WALLACE – A couple of West Bladen turnovers ignited the Wallace-Rose Hill offense, and the Bulldogs pulled away for a 50-12 Four County Conference jayvee football victory Monday night.

The game was postponed from last Thursday due to heavy rains in the area.

After Wallace-Rose Hill took an early 6-0 lead, Knight freshman quarterback Tyre Boykin threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to sophmore Kerron Washington that tied the game 6-6.

The Knight defense held the Bulldogs, but a West Bladen fumble led to a Wallace-Rose Hill touchdown. The Knights fumbled the ensuing on-side kick-off, and the Bulldogs drove for another touchdown.

“It started out promising,” said West Bladen Coach Kris Williams. “We answered their score with the touchdown pass then our defense got us the ball back. They took all the momentum when we fumbled the on-side kick.”

The Knights scored their second touchdown on the opening possession of the second half. Freshman Da’Shawn Hines busted through the line and raced 40 yards for the West Bladen touchdown.

West Bladen, now 2-3 on the season, will host Heide Trask Thursday at 6:30.
