Turnovers costly in Bulldogs'
lackluster 19-0 loss to Chiles
BY AARON PORTWOOD
A lackluster defensive effort and
four turnovers on offense sent the
Taylor County Bulldogs to their
first loss of the 2005 season,
Friday night in Tallahassee, as
SChiles High improved to 2-0 with
"a 19-0 win.
In a defensive battle that featured
,..numerous penalties on both
teams, Taylor County's offense
never seemed to get on track and
the Bulldog defense gave up a,pair
-.of touchdowns on short drives
after fumbles by the offense and
The Bulldogs showed little
resemblance to the hard-hitting
squad that defeated Chipley, 24-21
in the season-opener and the
passing attack:fizzled after putting
up impressive numbers (8 of 19,
181 yards, 1TD) in the first game
of the year.
Taylor County did manage to
get its rushing attack on track after
managing just 55 yards on the
ground in the opener, as fullback
Delvan Whetsel emerged as the
'Bulldogs' leading ball carrier,
rushing 18 times for 85 yards.
'.* However, Whetsel fumbled once
,to set up Chiles' second
touchdown and QB Genario
-McNealy (14 carries, 31 yards)
fumbled four times and lost one,
while completing just 2 of 8
passes for 47 yards and one
Fullback Shawn Padgett carried
5 times for 24'yards, while
wingback Bryckoski Jackson
finished with 18 yards oh 4
carries. Wingback Tony Powell
'had just three yards on two.carries
and Gerald Walker lost four yards
on his only carry.
Powell's one catch went for 42
yards on the third play of the game
and Sebastian Ingram (who caught
four passes for 107 yards and a TD
last week) had a single five-yard
McNealy was sacked twice and
lost 20 yards on six tackles for
losses as the Bulldog offense

of Engineers was stopped due to
public pressure wherein it was felt
that barge traffic was outdated and

millions of dollars of land
