The Hooker Bulldogs took their young football team on the long road trip to Hollis and found out first hand why they are a ranked team, losing 52-0.
“We did some good things and some bad things,” Bulldogs coach Jacob Kreamer said. “We’ve got a lot of young guys out there still learning how to play.”
Defensively, Hollis shutdown the Bulldogs running game, forcing them to rely on their sophomore quarterback.
Offensively Hollis had the total package, hitting on big plays, and grinding out long scoring drives.
“Their depth on some of those long drives that wore us out,” Kreamer said.
But Kreamer was still optimistic about his team.
“We had some guys that played well,” Kreamer said. “We threw the ball ok, and our guys played hard the whole game.”
Hooker (0-2) was scheduled to play San Jacinto, Texas Friday, but had to be cancelled because of a mix-up in the schedule that left San Jacinto with two games on the same night. It was also scheduled to be the Bulldogs homecoming.
Instead Hooker will get ready for their first district game of the season, Sept. 27 at Turpin.
