Bulldogs enter game with very few flaws

Published 12:00 am Thursday, December 2, 2004

The UMS-Wright Bulldogs are on a mission.

And their mission is the same as the visiting Demopolis Tigers, who will travel to Mobile on Friday night in a battle to advance to the finals.

This season, the Bulldogs and the Tigers are undefeated.

So what makes UMS-Wright so good?

According to Andalusia head coach Tom Causey, the Bulldogs main strength is the coaching.

Andalusia, who lost to UMS-Wright 28-7, learned quickly that the Bulldogs could run the football.

But don’t take it from Andalusia alone.

Alma Bryant head coach Eric Collier, who led his team in with hopes of an upset, lost to the Bulldogs 17-0.

In last week’s semifinal game against Elmore County, the Bulldogs eased their way to victory, thanks in a large part to turnovers.

But according to coach Causey, if Demopolis can stop the Bulldogs run game, they should be able to advance to the finals.

A "really good game" is probably underestimating the type of athleticism and desire fans will witness on the football field Friday night in Mobile.

But come tomorrow night, speculation time is over and it will be time to play some football.
