DOUGLASS—The 2019 Bulldogs decided to leave off right where the 2018 squad did. Douglass rolled over Wichita Independent 56-6 on Friday night.
Cole Martin led the Bulldogs, he had 150 all-purpose yards and four touchdowns. He was the catalyst getting the offense going.
Before Douglass got started, Wichita Independent struck first blood with a 70-yard touchdown pass from Tanner Bailly to Nick Jackson.
The rest of the game was a Bulldogs' dream.
After a safety, Martin ran in on a seven-yard dive, putting Douglass up 10-0. Martin capped off a stellar second quarter by finding Keylan Jones on a 24-yard touchdown pass, putting Douglass up 16-6 at the break.
Martin opened up the third quarter by dashing 46 yards to the end zone. Jones got into the action, taking a punt back 41 yards for the touchdown. The damage had been done when Martin found Jones again. When the dust had settled, Douglass held a 40-6 lead.
The Bulldogs put in a couple of fourth quarter touchdowns, putting the score above the half-century mark.
Douglass held Independent to only 160 yards of total offense. They intercepted two passes and made the Panthers miserable all evening long.
Martin finished with 150 all-purpose yards, including 6-of-13 passing. Jones had two touchdowns on two receptions and 37 yards. That's efficiency at its best. Jones had over 100 all-purpose yards as well.
Douglass will now play Garden Plain on Friday. Douglass has not won in the head-to-head against Garden Plain since the early 90s and will be looking to get that monkey off their back.
