LOUDONVILLE — The first play of the game can sometimes be a sign for things to come. For East Knox, it was a bad sign — a really bad sign.
The Bulldogs fumbled on the first play and Loudonville pounced, rolling to a 62-22 victory in a Mid-Buckeye Conference game Friday at Loudonville.
“We did not come out with the effort or the intensity that we needed in the first half and you saw the results,” said East Knox coach Calvin Hatfield. “We turned the ball over the first play — that’s not very good. We did a lot of things that hurt us.”
The Redbirds (7-0 overall, 2-0 MBC), on the other hand, came out fired up. After the fumble recovery, they needed just four plays to punch it into the end zone. In fact, Loudonville scored on its first six possessions of the game, the longest of which was an eight-play drive.
