The Lexington Bulldogs fell 50-0 on the road at Davis last week.

The Wolves jumped out to an early 13-0 lead after the first quarter and were up 19-0 heading to the half.

“They’re really athletic and big up front and we knew they’d give us trouble,” head coach Jeff Hall said of his offense.

“We went to the screen game and quick passing game and we moved the ball some. But they made adjustments and took that away. We had to try and run the ball and we didn’t get that done. Davis is a good team and they deserve a lot of credit.”

Colton Langford finished the night 10-17 passing for 85 yards. Jake Blanchard had four receptions for 36 yards and Chance Krueger had 19 yards on the ground.

Davis added to the lead in the third quarter, scoring 12 points. Lexington was able to hold the Wolves to just six fourth-quarter points.

“I felt like we played good in spurts defensively but they came out and scored 13 points in the first three minutes,” Hall said.

“The defense really played well at the end of the first and the beginning of the second quarter. With about four minutes to go in the first half it was 19-0. I felt like we were playing well but we turned it over and they scored some points the last 12 minutes of the half.”

Langford led Lexington with eight tackles followed by Blanchard and Kyle Hokett with seven tackles each.

“For the most part we played physical but they out-executed us in some areas. We knew that the key would be to execute and they did that better than us,” Hall said.

This week Lexington welcomes Kingston to town for the 2012 edition of homecoming. Kick off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at Floyd West Field.

New Kingston head coach John Caraway has the Redskins playing well, according to Hall.

“They’re physical and big. They’re a good team and we’re going to have our work cut out for us,” Hall said.

The Redskins are multiple on offense, lining up in a number of different formations from the I to an empty back set in the spread.

“We have to get lined up, number one and number two, we have to be physical. This is definitely a big week for our defense because of what they do,” Hall said.

“Offensively it’s just a matter of working on our execution. The biggest thing this week is how are we going to respond. A lot of teams have a bad week of practice following a loss but the good teams get better.”

Defensively, the Redskins run an odd stack 3-3.

“There defense is spread out and we have to do things in the short passing game and start running the ball,” Hall said.

Bulldog notes:

Head coach Jeff Hall didn’t have any Player of the Week nominations.
