“We’re just making too much mistakes offensively,” is how Coach Tony Yeomans put it Monday.
On Friday night at Liberty County, the Bulldogs edged the Seahawks 6-0, avenging a blowout by Franklin County earlier in the season at Eastpoint.
“We can’t sustain a drive, we have a missed assignment, a fumble. We don’t have a playmaker, nobody steps up” said Yeomans. “It goes back to there’s no continuity. Every week we have to plug someone in there. We’re trying to teach kids new plays every week.”
Three keys starters have been sidelined for much of the year, with senior Ethan Riley now in rehab for a torn anterior cruciate ligament that ended his season. Lamarius Martin cracked a collarbone, and he should be back in several weeks, as will senior Alex Hardy, with a leg injury.
In the third quarter, quarterback Colin Amison connected with Javan Pride on a passing touchdown, but it was called back on a Seahawk penalty.
A long pass from the Liberty County quarterback was all the Bulldogs needed for the win.
“Are 11 people doing it right all the time?” said Yeomans. “We don’t have that right now.
“I put it on me. We’re going to keep fighting,” he said. “We didn’t have much offense at all.”
Yeomans noted that Pride had two interceptions on the defensive end.
Compounding the Seahawk problems are Duncan Whaley out with a hurt knee, and Devin Daniels with a tendon sprain.
“We’re going to change something around this week,” said Yeomans, as he eyes Friday’s home game against Sneads, probably the best team they’ll face all year.
“We’ll be trying new things,” he said. “We need somebody to step up and make plays.”
