Bulldogs play SOC next
September 28, 2013North Dallas High School Booster Club
North Dallas (2-1) plays No. 4-ranked South Oak Cliff at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Couch Field.
Head coach Charles Moss said the Bulldogs have to have a "solid" game against SOC in order to win.
"You can't make mistakes," he said. "You have to make the plays and protect the ball. You have to have a solid game in all three phases (offense, defense and special teams.)
"The key to beating anybody is trying to executing your plays."
North Dallas served up six turnovers and Bishop Dunne turned them into touchdowns en route to a 59-14 victory last week at Franklin Field.
The Bulldogs finished with 68 yards in total offense, including nine rushing yards.
Moss said the team learns from its mistakes.
"This is an opportunity to learn, and you teach from that," Moss said.
"We played a better second half. The team didn't give up. They kept fighting. You make corrections. We had two interceptions and two scores."
The Bulldogs scored on quarterback Jason Medellin's 58-yard pass to Geo Manning in the third quarter, and Medellin's 5-yard TD pass to Roderick Johnson.
Bulldogs face Bishop Dunne
North Dallas (2-0) now turns its attention to Bishop Dunne (2-1) with kickoff set for 7:30 p.m. Friday at Franklin Field.
"They're a run team first," said ND coach Charles Moss. "They're a well-coached team. We'll have to execute minimal mistakes in order to win."
Bishop Dunne defeated Lincoln, 42-41, last week, coming from behind in the final minute to win the game.
Moss said it's going to be an exciting game, and he wants "to see more people in the stands" at Friday's game.
Last week, the Bulldogs scored 21 points in the fourth quarter to take a 34-26 victory over Sunset at Sprague Field.
Trailing 26-13 early in the fourth quarter, ND quarterback Jason Medellin connected with Michael Roberts on a 13-yard touchdown pass, and Kris McGee tied the score on a 33-yard fumble return. Luis Chapparo put the Bulldogs ahead with the extra point with 3:20 left in the game.
"We stayed with the game plan," Moss said, "and we had some things bounce our way.
"It's a game of momentum and it changed to our side."
The Bulldogs held onto the ball in the final minutes. Running back John Jones sealed the victory, scoring on an 18-yard touchdown run with time running out.
"We kept the ball at the end of the game," Moss said. "We kept the clock."
North Dallas had 229 yards in total offense, compared to 198 for Sunset. Last year, ND defeated Sunset 58-22.
Medellin was 10 of 21 passes for 195 yards and two touchdowns. John Jones led all rushers with 49 yards on 12 carries.
