Bulldogs fall to Panthers
November 6, 2020
The Carter County Bulldogs ended their football season in the first round of the playoffs at Park City last Saturday. Bulldog miscues on offense cost them in the first half. Twice receivers ran in the Panthers' secondary open but passes didn't connect. They also had a false start inside the ten yard line that effectively ended what was perhaps their best drive of the game. The Bulldogs ended the half with possession of the football, failing to score from a goal-to-go situation.
Park City scored once in the first quarter on a Tucker Johnstone run. At the start of the second quarter, they scored on a 26 yard pass play as the Dog defense again struggled against the pass. The Panthers scored one more time in the second and took a 20-0 lead into the half.
Blue continued to find some success with their ground game in the second half, but never could put an entire drive together to find the end zone. Park City scored on a 41 yard run at the start of the third quarter and put the game away with a final scoring run from 1 yard out at the end of the third. The game ended 36-0 in favor of the Panthers.
For the second time in as many seasons, CCHS ended their season in the first round of the Montana Class C 8-Man Playoffs. Park City will move on to face Shelby in the quarterfinals. Scobey, Fairview and Westby/Grenora from the east all won their first round games and will play in the quarterfinals this weekend.
