  • The Mexico Bulldogs football team will be looking for its first win on Friday when they travel to Marshall for their first NCMC game of the season.
    Beating conference rival Marshall (1-1) would be a confidence builder for the Bulldogs (0-3).
    Last week Mexico lost 40-0 to California while Marshall was defeated by St. Joseph Lafayette 33-14, a team Mexico lost to by the score of 52-16 in its season opener.
    According to first-year Bulldogs Head Coach Ty Harrison, the Owls are very improved since last year and the Bulldogs will need to come on strong to beat them.
    Describing the Bulldogs' preparation for Friday's game, Harrison commented, "We have been working on fundamentals and execution." The Bulldogs also need to be consistent in their performance explained the coach.
    In the game against the California Pintos, the Bulldogs had some early success running the ball for first downs, but because of their youth and inexperience, they were unable to stop the Pintos' offense, allowing them to break a big run and score.
    The Bulldogs have little time to dwell on the past and will continue to focus on improvement from week to week with the Owls being their center of attention this week. Last season the Bulldogs came out on top 34-8 against the Owls.
    The Bulldogs will be without Alex Hall WR/DB, Friday who is out with a concession.
    The Bulldogs will return home on Sept. 14 when they will play the Hannibal Pirates, another NCMC foe.
