COLMESNEIL – It was Thursday night, and the weather was right. There was no reason to relocate the schedule game, like the week prior, and with those factors in play, the Colmesneil Bulldogs were ready to give a hometown crowd a show on Taylor Field.
The ‘Dogs hosted the Houston-area school KIPP East End and hammered them in a 50-6 win for Coach Cody Day’s crew.
An offensive onslaught from Colmesneil put up an insurmountable 42-6 lead by the half, and going into the second half of the game, the ‘Dogs cruised to their victory.
Day said he is proud of the ‘Dogs’ growth through the team’s first two games.
Offensively, the ‘Dogs were led on Thursday by Jeremi Shamblin and Reed Best, who picked up 103 and 94 yards, respectively, rushing.
The 2-0 Bulldogs will take on the Cayuga Wildcats this Friday at home, with a 7 p.m. kickoff.
“Cayuga presents a big challenge, particularly up front, where their offensive line averages about 260 lbs. per kid,” Day said.
Cayuga is one of the new schools in the most recently minted UIL alignment for District 2A Region III.
Kickoff for Friday’s game is at 7 p.m. Cayuga is coming off of a loss to Mildred and sitting 1-1 in week three of high school football.
