Bryan County dropped a 42-7 decision at home Friday night against Toombs County, falling to 0-5 overall and 0-2 in Region 2-AA.

The game had been rescheduled from Sept. 15 due to Hurricane Irma.

The Bulldogs scored on their first possession of the game, taking a 7-0 lead with 8:13 left in the first quarter.

The Redskins held Toombs County on its next possession, forcing the Bulldogs to punt on fourth-and-19 from their own 49 yard line. Yadevern Eason blocked the punt and Deaquavius Williams recovered it at the Toombs County 20, but referees called roughing the kicker on the Redskins, allowing the Bulldogs to punt again. Bryan County coaches in the press box were questioning the referee’s call because the Redskins had blocked the punt.

Toombs got the ball back at the very end of the first quarter and scored again 30 seconds into the second quarter. After the Redskins were forced to punt on their next two possessions, the Bulldogs added two more touchdowns and led 28-0 with 24 seconds left in the first half.

Toombs nearly scored again as the first half expired after Bryan County fumbled the kickoff, but the score was waved off due to a holding penalty.

The Bulldogs scored on their first possession of the third quarter, and the 35-0 lead meant a running clock. Toombs made it 42-0 with a minute left in the third.

The Redskins finally got on the board with five minutes left in the game when Gage Hagan hit Dane Hires in the end zone on fourth-and-8 from the 15. The running clock only allowed Bryan County two possessions each in the third and fourth quarters.

The Redskins host Metter (2-4, 0-3) at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Richmond Hill had a bye this week. The undefeated Wildcats begin Region 2-AAAAAA play at Bradwell Institute at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
