Poland’s offense grew quiet in the second half, until Austin Wilson put the Bulldogs back up by three scores on a 12-yard run, capping a 56-yard drive.

Opening the second quarter, Marlington took little time to get back into the game, running two plays and going 76 yards for a touchdown, cutting the Bulldog lead to 28-14.

Despite falling behind early, the Poland Bulldogs’ offense took control of their season opening game, taking a 28-7 lead in the first quarter.

Pushing their lead to three touchdowns, Mike Audi scored from one yard out to give the Bulldogs the 28-7 lead with two minutes left in the second quarter.

The Bulldogs continued to attack through the air as Wolfe connected with Duran on their second touchdown pass, this time from five yards out.

With the game tied heading into the second quarter, the Bulldogs offense engineered an 80-yard drive, capped off with a Ross Gould 3-yard touchdown run, giving the Bulldogs the touchdown advantage, 14-7.

Down by a touchdown, the Bulldogs answered with a long pass of their own. Quarterback Jacob Wolfe connected with Art Duran for a 30-yard touchdown, tying the game with less than a minute in the first quarter.

The Dukes jumped out early following a 40-yard touchdown pass.

Poland (1-0) will travel to take on Northwest next Friday night.
