DORA – Despite not having three starters due to injury, sixth-ranked
Dora earned a 41-25 victory Friday night.
Derrick Gardner rushed for 132 yards and a touchdown, while Chase Pierce
added 110 yards and a score on 11 carries to pace Dora’s ground
troops. The rushing attack finished with 313 yards on the ground, even
with two starters on the offensive line missing the game. Marquis Chapel
continued to be a main cog in the Bulldogs’ offense by running for
a score and catching a touchdown.
“Injuries put a damper on things and changes
what you can do,” Dora head coach Johnny Wright said. “Our
kids stepped up. Some that hadn’t played in a while had to step
in there and play, and they did a good job.”
