GC Football: Dawson falls to Normangee, 52-7

Dawson — The Normangee Panthers showed a skillful quarterback and a potent passing game in their victory over Dawson with a final score of 52-7. Elijah Eastern racked up 259 yards through the air and 4 touchdowns all in the first half. This put the nail in the coffin to Dawson’s Homecoming victory aspirations.

The home stands sprung up and came alive with joy when Dawson scored their first touchdown since the first game of the year against Crossroads. It was a 77 yard kick return by Ian Norwood that put up the hoots and hollers. But that was all the Bulldogs could muster in their 6th game of the year.

A reason for the Bulldogs lack of success was the absurd amount of turnovers especially fumbles. In all Dawson had 8 balls pop out and lost 5 of them. All the turnovers never allowed the Bulldogs to get in a groove because every time they got into a nice rhythm they would lose a ball and the momentum would quickly switch to Normangee’s favor.

A bright spot in Dawson’s offense was a hard working performance by the running backs Ian Norwood and Dalton Long. Norwood gained 45 yards and a kickoff return for a touchdown while Long gained 87 on the ground.

    Minutes after Navarro split a doubleheader with Paris on Wednesday, Navarro softball Coach Jessica Karenke was told her Bulldogs had just been nationally ranked and are now No. 16 in the NJCAA national softball poll.
    She had no idea.
    And she didn't care.
    Karenke is worried about what happens on the diamond, and she had some concerns after Navarro made four errors in the second game that opened the door for Paris to pull off a 7-2 win after the Bulldogs and Ciara Luna controlled the first game with a 4-1 win.

    They did it again Tuesday, beating the Tigers 4-0 at Price Field to take over second place in the District 16-4A race.
    Lindale (6-2) had one big inning to hand Corsicana (5-3) its second loss in a row.
