The Bellingham Bulldogs took on the South Sound Shockers in their second regular season game of 2012 at Civic Field Saturday, April 21st. The Bulldogs offense started sluggish, calling on their defense to ignite the Bellingham football engine. The Dog's D did not disappoint. Flexing their front-line muscle the Bulldogs forced the Shockers to punt out of their own end zone, providing the Bulldogs offense with a short field to operate. After quick strike from Cody Oakes to Toby Seim for a touchdown, the pedal was pushed to the floor. A fumble recovery on the next Shockers possession by the explosive Dog's D gave Bellingham's offense another short field but penalties cut the drive short. The Shockers stumbled to their feet and threw a 61-yard bomb down field for a touchdown. Determined to not let the Shocker score again the Bulldogs defense stiffened and pushed the Shockers around the field, allowing the Dog's O to open up the throttle and score 41 unanswered points. The Bulldogs defense also added a score of their own with an interception return of a touchdown by Miguel Pierre. The Shockers did not score again until mid-third quarter. In the end the Dog's defensive machine was too much for the Shockers to overcome. Final score 53-12. Click here to view photos of the game.
