Jersey Shore Bulldogs
The district four playoffs began tonight with a battle between the Jersey Shore Bulldogs and the Columbia Montour Vo-Tech Rams. The Bulldogs were a force tonight with a three-headed attack that racked up 286 yards rushing with 5 total touchdowns in a 52-0 victory. The leader of the group was Josh Malicky as he had 108 yards for two touchdowns. Following was Dawson Sechrist with 95 yards and a touchdown. Lastly, Kyle Tomb had 83 yards and two touchdowns. Coach Tom Gravish said, ” We ran the ball early to set up key plays passing”. The first play of the game Bulldogs quarterback Tanner Lorson found receiver Koby Peacock for a quick 48-yard touchdown pass. The Bulldogs converted the two-point conversion to take an 8-0 lead. The following Ram drive ended up with a three and out and on fourth down the Bulldogs rush came through and blocked the punt. Coach Gravish said, ” we wanted to do things with special teams and might have a chance to block a punt, and we did”. This was one of the two blocked punts for the Bulldogs. Three plays later Kyle Tomb took the ball 5 yards into the end zone. The kick was good giving the Bulldogs a 15-0 lead with 8:41 left to go in the first quarter. The Rams continued to struggle offensively and ended up punting the ball away. They held the Bulldogs up until Tomb took the ball 30 yards down to the 4-yard line. The very next play Tomb finished the drive with a 4-yard touchdown. The PAT was no good making the score 21-0 with 5:30 to go in the first. The Rams offense found a spark on a fourth down fake punt when quarterback Cole Simpler found Mekhi Murdick for a 28-yard completion. However, the next three plays resulted in negative yards forcing a punt.
The second quarter started with a drive ending with a Josh Malicky touchdown. He took the ball from 2 yards out making the score 34-0. The PAT was good giving the Bulldogs a 35-0 lead with 10:13 to go in the second quarter. Again the Rams could not gain any yards and the Bulldogs got their second blocked punt of the night, giving the ball to the Bulldogs the ball on the 34-yard line. The very next play Dawson Sechrist took the ball 34 yards for a Bulldog touchdown. The kick was good making the score 35-0 with 7:55 to go in the second quarter. Bulldogs scored a 5-yard touchdown pass from Lorson to receiver Terrence Stetts with 3:47 left in the half. The pat was good making the game 42-0. And with 0:01 seconds left in the half kicker Cameron Griffen made an 11-yard field goal making the score 45-0 at the half. The Rams came out in the second half with what seemed to be an offensive groove. Although the offense found a spark it did not result in points. The only points that came in the second half was a huge 54-yard touchdown by Josh Malicky with 5:34 to go in the third quarter. The PAT was good giving the Bulldogs the 52-0 lead. The fourth quarter was two defenses going at it going back and forth with fumbles and punts. The final score tonight was 52-0 Bulldogs. This was a huge victory for the Bulldogs and coach Gravish said: ” I see we are getting better, we are getting better every day even our seniors are getting better.” Also to add he said ” Our goal always is to host a district playoff game and a district 4 championship. The Jersey Shore Bulldogs will face Selinsgrove in the next round of the playoffs. Selinsgrove defeated Midd-West 21-9 to advance into the next round.
Jersey Shore opens with a huge win of 52-0
