Washington Bounces Back With 20-6 Region Win Over Therrell

Washington head coach Justen Rivers talks with his players during timeout against Therrell

On Saturday, the Therrell Panthers hosted the Washington Bulldogs in region play as the Panthers looked to secure their first region win of the season, while Washington looked to bounce back from their second region loss of the season last week to Columbia. The Bulldogs looked good on their opening drive as they found themselves at the Therrell 20 yard line, Washington quarterback, Andrew Cullins’ pass would bounce off of one of his receivers and end up in the hands of Therrell’s Kameron Slade.

The Panthers would fail to convert on the ensuing possession and later in the first quarter, the Bulldogs would get on the scoreboard first following a Shannon Clayton rushing touchdown. Washington would tack on a two point conversion and take an 8-0 lead. The Therrell offense would respond with a score of their own as Marlon Palmer would connect with Braelen Dory for a 60 yard touchdown pass and after a failed attempt on the two point conversion, the Panthers trailed Washington 8-6.

The Bulldogs would get into the end zone once again in the second quarter thanks to a Jayden Turner rushing touchdown as they would go up 14-6, but both offenses would struggle throughout the remainder of the first half as well as in the third quarter. Eventually in the fourth quarter, Washington would score on a 4th and goal touchdown by Cullins on a quarterback keeper up the middle behind his offensive line. The Bulldogs would fail on the two point conversion and take a 20-6 lead, which would be the final score.

Follow the game, Washington head coach, Justen Rivers said that coming into the night, his players knew they would have to have a bounce back response and get the win. “We had to bounce back and I think they did a good job of responding,” Rivers said despite there being a few areas he felt the team could have done better in. “I didn’t like how we handled certain situations with running the football, we have to be able to run the football at all times,” Rivers said adding that although offensively, his team got off to a slow start, he believes that moving forward, they will “get it fixed”.
