Bullpups beat Wildcats in shutout game

Live Oak — The Suwannee Bullpups beat the Baker County Wildcats on Oct. 25 by 24 points with nothing on the board for the Wildcats.

Paul Langford Stadium started filling up as both Bullpup and Wildcat fans came to cheer on their teams.

The ‘Pups won the toss and would be receiving the ball from the Wildcats. Jamari Wheeler, number 9, on the return brought the ball to the 34 yard line.  A couple of plays in, the ‘Pups fumbled, but recovered it. The ‘Pups didn’t get enough yards, so they decided to punt and the ball was down at the 38 yard line. Sam McMillon, number 4, made a good tackle. A couple of plays in and the first quarter ended with a 0-0 score.

The second quarter began with the Wildcats continuing to try and get down the field, but with a third and 19 to go for the first down, it looked grim. The next play the Wildcats went for a long pass which was almost intercepted, but was incomplete, so the ball was back to the ‘Pups. Shortly after Wheeler ran it into the end zone for a big ‘Pup touchdown. The ‘Pups went for the two-point conversion and brought the score to 8-0. 
‘Cats fumbled the ball and it’s recovered by the ‘Pups own SL McCall, # 51 and he ran it in for another ‘Pup touchdown. Once again, the ‘Pups went for the two-point conversion and made it over the line bringing the score to 16-0 with ‘Pups on top. The next few plays, the Wildcats made some yardage, but after a penalty for holding and a near fumble, the ball was back in ‘Pups possession. 
With just 17 seconds to go till the half, the Wildcats had the ball and passed only to have it intercepted by # 21, Joe Combs, at the 48 yard line. The interception was short-lived as the next play the Wildcats intercepted and the clock ran out for the first half with the score 16-0 Pups.

The third quarter score remained the same.

The fourth quarter, the Wildcats got the ball at the 29 yard line. The next play the Wildcats got a bad snap as they had been getting a great deal of the game. The Wildcats were able to get some yards, but not enough for a first down so they punted to the ‘Pups. Wheeler got the ball and made a stunning 45 yard run into the end zone for a touchdown. A two-point conversion gave the ‘Pups the lead at 24-0 and ends scoring for the night.

Thursday, Nov. 1, at 7 p.m., the ‘Pups will play their FSC conference game against the Madison County Cowboys at Paul Langford Stadium. Come on out to cheer for these young, up and coming, soon-to-be Bulldogs.
