Bulldogs deal Riders 2nd straight loss

CELINA, OHIO – Not only did the Celina Bulldogs improve their WBL record to 5-1 on the season, they got to do so by beating their Grand Lake rivals the St. Marys Roughriders.

With just 1:21 remaining in the contest Bulldog Senior QB Caleb Hoyng capped off a 5:41 drive with a 2 yard touchdown run to put his squad on top 28-21.

One of the best ways to combat a ground attack like that of St. Marys is to flip the script and to sustain long time consuming drives of your own, something the Bulldogs excelled at from beginning to end of the game. After winning the coin toss and making the decision to take the football to open the game, Celina picked up a trio of first downs and used 10 plays in covering 85 yards for their first score. On the drives 10th play Hoyng connected on a 15 yard pass to the front of the endzone to Jacob Stolly to give the home squad a 7-0 lead.

St. Marys would see their first three drives come to an end after just three plays and a punt. After returning the football to the Riders 43 a pair of drives later the Bulldogs Zach Marks (19 carries, 142 yards) cashed in on the first of his two touchdown runs on the night, from a yard out to push the advantage to 14-0 with 11:56 to go in the opening half.

Celina’s fourth possession ended just as their third did, with a Marks touchdown run and upped their lead to 21-0 with 8:01 to go in the second stanza.

In order to keep the game from slipping away, the Roughriders needed a big play. As has been the case all season long, that play came from the WBL’s third leading rusher Eric Spicer whose 13 yard jaunt helped his team cross midfield for the first time in the game. Julius Fisher’s 4th touchdown run of the season would cap off a 12 play drive and get St. Marys on the board at 21-7 with 4:16 to go.

Despite being pinned back at their own 3 yardline after a long punt by Hoyng the Roughriders used just 2:05 on the Celina Stadium scoreboard clock to get within 7 points at the half when Dustin Howell connected with Spicer on a 33 yard scoring toss to make it 21-14 Celina.

Both squads would trade the football and field position to open the games penultimate quarter, and St. Marys would be the first to capitalize on it as they marched 73 yards to tie the contest at 21-21 with a 32 yard Eric Spicer touchdown run. Spicer’s touchdown run was his 9th of the season, he would finish his night with 19 carries for 145 yards and a pair of scores.

After the Hoyng touchdown gave Celina the lead at 28-21 the Roughriders began their final drive of the game at their own 24 with a pair of timeouts and quickly found themselves deep inside their opponents territory looking to tie the game and sent it to OT, but fell short as Howell was pressured into throwing an incomplete pass on 4th down.

Celina improves their record to 5-2 overall, and 5-1 in the Western Buckeye League. The Bulldogs will take on Van Wert (3-4) and look to keep pace in their run towards the playoffs.

St. Marys drops to 5-2 overall, and 4-2 in the WBL. The Roughriders will next play host to Defiance (1-6) on Friday night in their regular season home finale in a game that will be broadcast live on K94.3 FM beginning at 6:30.
