Bulldogs run mark to 6-0 with win over host Tigers

BATESVILLE —

The wins keep stacking up for the Batesville High School football team.

What was expected to be a key divisional match-up inside the Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference did not really turn out to as close as expected.

And it was good news for the Bulldogs.

Batesville traveled to Lawrenceburg Friday night and left with a convincing 34-6 over the Tigers.

The BHS defense was again a key to the victory.

The Bulldogs intercepted Tiger quarterback Sam Fette four times, which one was returned for a touchdown.

Ben Wilson picked Fette twice and tipped another ball that was chased down by teammate Connor Dickey.Wilson's second interception came in the early in the fourth quarter and was returned 55 yards for a touchdown. Colin Brown also intercepted a Fette pass deep in Bulldogs territory to end a possible scoring opportunity.

Constant pressure early in the game by Seth Williamson, Cody Reer and Brown took the Tigers out of their up-tempo style.

Brown finished the night with a team-high eight solo tackles and six assists. Reer was close behind with seven solo and five assists, while Dickey tallied five solo and five assists.

Despite a couple turnovers in Lawreceburg territory, including one on the goal line, The Bulldogs were able to move the ball on the ground with relative ease.

After a scoreless first quarter, placekicker Peter Heil put the Bulldogs on the scoreboard with a 29-yard field goal with 7:09 to play in the half.

The Bulldogs came up with a couple stops on defense and then BHS senior Boston Gowan came up with one of the biggest plays of the night.

The Bulldogs were pinned back at the 14 yard line. Gowan took the ball from quarterback Connor Schuck, weaved his way through traffic and made his way to the end zone 86 yards later. The Tigers had chances to bring the BHS running back down, but failed to execute.
