Going into Friday night 2-0, Montevallo’s Bulldogs took another win 45 to 22 against BB Comer Friday, Sept. 9 making them 3-0.

“Our defense played really hard tonight,” Wilcox said.  “Coach Jones did an exceptional job with coming up with a great game plan. You could tell the kids understood what we were trying to accomplish on that side of the ball. Offensively, we have to continue to develop our younger guys up front and gel as a unit. We have to do a better job of taking care of the football and finishing off drives. Overall it was a great to get another ‘W’ and we will learn from our mistakes.”

With nine minutes left in the first quarter, senior wide receiver Treshawn Brown  scored the first touchdown of the night on a pass from senior Zac Oden. Senior Diego Martinez put the extra point through the uprights giving the Dogs the lead, 7-0.   Later in the first quarter,  Oden made another pass to Brown for the second touchdown of the night.

“I was just trying to start the game off with a bang,” Brown said.  “In both cases, I was able to outrun their cornerback and get open for Zac to throw me the ball.”

The Tigers got their only score for the first half off an interception that was run back for a touchdown.  The extra point attempt was no good.
