Palmer squeaks by Boyd

By Messenger Staff | Published Saturday, September 7, 2013

The Palmer Bulldogs skirted the Boyd Yellowjackets in double overtime Friday, 21-20.

Boyd opened things up with a touchdown by Fino Cardona, but Palmer answered back a couple of minutes later with a touchdown by Ty Mitchell.

In the second quarter, the Bulldogs grabbed the lead with Ty Mitchell completing a 15-yard pass to Jake Anglin in the last 25 seconds of the half.

Both teams wreslted back-and-forth through the third and most of the fourth. It wasn’t until the final two minutes that Boyd’s Clay Barnett was able to run in the tying touchdown.

Palmer was unable to break the 14-14 stalemate and was forced into overtime. Neither team could score in the first overtime, so they went into a second round of overtime.

The Bulldogs drew first blood with a touchdown and an extra point kick. The Yellowjackets fought back and were able to secure their last touchdown, but a failed point after attempt sank Boyd’s hopes of tieing the game again and seeing another overtime period.

Boyd’s Cardona led the night in rushing yards with 176 and Dalton Stidham led the Yellowjackets in receiving with 57 yards. Clay Barnett completed eight passes for 14 yards.
