Creative Bulls fall short against Godley

Published Saturday, November 18, 2017
By Richard Greene

Playing against their former quarterback, the Bridgeport Bulls put together a creative game plan Friday night to utilize the talents of their current signal caller. The Bulls lined sophomore Jadon Maddux up in a variety of sets in the backfield, creating opportunities for big plays on which he delivered. Maddux ran for a score, threw for another and set up a third touchdown with a halfback pass to help the Bulls to a three-point lead with the ball with under seven minutes left. Trying to nurse home the lead, Michael Cole lunged for a first down just across midfield. When he hit the ground, the ball popped loose. Godley’s Sebastian Rivera scooped up the ball and rumbled 60 yards for the game-winning touchdown in the Wildcats’ 32-28 win over Bridgeport in the 4A Division I bi-district game at Aledo’s Bearcat Stadium.
