it was Brian Baltimore who looked fresh as ever. Brian's running partner, Cody Cothern ripped through the Cougar D. Baltimore scored a TD to really put the game out of reach. With the final few minutes counting down, the cougars got the ball back near their own 30 yard line. Behind on the score board 25-13, the cougars could never get anything going offensively. Facing a 4th and long the Bulls came up big with a sack.

Hickory Ridge came back with more ground game driving down inside the 10 as time expired.

Final Score Hickory Ridge 25, Carson Cougars 13.

Next week the Ragin' Bulls make the road trip to Marvin Ridge. One of the highlight games covered by WBT Channel 3.

Go Bulls!
