e {I} 10 The Lovell Chronicle October 3, 2019 Bulldogs edge Lyman for first conference win ‘ BY DAVID PECK For the rebuilding Lovell Bulldogs, part of the process is learning to win again, and they took a big step in that direction Friday night with a 14—12 homecoming victory over the Lyman Eagles. . “They missed some assignments and some- times lacked discipline, but they are gritty,” coach Nicc Crosby said. “It was a game where, instead of find— ing a way to lose, though it wasn’t pretty, they found a way to win.” The two teams were pretty evenly matched, and in the end, the abil— ity to kick a PAT and pre- vent a two-point conver- sion made the difference for the Bulldogs. “Our defense and spe- cial teams, with one ex- ception, did a great ’0b of he ping us et goo field position, an a we were able to take advantage of it,” Crosby said. “we certainly left some points out there we need to learnto put on the board.” Crosby said one of the Lyman coaches had coached with Crosby at Star Valley and knew the Lovell offense, so the Ea- le changed what they ad been doing in the first three games to- stop the Lovell sweeps. . “They ran a totally dif- ferent scheme against us than they’ve been run— ning all year in how they used their cornerbacks to knife in and take away our sweep game,” he said. “They had their corners flying up there to get pen- etration and help keep us from getting to the edge. They were running a 5-3, but their defense was more like a 4-4 and they pressed their corners up in certain formations and have them knife in.” Lyman put points on the scoreboard first, thou h Lovell ‘ actually struc pay dirt first on a 46-yard run by CJ Lindsay that was called back on an illegal-block—to-the—back penalty. “The frustrating thing, from my perspec— tive, is that we scored the touchown and had all the momentum in the world, DAVID PECK Lovell quarterback Cason James turns up field for some yardage during the Bulldogs’ 14-12 homecoming win over Lyman Friday at KPR Memorial Stadium. The Bulldogs travel to Big Piney Friday to face the Punchers at 2 p.m. and (the penalty) took the wind out of our sails,” Cros- by said. “The kids were so excited.” After the Lovell punt, the Eagles drove 91 yards in nine plays with Preston Brewer dashing for 32 yards on a run and quarterback Carter Smith completing passes of six and 23 yards before going over the top to a wide open Blake Palm- er for a 23-yard touchdown pass. The Bulldogs stuffed the two—point conversion, leaving Lyman on top 6-0 with 4:13 remaining in the first quarter. It would be the only long drive of the game for Lyman as the Bulldogs stiffened on defense. “We took some bad angles and didn’t tack- le well (on the long run), and the touchdown was a busted coverage,” Crosby said. “Once we fixed some things it was tough sled- ding for them.” The Bulldogs drove to the Lyman 1~yard line in the second quarter before giv- oss gammy «11 1 ing the ball up on downs, leaving Lyman deep in their own end of the field, then swarmed in to block the ensuing punt with ju— nior Aaron Jones getting his hand on the ball. Given the ball at the Ly— man 2, the Bulldogs scored in one play as Hunter Har— ris powered up the middle for the score. Aden Mayes booted the PAT, and Lovell led 7-6 with 5:49 left in the first half. The Lovell defense pushed the Eagles back— wards on the ensuing pos- session, but the Bulldogs fumbled a punt return, al— lowing Lyman to retain possession of the ball. The Eagles drove to the Lovell 27, but on‘third‘an’d riin’e a pass to Palmer ‘near the goal line was broken up in the nick of time by Mayes from his safet position.

Although a Cason James pass was tipped and intercepted on Lovell’s first offensive play of the second half, the Bulldogs gradually gained a field position ad— vantage.

Lindsay burst for 19 yards to the Lyman 13, but the Bulldogs eventually gave the ball over on downs at the 5.

Lovell couldn’t move and had to punt, but Mayes shanked the kick and it carried just two yards. In busi- ness at the Lovell 32, Ly— man scored in seven plays, with Lamoreaux slipping tackles from three yards out to reach the end zone. Forced to go for two, Ly- man passed to the ri ht, but the aerial was bro en up by Bishop Trainor and others, leaving the Ea%le two points down with 1: 4 to play. , '. ' Bishop also snared the anticipated ’ onsid'e“ kick, preserving the win for the Bulldogs. . “That’s where it’s nice to have a kicker (for PATs, Mayes),” Crosby said. “They had to convert two- point conversions, and that Was the difference in the game. We kicked two ex- tra points, and they didn’t some: am; ‘ Wow-tees ’ .S’vmmelfitaétiflf convert two two—point conversions.” “Bishop came in and played well. He was in good position.” Lovell out-rushed Ly- man 148—104, but the Ea- gles won the air battle 87— 16. Lindsay carried the ball 17 times for 91 yards. James added 37 yards on 12 car- ries, Harris 17 yards on sev- en attempts, and Nichols 3 yards on one carry. Lam- oreaux led Lyman with 86 yards on 21 carries. Smith completed sev— en of 13 passes for Lyman for 87 yards with Palm- er catching five passes for 75 yards. James complet- ed five of eight passes for 16 yards as Thomas Hinck— ley caught two passes for 20 yards. The win improved the Bulldogs to 3-1 on the sea- son and evened their con— ference record at 1—1. Ly- man fell to 2—2, 2—1 in the 2A West. TRIP TO BIG PINEY The Bulldogs will take to the road early Friday morning to journey to Big Piney to face the Punch— ers, who, like Lyman, are 3-1 overall and 2—1 in the conference after beating 1A Shoshoni 47—0, falling to Mountain View 52-6 and beating Greybull 27—14 and Kemmerer 47-7. “The three of us (Lovell, Lyman and Big Piney) are pretty even,” Crosby said. “I feel if we can find a way to clean stuff up we can get Big Piney, but I also think they can exploit us if we don’t do the right stuff.” Crosby said the Punchers employ a wide open spread offense that sees rangy quarterback Kaden Raza throw the ball frequently. “He’s fairly elusive, so our pressure needs to fo- cus on containing and staying in rushing lanes,” Crosby said. “He’s a big, powerful guy like Cason.” Crosby said theaBu'lle dogs will have to leave at 5:30 a.m. for the 2 p.m. kickoff in Big Piney. “We’ve got to get off the bus and get to work,” he said. “They’re a' good squad and have several athletes in their spread system that can hurt you. We’ve gOt to be assignment sound.” ‘ ‘ caveat .V , Permit, 9:31} a 'Caiiege flat) ,‘mmonaa-reméssee 'SWDAZPGCI’ *3 i' V“ pal-teas? .
