Dogs drop conference game

Mick O'Connor goes up for a pass against Jordan last Friday night at Rowley Field.

The Bulldogs showed improvement on Friday night during their last home game of the season versus the Jordan Mustangs.

Early on, blue shut down Jordan's run game, forcing them to throw the ball for much of the game. There were only a few plays throughout that Jordan was able to run the ball when outside backers for the Bulldogs gave up contain on the outside.

Most of Jordan's long pass plays were right up the middle of the field, either on short dump offs to pass protectors or down the field in between Blue's deep zones.

CCHS ran the ball effectively most of the game with improved blocking. Most drives ended as a result of unforced Dawg errors; fumbled snaps, broken plays, or penalties, which resulted in them getting behind on the down and distance. A running offense can only be successful without these errors.

Late in the game Blue was down and had to air it out in an attempt to get back in the game. Sophomore Max Larson had several catches late. Senior Cameron Wolenetz, who was playing center at the time, got in on the action as well, catching an eight yard pass in the fourth quarter. The catch came on a bootleg pass. The bootleg worked several times near the end of the game since the CCHS run game had been chewing off yardage for most of the game. Freshman quarterback Jared Pardee continued to show improvement throwing the ball down field.

The Dawgs lost the contest, 18-46. They will head to Alexander, ND this Saturday for a non-conference game scheduled to kick off at 1:00 CT. Next Thursday, CCHS will play their final game in Medicine Lake.
