The Trion Bulldogs were defeated last night in a day late game played against the Armuchee Indians. The final score was 28-7.
Davante Hudson led Armuchee in rushing with 89 yards on 11 carries including a 69-yard touchdown run to break open a two-score lead early in the fourth quarter.
Trion’s Ryan Wilson led the Bulldog offense with 90 yards on 14 carries and a touchdown. Glenn Emery added 76 yards in the run-oriented attack that only saw three passes completed for 37 yards.
Hudson’s touchdown came on the first play after Trion was stopped on a fourth down try inside Armuchee territory. Bulldog quarterback Hayden Tucker was sacked by Indians linebacker Jason Vasser to end the Bulldog scoring threat.
Trey Pledger scored later in the fourth to give the Indians the three-touchdown lead that would stand to be the final.
The two teams played to a 7-7 tie at halftime with Trion scoring on a three-yard plunge by Ryan Wilson in the first quarter, and Armuchee getting into the endzone on a well-thrown fade route by quarterback T.C. Boyd to Marcel Hudson.
Trion won the turnover battle in the game recovering two fumbles and picking off a pass on trick play where Armuchee’s Hudson took the handoff and looked downfield for a receiver.
Armuchee took the lead on their second possession of the second half when Blake Poole scampered 51 yards down the sideline to make it 14-7.
One of the keys in the game was Trion’s penalties which accounted for 119 yards and included five personal fouls.
Trion had an opportunity to score early in the game after Lamar Lashley got in to block an Armuchee punt attempt by Tommy Harris in the first quarter, but the Bulldogs were stopped on downs in Armuchee territory.
