The Marlin Bulldogs have clinched a spot in the playoffs. In order to make the playoffs the Bulldogs needed to win against the New Waverly Bulldogs Friday, November 3, 2017 in New Waverly. The Bulldogs knew they needed to handle business on the field and they did just that.
The Bulldogs wasted no time making something happen early in the game. #7 Ish Brooks makes a pass to #8 Tyrese Mayes and he takes it in to the end zone for a Bulldog score.
