Bulldogs’ comeback falls short at Spring Hill
SPRING HILL — Baldwin High nearly made a fourth quarter comeback to win its first game of the season here Friday.
Unfortunately, a dropped pass in the end zone with six seconds left in the game ended that chance. The Bulldogs (0-3) fell to the Broncos (1-2) 34-26.
A Spring Hill interception return for a touchdown seemed to lock the game up early in the fourth quarter. The Broncos led 34-13 with 9:12 remaining after the score.
Then Baldwin drove 67 yards and scored a touchdown. BHS then recovered the onside kick on Spring Hill’s 40 yard line. Ten plays later, the Bulldogs scored another touchdown.
Spring Hill recovered the next onside kick, but fumbled on the ensuing run. Baldwin gained possession of the ball with 3:36 left, but was out of timeouts.
After three straight third down conversions, Baldwin was faced with a fourth and goal at the 3 yard line. Will Von Bargen’s pass bounced off Camdon Schwartz’ hands.
Baldwin will travel to De Soto next Friday for another Frontier League game.
