COLMESNEIL – In Bulldog Country, homecoming night proved a good game and a good win for the ‘Dogs.
The ‘Dogs hosted the Overton Mustangs at Taylor Field.
Colmesneil AD/HC Cody Day said he was proud of his team. “We got better this week,” he said.
The ‘Dogs pulled a 36-24 win against the Overton team. Colmesneil ran a total of 41 plays for 383 total yards (135 passing, 248 rushing).
Top players were QB Reed Best, with 138 passing yards and Jayden Shamblin with 176 rushing yards.
Friday’s win puts Colmesneil at a 3-1 overall record, and Overton drops to 1-3 with their loss.
This Friday, the ‘Dogs have one final non-district home game before hitting the road next week. They will play Cushing at Taylor Field.
Day said Cushing will be a challenge. “They do a great job running the option,” he said. Last year, Cushing came out on top of their match against Colmesneil, 40-14. Both teams are sitting at 3-1 records so far.
