J.P. Hochstein ’14 – Sports
On Friday, the 7-2 Dragons from Lake Orion hosted the Bulldogs in the pre-district playoff game. The Bulldogs were quick to strike with a first quarter 26 yard field goal courtesy of Andrew Behring (11). Lake Orion started the second quarter off with a touchdown, putting them in the lead, 7-3. In the final seconds of the first half, Paul Hurley (10) connected with Mitchell Pacitti (12) with a 4 yard pass.
The Dragons came back in the 3rd quarter, going up 14-10 with a touchdown. The Bulldogs dominated the fourth quarter, scoring two touchdowns and finishing the game off with a 3 minute drive going the length of the field, capped off by a Hurley to Blake Williams (12) touchdown pass. Lake Orion got the ball back with less than a minute remaining, but fumbling on the first play of the drive cost the Dragons their season.
The Bulldogs celebrated their first victory since the 1970s against their long time playoff rival, Lake Orion.
