After receiving the opening kickoff, senior quarterback Jacob Svihovec hit senior receiver Matt Osendorf in stride for a 65 yard touchdown pass. Osendorf would end the game with 204 receiving yards and two scores.
While the Bulldog offense was firing on all cylinders, their defensive game showed up too. Bowman County held the Cowboys to a three-and-out on their first possession, and didn’t allow a Killdeer first down until the 3:34 mark of the first quarter.
After a failed extra point on the first touchdown, the Bulldogs were successful on the second extra point on their second touchdown, ending the first quarter with a 13-0 lead.
Killdeer opened the second quarter with possession of the ball. But was short lived when junior Colby Schaff intercepted the ball with just a minute and 30 seconds into the quarter. Svihovec then scampered 53 yards for a touchdown. The extra point was good putting the Bulldogs comfortably ahead 20-0.
Sophomore Brody Headley got into the mix too and ran for a 15-yard touchdown midway through the second quarter. Headley would rush for 101 yards on 10 attempts.
Osendorf put the Bulldogs up 33-0 with a 43-yard touchdown catch from Svihovec and a successful point after try.
The Dawgs had one more possession before the end of the second quarter, but took a knee to get to half time.
It was a quiet third quarter when neither team scored. But with a hefty 33-0 lead by the Bulldogs, it was a running clock shortly after the fourth quarter began. By this time head coach Todd Frie had put in some of his younger players and let backup quarterback junior Tucker Strand take some snaps.
The Cowboys managed to grab one touchdown, a 10-yard passing score with about four minutes left in regulation.
Svihovec ending the night with 204 passing yards, all to Osendorf. He also added 67 yards rushing on four attempts with two rushing scores. Schaff had 45 yards running on eight attempts. Junior fullback John LeFlamme grabbed two yards on three attempts.
On the defensive side of the ball, sophomore linebacker Clay Heimer, senior defensive end Mitch Stuber and Tucker Strand each had 4 tackles. Stuber also sacked the Killdeer quarterback two times.
The win puts the Bulldogs 2-1 with a perfect 2-0 regional record, placing them third currently in the Region 4 standings. Bowman County travels to to Washburn to take on Southern McLean on Friday, Sept. 20.
