Bulldogs finish tough season with loss

MERIDIAN —     Clarkdale finished the 2012 season without a win, as the Bulldogs fell to Mize 41-7 Friday night.

    Things did not start well for Clarkdale, as it fumbled the opening kickoff only to see Mize score on the next play on a 24-yard touchdown run.

    Mize would strike again later in the first, scoring on a 55-yard run to make the 14-0.

    In the second quarter, Mize would get two more touchdowns, including a 19-yard touchdown pass right before the half to put them up 27-0 heading into the break.

    The lone bright spot on the night for Clarkdale came in the fourth quarter, as Dontae Shelby ran in a 41-yard touchdown to give the Bulldogs their only score of the night.

    “We got to go back the drawing board next season and see what we can do,” head coach Chris Richmond said. “We got a young team, and we really got to get back into that weight room and get more physical.”
