Bulldogs top UC football
County rivalries have created many memories in sports for Union County, and on Monday night, a new chapter opened with New Albany and Union County football facing one another.
The junior high game marked the first meeting between the teams, with the Bulldogs taking the win, 36-0 at Kitchens’ Field.
“We had some good things happen tonight, only turned the ball over once, but overall we’re not playing well and we’re not playing like we practice,” UC head coach Scott Duley said. “We’re playing with no enthusiasm, and you can’t play football that way.”
UC struggled to defend the run against the Bulldogs, who were up 22-0 at the half.
“Right now, they’re not excited. They’re excited in practice and when we do Oklahoma drills and they’re excited all the time until they play in a game, then they’re flat,” Duley said.
This was the first of two meetings between county rivals. Union County and New Albany junior varsity will play one another on October 18 at Kitchens’ Field.
Union County JV hosted Jumpertown last night and both squads will play at Baldwyn next Tuesday, starting with the junior high game at 5:30 p.m.
