Rabbits earn big win

The Bowie High School football team christened the home turf Sept. 8 at Jackrabbit Stadium, where they rebounded off a tough loss in the season opener for a big 37-14 win over the Howe Bulldogs.

The Jackrabbits opened the season with a 44-0 loss to Aubrey Sept.1, but the Jackrabbits picked themselves up, dusted themselves off and got back to work.

“I’m really proud of the guys on Friday night,” said Bowie Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Dylan Stark. “They bounced back from a real tough game the first week and were able to get that first win. We are playing tough teams so every win we get is hard. I’m proud of how they responded from not a good game the week before.”

Bowie went neck-and-neck with the Bulldogs in the first quarter, who were first on the scoreboard after Ty Harvey scored with a pass from Cirby Coheley.

However, Bowie’s Matthew Wallace was the next to put points on the board, followed by an extra point from Dillon Swaim after a three-yard pass from Wallace, to put Bowie in the lead.

After that first score, the Jackrabbits were relentless, scoring 14 in the second and 15 in the third while the defense didn’t allow a single Bulldog touchdown until the fourth quarter.
