Coahoma falls short against Idalou, focuses on playoffs

November 6, 2010

Coahoma's Sheigh Cravens runs past Idalou defenders during the Bulldogs' 14-6 loss to the Wildcats.

COAHOMA – Taking advantage every opportunity to score is key against Idalou and Coahoma couldn't exactly do that Friday.

But in a 14-6 loss, the Bulldogs got close to Idalou in a way other District 2-2A Division II teams haven't this season.

“When we went into this game, our kids thought they could beat them and they went our there and played that way,” head coach Trey Gardner said. “Idalou's a great team defensively, they are tremendous, but we're one or two plays away here and there. Reverse a few plays, we might of beat them.”

Coahoma's offense couldn't get going, but the Bulldogs' strength was their defense.

Jason Martinez's fumble returned for a touchdown to put the Bulldogs up 6-0 in the first gave Coahoma hope it could pull off the upset. The defense kept the Bulldogs in the game, too, after two Alec Estes touchdown passes, but in the second half the Bulldogs missed a chance to make the game closer.
