Throughout the last few seasons, losing streaks have rarely been associated with the Sulphur Bulldogs. That was until Friday night. The Marlow Outlaws took full advantage of less than favorable conditions, as they walked into Calvin Agee Field and sprang an upset on the No. 5 Bulldogs, winning 26-12. With the loss, the Bulldogs drop to third overall in the 3A-2 standings with two games left, as they sit at 6-2 overall and 3-2 in district play. Tavs McDonald got the Bulldogs off to a flying start in the first quarter with an 80-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to make it 6-0. Marlow responded in the second quarter with a 12-yard touchdown from Brian Zhang to make it 7-6, before Jace Gilbert converted a 20-yard field goal to make it 10-6 at the half. The Outlaws got a safety in the third quarter to make it 12-6, before Nate Herchock caught a 55-yard pass from Gilbert for a touchdown to make it 19-6. Gilbert got another touchdown pass in the fourth quarter, before the Bulldogs got a late consolation score from Reese Ratchford on a three yard run. McDonald was the leading rusher for the Bulldogs with 10 carries for 112 yards on the night. Ratchford finished the game 3-of-9 passing for 76 yards and one interception. Price Daube was the leading receiver in the game for Sulphur with three catches for 76 yards. Sulphur is back in action at 7 p.m. Friday in Oklahoma City against Douglass.
