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.”
