BATESVILLE, MS (WLBT) - The Brandon Bulldogs hit the road to Batesville to take on South Panola.
UPS maybe not what it was in years past, but always a big game when you're playing the Tigers.
Brandon on the doorstep and Dallas Smith plunges in from a yard out. 7 - 0 Bulldogs.
Fast forward, late first half, Brandon now leads 21 -7 as quarterback Will Rogers calls his own number.
The Bulldog defense adds to that lead just moments later. Richard O'Brien scoops up the South Panola fumble and the only thing between him and the end zone is air.
Brandon goes into the half leading 28 -7 and would end up with the win 42-21.
"Well I thought we were able to move the ball, you know, made some big plays. Some big throws over the top. I thought we ran the ball really well," said Brandon head coach Tyler Peterson. "Offensive line did a great job at controlling the line of scrimmage. Defensively gave up a big play right before the half. A couple penalties cost us, but other than that I thought we played sharp."
