Special teams spark Bulldogs

Sunday, October 18, 2009

SIKESTON -- Every week the Sikeston Bulldogs change up their game plan on special teams according to what team they're facing. On Friday evening against West Plains, they found the perfect scheme to take down a team that has never seen a loss to the Bulldogs.

The special teams unit came into effect three times in Friday's win, with two instances playing a significant role in the lopsided 44-6 Sikeston victory.

In the second quarter the Bulldogs' special teams recovered a deep kick inside the 5-yard line, setting up a score, then just over a minute later a blocked punt resulted in yet another touchdown.
