The Bulldog momentum continued with a 5-yard run and PAT to start the second quarter 21-0.

Enterprise’s senior back Tanner Waldrop returned the kickoff 80 yards, however, for a TD to bring the game a little closer at 21-6.

Sophomore running back Tailor Young scored for the Yellow Jackets again shortly thereafter with a 4-yard rushing TD, though the 2-point conversion attempt was no good. Clarkdale still led 21-12.

With 39 seconds left to go before the half, Clarkdale scored once again on a 13-yard run and tacked on the PAT to go into halftime leading 28-12.

After a scoreless third quarter, Clarkdale scored to start the fourth with a 4-yard run, but a failed two-point conversion. Clarkdale led 34-12.

It was a deficit from which the Yellow Jackets could not recover, as the Bulldogs scored once more on a one-yard run to close out the game 40-12.

The Yellow Jackets hit the road next Friday to face McLaurin. Kickoff between the two schools is set for 7 p.m.
