Turnovers doom Bulldogs in 31-20 loss

September 28, 2007

LOUISBURG -- Second half fumbles doomed the Bulldogs as their rally fell short here tonight, losing 31-20 to the Wildcats.

The Bulldogs trailed 21-14 at halftime, but fumbled on their first three possessions of the second half. Louisburg scored a touchdown to take 31-14 lead before Baldwin scored late and couldn't convert an onside kick.

The turnovers only resulted in three Louisburg points, but the Bulldogs lost all of their momentum that was gained late in the second quarter.

Despite facing 21-point deficit, Baldwin rallied late in the first half. Drew Berg scored on a quarterback sneak before throwing a touchdown pass to Brandon Tommer.

Louisburg began the game by scoring on three of its first four possessions Friday. The Wildcats threw a 28-yard pass, 59-yard pass and carried a 30-yard run for touchdowns.

Next week the Bulldogs (3-2) host Osawatomie for their homecoming and Louisburg (5-0) travels to Spring Hill.
