The Quincy Jacks struggled from the get-go against a physical, hard-hitting Cashmere Bulldogs squad during the latter school's homecoming game, losing a lopsided encounter, 55-7.
The Bulldogs scored touchdowns on their first three series, including a TD 66 seconds into the game, and also cashed in on a muffed punt in the fourth series.
Armed with a 28-0 lead halfway through the second quarter, the Bulldogs managed to find yet another gear as halftime approached, scoring twice within 21 seconds. A 17-yard touchdown pass gave the 'Dogs a 35-0 lead with 47 seconds to go, and then a long fumble recovery set up a 2-yard touchdown run with 21 seconds left.
With the game out of reach and with several players who suited up for Quincy against Toppenish last week now wearing street clothes for this game, the short-handed Jacks did not quit, and took away the Bulldogs' chance at a shutout, thanks to a long bomb by quarterback Andrew Townsend, which found Kenny Thompson deep in the Bulldogs' red zone late in the third quarter.
A couple of plays later, Sergio Cordova hit paydirt on a short run into the end zone, and put the Jacks on the board, 42-7.
The Bulldogs scored twice more before time expired, and the Jacks returned home thinking about their next league contest, a home game next Friday against the visiting Cascade Kodiaks.
The Kodiaks lost their own Homecoming Game to Chelan Friday night, 55-54, according to the Caribou Trail League's website.
This story is developing, as statistics were not available prior to deadline. Kickoff for the 0-4 Jacks against the 1-3 Kodiaks is scheduled for 7 p.m.
