Bulldogs pound Millsap, 31-7 in opener

By Messenger Staff | Published Saturday, August 31, 2013

Alvord junior Joe Randall came out of the blocks at full speed in the Bulldogs’ season opener, notching three first-quarter touchdowns to spark his team to a 31-7 win at Millsap.

Randall scored from nine yards out less than a minute into Friday’s game, then bulldozed in for an eight-yard TD with 4:15 left in the opening stanza. Less than two minutes later he broke into the open field for a 66-yard run.

Jonathan Musgrave tacked extra points on all three scores and the ‘Dogs led 21-0.

Millsap got on the board with a 14-yard run by Jordan Richardson as the first-quarter clock expired – but that would be the end of their scoring for the night.

Alvord cashed in again when Randall scored from two yards out late in the third quarter. Musgrave kicked the extra point and tacked on a 27-yard field goal midway through the fourth quarter to put the final margin on the board.

Alvord dominated the game on the stat sheet as well as the scoreboard, piling up 15 first downs to Millsap’s five and 356 yards to their hosts’ 112.

Randall outgained Millsap by himself, rushing for 164 yards on 19 carries enroute to four touchdowns.

But the Bulldogs boast an aerial attack as well. Quarterback Cassidy Patterson threw for 102 yards, completing six of 16 passes. Three of those went to Jaylon White for 52 yards.

Alvord will stay on the road next week as they travel to Ponder. Their home opener is Sept. 13 against Krum.
