The San Marcos Rattlers took on the Bowie Bulldogs at home Friday night for the district championship. Both teams came into the game undefeated in district play and looking to the playoffs as they both have clinched spots.
San Marcos was never able to get anything offensively going in the first half. Jamon Johnson didn’t even get a running attempt until the second quarter. But early San Marcos defense was holding Bowie to only a field goal in the first quarter. The defense had a rough time stopping Dalynn Threadgill from Bowie as he started running down the field in the second quarter, scoring a few times as they led 24-0 at half.
Bowie started the second half with forcing a Rattler three-and-out, and then going down the field for a Wade Smith throwing touchdown to go up 31-0. Bowie, after stopping the Rattler offense again, ran the ball down the field and scored a third rushing touchdown for the game to go up 38-0. Bowie kept their dominance going as they put another touchdown on the Rattlers to go up 45-0.
To start the fourth Quarter, Kyle Carter rushed 45 yards for a touchdown to extend the lead to 52-0. Bowie went down again to score their sixth rushing touchdown for the game to go up 59-0.
San Marcos scored their first points of the night with less than two minutes left as they ran it in to make it 59-7. That would be the final score.
Playoffs begin next weekend for both San Marcos and district champion Bowie.
