ETOWAH, Ala. – After dropping a tight heartbreaker at Good Hope last week, the Hanceville Bulldogs were back on the road Friday night for a big regional matchup against Etowah. Unfortunately for the Bulldog faithful in the stadium, the Blue Devils dominated most of the game on their way to a 48-7 win over Hanceville.

Etowah took control in the first quarter, building a 21-0 lead over the Bulldogs by the start of the second. The Blue Devils continued to add to their lead and Hanceville went into the locker room trailing 34-0 at halftime.

Etowah extended its lead to 48-0 at one point before Bulldogs quarterback Noah Jones ran one into the end zone to cut the lead to 48-7 in the final minute of the game. That was all the offense Hanceville was able to muster late in the game and the Blue Devils went on to defeat the Bulldogs 48-7.

Hanceville falls to 2-6 with the loss and the Bulldogs will be off next week before hosting Fultondale Oct. 21.
