Bulldogs run roughshod over Argo, secure playoff berth
Richards players understood Argo’s pain. Then they proceeded to add to it.
A week after dropping a gut-wrenching one-point verdict to South Suburban Conference Red leader Evergreen Park — just as the Bulldogs had in Week 5 — the Argonauts were forced to try and remedy themselves against Richards. That proved to be mission impossible.
The Bulldogs had to journey to Summit Friday night, but being the road team was about the only thing that didn’t directly benefit them. Its visitor status was of little consequence, however, to Richards.
Foremost among the Bulldogs’ batch of home wreckers was a defense that completely stifled an Argo offense that had amassed 44 points versus Evergreen and averaged slightly more than five touchdowns per contest through the season’s first six weeks. Against the Bulldogs, the Argonauts netted only 42 total yards, a number that was greatly affected by minus-58 rushing yards on 18 carries.
