The Bellingham Bulldogs followed suit, knocking out the visiting Pacific Football League South Sound Nighthawks, Saturday May 7th, on Mother's Day Weekend at Lummi High School. Closing out their preseason undefeated, the Bulldogs look to take on the rest of the WWFA in their inaugural season.
Bellingham's offense started sluggish, trading punts on their first and second drives. However a shortened field on a muffed punt return by the Nighthawks turned into a scoring opportunity. After a series of running plays the Bulldogs struck with their first touchdown pass of the game. They would strike again on their next possession but this time on the ground. With less than one minute left on the clock in the second quarter Bellingham would scored again with a field goal.
The Bulldogs' defense imposed their will early on. Bending just enough but not allowing a single Nighthawk to score the entire game. Bellingham would tack on two more touchdowns, one by air and one with their running attack, making a statement to the rest of the league of their arrival and intention to dominate the WWFA 2016 season. Final score 31-0. Click here to view photos from the game.
