Addison Bulldogs tank Falkville on the road
By Jesse Lamar
Sports Reporter
FALKVILLE  -  The Addison Bulldogs picked up their first region win with a 42-7 victory over Falkville High School. The Bulldogs came into the game after suffering a shut out loss to Tanner High School, but that seemed a thing of the past as Addison took care of business.
Neither team managed to get on the board in the opening quarter of the ballgame. Late in the first, Addison senior quarterback John Everett was put out of the game with a knee injury which made backup quarterback Hunter Ray step up to fill the void.
The Blue Devils were the first team to get on the board midway through the second on a 76-yard punt return. The extra-point attempt sailed through the uprights to give them a 7-0 lead with 4:27 left in the first half.
Addison answered back with a score of their own four plays later on a 61-yard drive. Kirk punched in the touchdown from six-yards out. The Bulldogs tried for a two-point conversion, but were unsuccessful leaving Falkville with a 7-6 lead.
Addison’s defense was also on point as they held the Blue Devils to a three-and-out drive. On fourth down, the Bulldogs brought everything but the kitchen sink on an attempt to block a punt. The attempt was a success as the Falkville punter dropped the ball in the endzone which allowed Levi Hammack to scoop-and-score, giving Addison the lead. Another two-point conversion, this time successful, gave Addison a 14-7 lead heading into halftime.
In the third quarter, Kirk punched in the Bulldog’s third score of the ballgame from one-yard out to give Addison a 22-7 lead after a successful two-point conversion. The next touchdown of the game came from Ben Robinson in the third quarter on a two-yard barrel for the end zone.
Later in the third, the Bulldogs picked up another score when Ray hit Kirk for a 37-yard touchdown reception. Heading into the final quarter of the ballgame, Addison held a 36-7 lead. Robinson added the final score of the ballgame with a 55-yard foot race to the endzone.
Addison, now 2-2, will travel to Hanceville this Friday to continue in their region play.
