Football: Bowie passes by Bulls during scrimmage

By Richard Greene | Published Wednesday, August 20, 2014

The Bridgeport Bulls’ retooled defense showed it still needs some work Saturday in its first live action against Bowie.

The Bulls gave up four touchdowns over the session – three through the air.

The defense made just two stops in the scrimmage.

“The defense has a long ways to go,” said Bridgeport coach Danny Henson. “We’re trying to make decisions on a lot of kids on the bubble.”

Along with the three touchdown passes, Bowie scored once on a 10-yard run.

Offensively, Bridgeport found the end zone twice. Grayson Mathis caught a 9-yard touchdown pass from Trey Cook in the Bulls’ first possession, and Raby Hawkins hauled in a scoring toss from Cook from 1-yard out later in the session.

Cook completed 14 of his 23 attempts for 130 yards with one interception.

The Bulls had some success running inside against Bowie, getting a surge up front from their offensive line.

“We executed a lot of times well,” Henson said. “There are still parts where we are lacking. The line had no major mistakes. Grayson Mathis started picking it up and running better.”
