Bulldogs tackle top-ranked Snow

(Continued)

MILLEDGEVILLE —

Going back and forth during the first half, the Bulldogs broke the game wide open late in the game scoring 21 points in the second half.

“I think our conditioning played a big role. It was a hot and humid day,” Williams said. “I felt like we were in better shape and we had better strength in the fourth quarter, and we were able to take advantage of that.”

Jovon Robinson certainly displayed a high level of fitness on Saturday, leading GMC offensively with 19 carries on the ground for 313 yards and 2 touchdowns.

“Jovon’s off to a great start. He’s our red zone tailback—he’s a punishing runner,” Williams said. “He’s that guy that is truly considered a physical running back. We fully expect him to bee a good running back for us.”

The Bulldog’s quarterback Patrick Thomas remained consistent against the Badgers going 7-21 through the air with 120 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception.

Thomas connected with Ty Flournoy-Smith on two occasions for 66 yards and both touchdowns.

“We’re just real proud of our guys, with the way they’ve gone out to start the year,” Williams said.

GMC will look to continue their momentum on Saturday, Sep. 7 at home on Davenport Field against the Atlanta Sports Academy at 1 p.m.
