GARNETT – The Chargers in a Pioneer League match-up stunned the Anderson County in the Bulldogs home opener by a score of 43-26.

“We had a rough game for our home opener. We played flat with little energy. Our (offensive) line was challenged with their front line on both sides of the ball,” said Bulldogs head coach Logan Pegram.

Running back Bo Dilliner had 115 yards rushing and 1 touchdown. Austin Edens led the scoring effort with 2 touchdowns and 94 yards.

“We had some kids step up in certain roles which will allow them the opportunity to produce next week.”

Coach Pegram also put some emphasis on the coaching staff in the team’s loss Sunday night.

“We have to do a better job coaching our kids up through the week in order to get the results we are looking for on Friday nights.”

Anderson County (2-1) will travel to Iola (0-3) to open up district play next week. Iola lost to Chanute 42-0 on Friday night.

“We have a big challenge ahead of us with a hungry Iola team that has done a lot of good things this year with their rushing attack. We look forward to playing them at Iola on Friday.”

Santa Fe Trail (2-1) will open up district play against Topeka-Hayden.
