Still suffering from the injuries last week against Eastland, Millsap started Friday’s game with a partial roster against a struggling Jacksboro team. Despite the numbers, Jacksboro pulled ahead early in the game and continued to dominate against the Bulldogs, coming away with a 36-14 win.
With a missed field goal and a missed 2-point conversion, Jacksboro decided to try again for their third extra point attempt, prevailing with 6:16 left in the second quarter. The Bulldogs were not able to hold Jacksboro off in the red zone.
The Bulldogs’ Dylan Dahlhauser scored with a 60-yard run, putting Millsap on the board during the first half. Both teams had multiple turn overs on downs and went in to halftime with Jacksboro on top, 20-6.
Refreshed and “fired up” from halftime, Millsap’s defense forced several turnovers, allowing the Bulldog offense to score early in the third quarter. Playing catch up, the Bulldogs gave the Tigers a taste of their own 2-point conversion, carried in by Morgen DePriest bringing the score to 20-14 Jacksboro.
Continuing their efforts to put numbers on the board, Jacksboro successfully completed its 2-point attempts but failed at their onside kicks but still came away with their first win of the season.
Millsap (3-2, 0-2) will head to Wichita Falls Friday to take on City View at 7:30 p.m. The Bulldogs will try to build momentum as they head into Loboes country to face currently undefeated Cisco on Oct. 17.
