The Bellingham Bulldogs tackled a familiar foe from the past in the Renton Ravens Saturday, July 9th at Lummi High School Field. This evening the Bulldogs honored a fallen bother as they paid tribute to the memory of #41, Doug Neumann.
The somber tone set by the ceremony would quickly dissipate as the Ravens struck early with a touchdown.

Throughout the game both sides were heated, resulting in several drive-killing penalties. The Bulldogs and Ravens utilized their ground game, pounding out each yard. However, Bellingham would be the first to open up their passing attack and ultimately besting their long-time rival in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter. Final score 19-14.
