Bulldogs lose to Tigers 40-0

For a second week in a row, the Batesville High School football team was outplayed.

The Lawrenceburg Tigers spoiled homecoming night for the Bulldogs and left with a convincing 40-0 victory.

Nothing seemed to go right for the Bulldogs on offense, especially in the third quarter.

Coach Eric Heppner’s crew approached midfield a couple times in the first half, but it was not until the 5:41 mark in the fourth did the Bulldogs cross midfield.

“It was not the type of night we had hoped for,”  Heppner commented. “We still have a number of issues.

“The worst thing is we are taking steps backwards on offense ... we need to be more physical,” he added.

The Tigers did not have many problems offensively and part of that was due to good field position.

Lawrenceburg scored on their first series in the opening quarter. Jake Newman kicked a 47-yard field goal to put the Tigers on top 3-0 at the 4:55 mark.

One of the key moments in the game was a 71-yard pass play from quarterback Sam Fette to wide receiver Robert Jackson, which resulted in a touchdown on the first play of the second quarter. Newman added the extra point.

Unsuccessful on their next three plays, the Bulldogs were forced to punt. The Tigers took over on the 33 yard line and nine plays later settled for a 31-yard Newman field goal.

The first half ended 13-0 and the Bulldogs were still within a pair of scores.

As the rain poured down for portions of the third quarter, the Tigers rolled on and tallied 27 unanswered points to take a 40 point lead into the final quarter.

Offensively, the Bulldogs were led in rushing by Neal Nobbe with 32 yards on five carries, while Matthew Linkel finished with 11 touches for 30 yards.

Sophomore Connor Schuck completed 3-of-7 passes for 21 yards. The longest was a 10 yard pass play to Tom Chaffee.

The Bulldogs held Lawrenceburg standout Chad Banschbach to under 100 yards on the game. Banschbach carried the ball 21 times for 90 yards.

Lawrenceburg countered with 232 yards passing. Fette finished the night 13-of-17. Jackson caught four balls for a total of 104 yards.

The Tigers improved to 6-0 on the season, while the Bulldogs fall to 3-3. Batesville will be at home  next week when they host Greensburg.
