DORA — The Oneonta Redskins ruined Dora High’s senior night at Horace-Roberts Field on Friday by cruising to a 28-0 victory. Dora mustered only 141 total yards of offense in the game to fall to 1-8 on the season and 1-6 in Class 4A, Region 5 play. The Bulldogs will miss the playoffs for the first time since 2001.

Oneonta cracked the scoreboard first Friday after Nolen Smith picked off a Kenny Carlton pass and returned it to the Bulldog 40-yard line.

Four plays later, quarterback Casey O’Toole hit Patrick McQueen from 11 yards out for the score.

Chance Payne’s extra point gave the Redskins a 7-0 lead.

Dora appeared to have something going late in the first quarter when Brennan Nash ripped off a 35-yard run to the Oneonta 40-yard line, but two plays later the Bulldogs fumbled and the Redskins took over and drove 61 yards for the score, capped off by a Brandon Evatt 42-yard run.

Oneonta’s final score of the half came when O’Toole dove in from a 1-yard out to make the halftime score 21-0.

The second half was mostly uneventful for both teams as they took turns exchanging possessions.

Oneonta did manage one final score as O’Toole, who finished the night with 139 yards passing, connected for his second touchdown pass, again to McQueen from 29 yards for the games final score.

Dora concludes its season next Thursday night as the Bulldogs travel to Pickens County.
