Published 12:00 am Saturday, October 31, 2015
The size advantage was definitely in favor in the visiting Dora Bulldogs, but the Linden Patriots used their skill and speed advantage to come away with a 38-24 victory in their final season game.
With the win, Linden moves to 6-2 overall on the season while Dora will finish 0-10, winless for fifth time in the 90 year history of the football program.
Linden got on the bored early when Dequan Charleston broke free for a 17-yard touchdown with 10:18 on the first quarter clock. Isaiah Scott missed his extra point attempt, but the Patriots gained a 6-0 lead.
Charleston was not done in the first quarter and with 5:37 remaining he broke free for a 41-yard touchdown to push the lead to 12-0. Christopher Robinson fumbled the snap on the two-point try after the score.
