Hitchcock took command of the game Friday on the road against Palacios early and never looked back as the Bulldogs cruised to a 47-14 victory over the Sharks.

The first half was undoubtedly dominated by the Bulldogs as Hitchcock led 22-0 at the end of the second quarter.

The Bulldogs started their scoring ways with a 75-yard touchdown run by freshman quarterback Christian Dorsey. The momentum transferred to the Hitchcock defense as the Bulldogs recovered a first-down fumble by the Sharks.

Senior running back Deonza McCardell kept the ‘Dawgs rolling with a 40-yard touchdown run. The Sharks were denied once again on offense as Tyger Turner stripped the ball and had a 59-yard return. The drive was capped off by a 5-yard rushing score by freshman Devin Preston.

The Sharks finally were able to piece together a scoring drive, totaling the score at 22-7. Despite the Polacios touchdown, Hitchcock’s offense didn’t skip a beat as Christian Dorsey connected with Davin Preston for a 25 yard pass for a touchdown.

The Bulldog defense bounced back, forcing a turnover to up a 40-yard touchdown run by Turner. The game continued to go in Hitchcock’s favor as the Bulldogs recovered an onside kick that lead to a Davin Preston 40-yard run to make the score 47-7.

Hitchcock finishes the season with an overall record of 7-3 and a district record of 3-2. The Bulldogs will face Goliad in the bi-district round in the playoffs next Friday. The site and time are to be determined.
