The ECI Bulldogs scored an early second quarter touchdown on a 40-yard run by Ricky Lee and a late third quarter TD on a short run by Bobby McNear to defeat Toombs County 14-0 in three quarters of varsity play. Neither junior varsity team scored in the fourth quarter.  Watch a Bryce Braddy slideshow  Listen to Y-101 Radio’s broadcast

Just like in the 26-8 loss to Bradwell Institute in the first scrimmage, the Bulldogs moved the ball on offense. However, they couldn’t sustain a drive. Senior Bronza Jones led TCHS in rushing with 47 yards on 7 carries. Jones totaled 82 yards in 11 carries in the two preseason games.

The Bulldogs drove into the ECI red zone in the second quarter and on a fourth down play quarterback Jordan Usher had gained enough yardage to pick up the first down. However, the Bulldogs were flagged for their first penalty of the game and the holding call helped end the drive.
