Bulldogs stumble at home against the Stallions

Sun parts the gloom of overcast skies illuminating Civic Field for a bout between two Pacific Football League heavy-weights Saturday, May 16th. The Bellingham Bulldogs tried to makeup for their first 2015 home loss with a victory over the visiting Stallions from Seattle. The Stallions were out the gate early, taking the opening kickoff to the house and stunning the Bellingham crowd. The Bulldogs would not give up so easily. Moving the ball down-field with a balanced ground and air attack Bellingham positioned themselves in the red zone for a touchdown. But it was not without cost. Several miscues lead to the use of all three of their first half timeouts. The Bulldogs scored two more touchdowns, relying on their defense for quick three-and-outs. However Seattle rallied and scored three unanswered touchdowns to head into half-time with the lead. The second half was dismal for the Bulldogs as injuries to key players and unfortunate officiating killed all momentum in Bellingham's favor. The Stallions kept their foot down, scoring three more times they dominated play an field and handed the Bulldogs their second home loss of the season. Final score 21-45.
