Chico dominated the field with a withering passing game. Quarterback Jericoe McGuire threw for 279 yards – a big improvement over the 90 he threw in the Dragon’s opening bout against Frost.

Chico’s defense also scored big, shutting out Wortham. Hagen Davis returned an interception 87 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter.

By night’s end, Chico had 389 total yards, up from 127 the week before. The Dragons continue to struggle with extra-point kicks, however, putting only three of six between the posts.

The Bulldogs got behind early as McGuire completed two touchdown passes in the first quarter, one to Matt Carter and the other to Jastin McBee.

Early in the second quarter, McGuire hit Carter for another touchdown, and Carter brought a another McGuire pass again in the third.

Chico’s last touchdown came midway through the fourth as Stephen Whatley went three yards to the goal line.
