Devildogs Fall in OT to Sabres

(8/22/2014 / TRHS Webmaster)

TRHSThe Devildogs opened their 2014 season hosting the Sabres from Southside Christian. On the opening kickoff Andrew Russell recovered the ball on the Sabres' 14 yard line. The Devildogs were unable to take advantage, however, and a pair of holding penalties backed them up. A long pass on fourth down came up a half yard short and Southside Christian took over at the five.

Brandon Walker pulled in a pass in the second period and rolled over a defender and kept his balance to score the first touchdown of the year with 9:43 left in the second quarter. A few minutes later Southside Christian scored on fourth and three from the seven to tie the score on a pass in the end zone that was almost intercepted. Late in the half, Xavier Terry pulled in a short pass and scored from eight yards out. On the next Sabre possession Holland Echols intercepted a Sabre pass and returned it to the nine. The Devildogs were unable to score on a fourth down pass from the two as the first half ended.

The Devildogs got the ball first in the second half and put together their best drive of the night ending in a touchdown pass to Brandon Walker with 8:32 left in the third. In the final quarter the Devildogs had a touchdown called back due to a penalty. The Sabres were able to put together a drive and cut the Devildog lead to 21-14 scoring on a pass on fourth and six with 4:22 left in the game. They would tie the game with 1:10 left in the game. The Devildogs were forced to punt on their next possession and the Sabres ran out the clock to force overtime.

Southside Christian opened the overtime scoring a touchdown. Their extra point kick was good but was called back due to a penalty. Their second attempt sailed wide giving them a 27-21 lead. On the Devildogs' first play in overtime Terry took the handoff and ran around the end for an apparent touchdown. A flag on the play for holding took away the touchdown and backed the Devildogs up. On fourth and goal from the four the Sabre defense stopped Terry inside the two giving them the win in overtime.

The Devildogs will travel to Landrum next Friday and then be off a week before hosting Powdersville on September 12th. The JV team will open their season hosting Landrum next Thursday.
