Opportunities Lost 2
Missed opportunities and turnovers proved to be too much to overcome for Sulphur last Friday night, as the Dogs fell to 0-2 in a 31-20 loss to Washington at Agee Field.
The Dogs turned the ball over four times and also got inside the Washington 20 four times and didn’t score, something head coach Jim Dixon says can’t happen.
“You cannot do that and beat good teams,” he said. “Plain and simple. It’s a killer and we have to get rid of that really quick.”
The game was scoreless in the 1st quarter, but Washington got on the board early in the 2nd, after senior Kaden DuBois drilled a 51-yard field goal to make it 3-0.
Sulphur would show some life later in the 2nd, as TJ Todd picked off Washington QB Emmitt Wilk and returned it to the Washington 49.
