Frost eases past Dawson, 41-0

- — DAWSON — Its only early fall but Frost is already on the ground. The overpowering Frost running game accounted for 419 yards, with 149 and two touchdowns coming from power-back Robert Worley in a 41-0 win over Dawson.

End arounds and other deceiving plays were the Bulldogs killer. Frost improved to 5-4, 2-1 in District 9-1 DII, while Dawson fell to 0-8, 0-2.

In the opening stanza Frost went on top early as they capitalized on a Dawson three-and-out and drove down the field in 10 plays. The Bulldog defense did a nice job on containing running plays that were between the tackles, but Frost’s outside runs and reverses gained numerous yards. In total Dawson held the Polar Bears to under five yards on 18 occasions, but the Bulldogs also allowed plays of 10 or more yards 15 times, which helped average out the yards per carry to a little over 8 yards per carry.

Dawson’s offense came out of the gate slow in the first half but on their third drive they were moving the ball well and were approaching the Polar Bear’s red zone when an errant toss put the Bulldogs back 8 yards and led to more trouble, with them ending up on the 46 and punting. They were again on the brink of a score while approaching halftime but a false start penalty put them back five yards and they never recovered. The second half was full of mistakes that cost the Bulldogs the chance to score many times. The Bulldogs again had a rough night with ball handling as they put six fumbles on the ground and only came up with two of them.

The Polar Bears were a force on the ground with two huge power backs that racked up most of the yardage. Robert Worley was a dual threat as he not only had the ability to truck any opposing player, he could also sprint with the best of them. He gained 149 yards on just 19 carries.

Not only did Frost did have power backs but they also had some speedy guys that kept the Bulldogs on their toes. After halftime the Polar Bears came out with a bang when quarterback Zach Terry completed a 68 yard pass to Woody Woods. They then scored on three of their next four drives, averaging only slightly over five plays per drive.

The key to the Polar Bears’ offensive success was the momentum the defense created after a Dawson drive would venture into Frost territory, but would ultimately by stopped by a tough-nosed Polar Bear defense.

Frost’s defense would bend, but never break. The Polar Bears contained the big offensive plays that Dawson needed to compete in the game.
