BOWIE —The Howe Bulldogs fell to the Bowie Jackrabbits on Friday Sept. 8 in the second game of the regular season. After losing to Gunter, 50-12, last week in the opening home game of the season, the Bulldogs unfortunatly didn’t have better luck on the road in week two as they traveled to Bowie High School for the loss, 37-14.
Andrew Griffin led Howe with 15 carries for 80 yards, but the Bulldogs couldn’t slow down Bowie in the non-district loss on Friday night.
Ty Harvey caught a six-yard touchdown pass from Cirby Coheley and Austin Lee added a six-yard TD run for Howe (0-2).
Matthew Wallace ran for 99 yards and four touchdowns on 20 carries for Bowie (1-1).
The non-conference game was an exciting small-town Texas high school football showdown in Bowie. Howe will continue to break down barriers with the determination of their mascot namesake as the Bulldogs look to earn their first victory of the 2017 season on Sept. 15 when they hit the road to take on their rivals.
The Howe Bulldogs will face off against the Muenster Hornets (2-0) who just scored a 42-0 shut out against Pilot Point during their Sept. 8 week two game. The upcoming game with Howe will take place at Muenster High School at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 15.
The following two games will be home games for Howe, with the Bulldogs facing Ford (2-0) on Sept. 22 and Caddo Mills (1-1) on Sept. 29.
Bulldogs head coach Zack Hudson and the rest of the players on the team hope that next week will mark their first victory of the season.
