Bulldogs outlast Ravens

The Bellingham Bulldogs kickoff their 2011 minor league football season with a preseason victory over the visiting Ravens from Renton Saturday April, 16. The Dogs jumped out to an early lead by capitalizing on two offensive miscues by Renton, returning and interception for a touchdown and recovering a fumble for another. The Bulldogs held the lead by scoring at least twice per quarter despite a late rally by the Ravens. The game was ended with 4:38 left in the fourth quarter, and the Ravens threatening to score, when the Ravens' wide receiver Andre Jackson suffered a neck injury during a play. He was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital as a precaution. Final score 46-28. To view photos from the game click here.
