Run game leads Bulldogs to fourth win

MILLEDGEVILLE — Continuing to find ways to win ball games, Georgia Military College pulled off its fourth win of the season Sunday with a 22-15 victory over 10th ranked ASA College of Brooklyn on the road.

The Bulldogs’ win was the second this season against a top-10 ranked opponent.

“We’ve beaten two top-10 teams, and starting 4-0, you can’t ask for any more than that,” Bert Williams, head coach, said.

While the matchup with the Avengers was the lowest scoring contest of the season for the Bulldogs, the rushing attack continued to pull through for the team on the road.

“We really probably played our least prosperous game, but we had a pretty good run game,” Williams said.

Jovon Robinson had yet another big game with 35 carries for 196 yards and two trips to the end zone against ASA College.

Complimenting Robinson’s efforts, Patrick Thomas went 10-25 through the air for 78 yards, connecting with Zireycus Leman on five occasions for 49 yards.

GMC finished the day with three turnovers, two fumbles and an interception.

“Our biggest issue was turning the ball over, and penalties,” Williams said. “A lot of the same things we’ve been having.”

Though, the Bulldogs have protected the football better in practice, Williams admits there appears to be a lack of focus late in ball games, something that will cost the team later in the year against tough opponents.

“The thing we’ve got to get our guys to understand is that’s when we’ve got to get the focus to ramp up,” he said. “It’s going to cost us. It darn near cost us this week.”

Defensively, the squad is rounding into form with local talent Donte Beckham leading the team with six tackles, along with Corey Neely and St. Pierre Anilus who snagged six tackles each of their own.
