The Clarion-Goldfield-Dows varsity football season came to a tough end last Friday night at Hampton, as the Hampton-Dumont Bulldogs posted a 28-0 win to put the Cowboys at a 3-6 record for the year.
“Of course it was a disappointing way to end the season, but I thought the kids fought hard throughout the game,” said head coach Paul Hansch. “We missed a scoring opportunity just before halftime which was critical. Had we scored there, we could have put ourselves back in the game and were going to receive the kick to start the second half. We had other opportunities to score, as we drove the ball inside their ten-yard line twice in the second half but were stopped both times.”
The Cowboys posted 261 total yards of offense, including 204 rushing yards, compared to 247 total yards for the Bulldogs. The Cowboys had 11 first downs, compared to the Bulldogs with six, and were whistled five times for 70 yards in penalties compared to the Bulldogs nine flags for 60 yards.
Zach Pogge rushed the ball 23 times for 93 yards, with Trenton Sann having his number called 18 times to the tune of 78 yards gained. Joel Haberman added 33 yards on seven tries to round out the ground attack. Sann was four of 12 in passing for 57 yards and two picks. Haberman caught four balls for 48 total yards and Kirby Simmons one pass for nine yards.
