Coach Gravish commented on the early scoring plays, “We wanted to get out on the right foot. We didn’t allow them to score and the first seven were big and we had to follow up with another seven. We are in great shape and we played all 48 minutes of the game.”
The next Jersey Shore drive started deep in their own end as on a fourth and goal the defense was able to hold and force a turnover on downs. The Bulldogs were able to drive down the field and Miller nailed a 44-yard field goal attempt. Cayden Hess would be the next Bulldog to score. Brady Jordan found the Senior receiver in the corner of the endzone from 23 yards out. This pushed the Bulldogs lead to 24-0.

For Milton, this drops them to 5-2 on the year but they will look to bounce back next Friday as they take on Shamokin.
