The Dora Bulldogs won a regional game 42-20 against Haleyville (2-2) on Friday at Horace-Roberts Field in Dora. 

Dora halfback Jayden Griffin rushed for three of Dora’s six touchdowns and totaled 171 yards on 20 carries. Quarterback Kesean Pryor rushed for 93 yards and two touchdowns, and was 8-for-10 passing for 131 yards and a touchdown. 

As a team, the Bulldogs amassed a total of 424 yards of offense – 293 yards on the ground and 131 yards through the air. 

On the defensive side of the ball, Josh Williams had two interceptions and Coby Foster collected another. Additionally, Will Richardson had five solo tackles and six assists, and Garrett Hogland had five tackles.

Coming into the game, Dora was looking for a statement win over Haleyville. However, miscues led to a slow start for the Bulldogs and Haleyville went in to the half with a 14-6 advantage. 

The second half proved to be a much different story. The Bulldogs adjusted and began to do little things well, providing great blocks that led to touchdowns and limiting the penalties. Dora scored three touchdowns in the 3rd quarter alone to take a 28-14 lead, and there was simply nothing the Lions could do. 

The Bulldogs (3-1) face Corner (3-0) on Friday in the County Line Clash at Horace-Roberts Field in Dora. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. WL
