HOWE — It was all Bulldogs as Howe steamrolled the Callisburg Wildcats to a, 21-0, win in their last game of the season on Friday, Nov. 10 during District 5-3A (II) competition. The Bulldog offense opened the ball game with a barrage of offense, scoring their 21 total points all in the first quarter.
Led by running back Andrew Griffin, who ran for 203 yards and scored two touchdowns on 32 carries, the Bulldogs dominated the ground game, gathering a total of 249 yards and the two scores for the day.
Quarterback Chase Harvey would connect with Ty Harvey for a 10-yard touch down reception to cap off the Bulldogs scoring for the night.
The Howe defense was beyond impressive, keeping the Callisburg offense to only 46 plays and 60 total yards. They clocked 29 total tackles — 12 of them resulting in loss of yardage — along with two interceptions and a forced fumble.
Andrew Griffin would shine on the defensive side of the ball as well, with 6.5 total tackles, 3.5 of them resulting in a loss of yardage. This defensive performance kept the Wildcats to only converting 8 first downs, never once converting on third or fourth down situations.
This win will wrap up another Howe Bulldog season, and the Bulldogs team will carry the momentum of this win and the lessons from this year into next season as they look to light up the scoreboard.
