10-12 boys -- The Cedar Lane Bulldogs picked up their first win of the season on Saturday, defeating the Bannaker Falcons, 6-0.

Daniel Price scored the game's only touchdown, following the blocks of John Allen, Aaron Allen and Tony DiGiovanni into the end zone from 12 yards out. Robert Higdon, Gabe Phillips and Sean Aaron also provided solid blocking during the drive, opening holes for running back Keith Sheppherd.

Quarterback Rick Hearn also was sharp, completing a number of passes to Brandon Bryant and Jason Wade.

On defense, the Columbia team got great efforts from guard Joey Ellis, end Brian Plummer, linebackers Trent Heiser and Eric Johnson and safety Mat Von Paris.

The victory was sealed when safety Walter Bruton intercepted two passes in the waning seconds of the game.

9-11 boys -- The Columbia Bulldogs improved to 5-1 with a 20-0 win over the Dundalk Packers.

Halfback Wes Lakenan got the scoring started in the first quarter with a 10-yard touchdown run. Matt Schourds' conversion run made it 7-0.

The Bulldogs then used a little trickery to extend their lead to 14-0. Halfback J. C. Porter threw an option pass to Chris Yetter, who took it in for a 30-yard touchdown. Aaron Dennis added the extra point.

Halfback Jimmy DiPietro finished the scoring with a 4-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

Also playing well for the Bulldogs were ends Jimmy Kinniry and Lawrence Ralph, tackles Joe Tortella, Chris Shewchuk and Steve Bock, guards Jeremy Kirsch and J. W. Fleshman, center Chuck Fries, quarterback Jeremey Walter and fullback Adam Snyder.

11-13 boys -- The Columbia Bulldogs struck early and often Saturday, improving their record to 3-2 with a 38-0 win over Dundalk.

After Mike Smith capped Columbia's opening drive with a 30-yard touchdown run, Marcus Bright recovered a Dundalk fumble to set up Brandon Finney's 40-yard touchdown run.

But Dundalk again fumbled on its next possession, and J. R. Haas recovered and took it in for the score to give the Bulldogs a three-touchdown lead.

The team also got later scores from Jabraille Jackson and Randy Curtain.

Defensively, Kyle Peddicord, Kevin Murphy and Tim Hendren led the way as the Bulldogs didn't allow a first down. Their kicking game also was effective, and included holder T. J. Welsh's recovery of a poor center snap, enabling Byron Whisnant to kick the extra point.
