ADDISON – The Addison Bulldogs hosted Elkmont for their first game this season. Elkmont started with the ball but quickly turned over on downs to give Addison their first play of the game.

Addison started fast against the Red Devils, scoring easily. With good blocking up front and very efficient dodging, senior quarterback Noah Rice rushed 54 yards for the touchdown and set the pace for the game.

Addison forced Elkmont to turn over on downs their next two possessions, finding the ball on their own 46-yard line and working down the field for another touchdown with 4:35 left in the first quarter. Senior Zeb Maze had the 2-yard carry, and the extra point put Addison ahead 14-0.

The second quarter wasn't much of a different story from the first except for the addition of rain. Lots of rain. Addison scored again on their first possession of the quarter with a few rush plays ending the drive with a 1-yard carry from Maze to put the Bulldogs up 21-0.

Addison kept the Red Devils from scoring on their next two drives and put them all the way back to their own 1-yard line. After a good punt return from Chandler Cookenmaster, the Bull Dogs started with a first down and 8 yards which seemed too easy for Benjamin Robinson, who scored right away. Adding the extra point, the score was 28-0 just before halftime.

As the teams waited in the locker rooms the rain continued to pour, eventually causing officials to call the game.
