The MCMS Bulldog football team ran its record to 2-0 on Wednesday with a solid 28-12 win over a good Byron team. After trading possessions with Eagles, Monroe was able to get on the board when running back Mason Stephens took a handoff around the left end and darted in and out of traffic for a 39-yard touchdown run. Corey Mixon added the extra point for a 7-0 Bulldog lead.
The game stayed that way until there were 2 minutes left in the half. The Eagles were able to put a big play together for a 65 yard TD. The 2 point conversion attempt failed leaving the Dogs clinging to a 7-6 halftime lead. It was all Dogs in the second half. After holding Byron to minus 15 yards to open the half, the Bulldog offense struck quickly. Taking the handoff, Ladarian Zellner ran over left tackle and broke through the defense for a 40 yard TD run. On the 2 point conversion, QB Hagan Bailey threw to Grayson Bennett for the conversion.
