Bearden likes to go long distance but they did not have enough time or the big plays to prevent a 21 to 20 defeat at the hands of an inspired defense that the Bulldogs played last Friday night.
Bears won the toss but could do nothing with their turn so the ball went over to the Bullpups. They fumbled back to the Bears and they drew first blood with a 78 strike by air for a 6 to 0 lead.
It was a well earned award for Gauge Welch. Gauge rushed for 44 yards and a touchdown, threw for 100 yards and two scores and kicked 3 extra points.
Hampton fans took the longest trip they will have, in conference play, this year to see the bulldogs defeat Woodlawn 47 to 0.
