The Alvord Bulldogs faced a 3-0 Bowie team on the road Friday, and absorbed a tough loss by a score of 55-0.

There’s not much more to say about this one, as the injury-riddled Alvord team fell behind 20-0 by halftime and then watched as their hosts scored three more touchdowns in the third quarter and two more in the fourth.

The Jackrabbits used a powerful running game to pound out seven touchdowns on the ground – the longest a 13-yarder. The others came from two, five, two, one, two and three yards out, as Bowie rushed 46 times for 251 yards.

Alvord’s Joe Randall led the Bulldogs’ rushing attack as he collected 54 yards on 13 carries.

Casen Baker threw for 36 yards on 6-of-14 passing, with two picked off.

Not just Jackrabbit runners, but a flurry of flags victimized the visitors as well. Alvord was penalized 19 times for 128 yards while Bowie drew just four flags for 30 yards.

The loss drops Alvord to 1-3 on the season as they prepare to host Gunter next week for Homecoming.
