The night could not have started any better for the visiting Bulldogs who scored on their first two possessions and held the Braves’ offense to a pair of first downs forced two punts.

The game-opening BHS drive started on its own 29 and covered 10 plays in about 2-1/2 minutes.  It was a good mix of run and pass with a pair of tosses being the most notable plays.  Quarterback Trey Heidlage hit Austin Siefert for 19 yards and one of three first downs on the drive. The scoring play was on a 22-yard slant from Heidlage to Brayden Linkel.  It was Heidlage’s 20th touchdown pass and Linkel’s third TD reception of the season.

BC’s Lucas Hines broke through up the middle and blocked the extra point attempt.  With 9:18 left in the first quarter, the Bulldogs led 6-0.

A Braves ended punt gave the ball back to the BHS offense on the Dogs’ 27, and it didn’t take long for the Ripley County boys to score again.  Batesville ran just four plays, and all but one yard came on two carries.  The first was a 41-yard run up the gut by Austin Pohlman.  The second was Heidlage up the middle for 31 yards and the score after a nice ball fake to Pohlman.  Heidlage’s 27th rushing TD of the season was followed by a Nate Slavin point after kick.  With 5:34 left in the first quarter, BHS extended its lead to 13-0.

Once again, the Braves picked up only one first down on its next sereies. Batesville’s Charlie Dice and Devon Meeks made consecutive tackles for a loss which resulted in Brownstown Central’s second punt.

It appeared Batesville may have been on its way to a third straight scoring series.  Heidlage threw a nice ball down the BHS sideline to Siefert who elevated with the Braves’ Seth Borden. While Borden popped up off the ground with the football, the sideline official said Siefert came down with the ball and had possession first.
