After the kickoff, the Blue Devils were at the 19 when the pass glanced off the receiver’s hands and into the arms of defensive back Jadden Pankey to give the Bulldogs possession at the Blue Devil 23 yard line. On second play of the drive Jadden Pankey took the ball and skirted up the middle for the Bulldog’s second touchdown of the game. Cade Cook converted the 2 point conversion to put the score at 14-0. After knocking down kickoff returner at the Blue Devil 23 yard line, the Bulldog defense forced a short punt that gave the Bulldogs the ball at the Harriman 40 yard line.
