Garrison Bulldogs took on the Harleton Wildcats in their season finale
Harleton, TX--Tonight the Garrison Bulldogs took on the Harleton Wildcats in their season finale holding a bye in the final week of the season and having already secured the #1 seed in the UIL playoffs. At stake: the outright district title and an undefeated district record in one of the toughest 2A districts in the state. In the 1st quarter Harleton ate up all but 2:49 picking up four 1st downs with 2 coming on 4th downs before attempting a 41 yard FG that the Bulldogs blocked. Garrison then marched down the field and would score on three successive touches. The first a Drew Wise to Jakadric Watts 30 yard pass to cap the first drive. After forcing a punt on the next Harleton possession the other twin Jakedric Watts went 70 yards with it to the promised land after getting pinned to the sideline and breaking out. Following the next Harleton punt Drew Wise swung a backwards pass to Jakadric Watts who in turn found a wide open Roderick Johnson Jr. resulting in a 71 yard score. After an errant punt snap at Harleton's 24 handed the ball back to the Dogs Sabastion Porter tallied all those yards and posted his 30th TD of the season on an 8 yard run. Andy Marquez was 3 of 4 on PAT's and Garrison held a 27-0 lead at the half. In the 3rd Garrison intercepted a pass in the end zone and the Dogs went 90 yards, running courtesy of Porter and a Drew Wise 47 yard pass to Landon Lunsford setting up another Porter 1 yd walk in to put the Dogs up 34-0. The Dogs surrendered a lone score at 7:44 in the 4th on a pass from Garrett Handlin to Cooper Ward. The PAT failed. Garrison put in their reserves after that and held off the Wildcats from there. Garrison wins the district 11 2A division 1 crown 34-6.
