Bulldog Football Falls to Fliers at Home

The Baltic Bulldog football team hosted the Flandreau Fliers on Friday, September 8th.  The Fliers started to pull away in the second quarter and finished with a 34-20 victory.

Both defenses held in the opening quarter, and the score remained tied 0-0 after one quarter of play.  Flandreau got on the board first with a 17-yard touchdown pass with 9:58 in the half for a 7-0 lead.  Tate Feucht connected with Ben Erickson on a five-yard touchdown pass on the next Baltic drive.  A missed extra point kept Flandreau in front 7-6 with 8:04 to play in the second quarter.

The Fliers took almost seven minutes off the clock on their next drive and scored on a four-yard run with 1:23 to go.  Baltic fumbled on the ensuing kick-off return, and on the very next play, Flandreau executed a “hook and ladder” play for a 43-yard touchdown.  The Fliers led 20-6 with 1:05 left in the half.  The score remained 20-6 at halftime.

Flandreau added another score on a 14-yard touchdown pass with 3:42 to play in the third quarter to go ahead 27-6.  The Bulldogs cut into the lad moments later on an eight-yard touchdown run by Jackson Goehring.  The Fliers led 27-12 with 2:05 left in the third quarter.

The two defenses again held for nearly another quarter.  Flandreau put the game away on a 23-yard touchdown pass with 1:28 left in the game.  Feucht and Erickson connected again on a 19-yard touchdown pass with just :11 left in the game.  A two-point conversion made the final score 34-20.
