On Friday October 2, the Toombs County Bulldogs hosted the Berrien County Rebels in Booster Stadium for the first meeting ever between the two schools. On this Homecoming night, the weather was nice, the stadium was full, and the Bulldogs were hungry to avenge a 27-7 loss to West Laurens the week before. Berrien County won the toss and defeated to the second half. For the first time this season, Toombs would start the game on offense. Berrien appeared to be fired up as the forced the Bulldogs to punt on their first two possessions. Then on the Bulldogs third possession, Quarterback Chandler Lynn found a seam and floated 58 yards inside the Rebels 10 yard line. 2 plays later Brannon Usher scored from 4 yards out. Julian Marin-Vital punched the point after through giving Toombs a 7-0 lead with 2:04 remaining in the 1st Quarter. Berrien’s offense wasn’t harassed all night by Usher, Wil Watts and Tank Morris. The Bulldogs pushed the gas and continued scoring with a DJ Mincey Touchdown, Lynn to Tyler Heath on a 58 yards TD pass and another Usher Touchdown to give Toombs a 28-0 halftime lead. In the second half, it was more Bulldogs scoring as Mincey, Usher, and DJ Austin scored Touchdowns for the Bulldogs leading Toombs to a 49-0 win over Berrien. A night fit for Senior Mikenna Salem as she is our 2020 Homecoming Queen that was crowned at Halftime. Next Friday, Toombs will fave the Macon County Bulldogs in Montezuma. Macon County is currently the #3 ranked team in Single A and defeated Central Talbotton 63-6 on Friday to improve to 3-0.
