Mistakes led to the Thomson Bulldogs having a rough night Friday night it a scrimmage with the Grovetown Warriors.
The Dogs’ varsity was shut out 21-0 in the first half. Thomson’s only points on the night came on a fourth quarter touchdown by the 9th grade Bulldogs. The JV battled to a 0-0 tie in the third quarter.
Cortavious Catchings scored on a 12-yard run, and the extra point was scored by Skylar Lewis.
Thomson head coach Rob Ridings said THS was plagued by miscues in the first half.
“We made five crucial mistakes, Riding said of the game played on a soggy field in Grovetown.
“We had two interceptions – one for a touchdown. We had two fumbles – one for a scoop-and-score. We had a bad punt that they returned 25 yards to inside out 20. That’s how they got all their points.”
Ridings also said the Bulldogs were not able to complete drives.
“I really believe had we scored the first time and not thrown the interception, the outcome would have probably been a little different,” he said.
The coach said the Bulldogs will work hard this week to correct issues as they prepare for the season opener at Laney Friday night.
“Thank goodness that was a scrimmage game,” Ridings said.
