Reed leads Bulldogs past Choctaw

Published: Saturday, October 13, 2012 at 01:05 AM.

With the Bulldogs set to receive the ball first in the second half, Choctaw didn’t take its foot off the gas. The Indians marched 35 yards to the Bulldogs’ 32-yard line, setting the stage for Dominique Jor-dan. Giving his team the momentum, the soccer player split the uprights to stake the Indians to a 17-14 lead headed into the locker rooms.

“I told the kids we just have to quite beating our-selves and our time would com,” Pettis said. “I said, ‘If we take care of the football, we will win this ballgame.’ ”

His words proved pro-phetic as the Bulldogs didn’t commit a single second-half turnover.

Meanwhile, Reed started the half with a 76-yard touchdown run and, following a Hicks 46-yard touchdown carry, provided the game winner with a 7-yard score in the fourth. The Bulldogs’ defense, which limited Garrison Floyd to just 9 for 18 pass-ing for 37 yards and held the Indians to under 200 yards of offense, then held up its end of the bargain, closing out a win that Pettis called a “momentum builder.”
