Bulldogs lose sectional opener against Indian Creek 17-14


The Braves took a 14-0 lead on a 14-yard touchdown run by Smith with 6:59 to play in the half.

The Bulldogs bounced back with a 15-yard touchdown pass from Schuck to Ben Wilson with 1:20 to play in the first half.

The first half ended with the Braves in front 14-7.

The Braves extended their lead to 17-7 on a 25-yard field goal with less than a minute to play in the third quarter.

The Bulldogs later countered with their second touchdown of the game. A pair of catches by Ben Wilson set the stage. Schuck would later find Boston Gowan on a pass from four yards out. Heil’s extra point made it 17-14.

The Bulldogs stepped up on defense and forced the Braves to punt in their own territory. The punt appeared to ricochet off an offensive lineman and into the hands of BHS sophomore Seth Williamson. Williamson was brought down at the 30 yard line.

Unable to get much going offensively, Heppner sent Heil and the field goal unit out for a 42-yard attempt to tie the game. Heil had enough distance, but the ball was slightly off the mark.

“I had no doubt he could make it,” Heppner commented. “I would make the same decision again if I had to … it was just a little wide.”

The Braves were able to burn time off the clock and move the ball down the field.

Batesville managed one more offensive possession with little success. Pinned back at the 25 yard line with no timeouts, the Bulldogs failed to meet the 10 yard requirement for a first down and turned the ball back over on downs.  Indian Creek was able to run out the clock.

“We knew Indian Creek had a good team and they would come in here prepared,” Heppner said. “We had our chances, but just did not capitalize when we needed to most.

The Bulldogs finished the season with a mark of 9-1 … not bad for a group of seniors that went 0-9 as freshmen.

“I just cannot say enough about this group,” Heppner said. “Great kids with a great work ethic and attitude …”
