Special Teams MVP: Sterling Galban By Wayne Craig Bulletin Sports The China Spring JV Cou- gars slipped past the Bulldogs last week, 7-6. Burnet drove inside the 5-yard line twice without scoring, once just before the half and once at the end of the game. The defense played lights- out causing and recovering three fumbles in the course of the game, but the offense was only able to cash in one of the short-field opportunities. Burnet's lone touchdown came on a 2-yard Ryan Jack- son rush that was set-up by a Roger Craig forced fumble recovered by Gerardo Murillo. That score came in the first quarter and gave the Bulldogs a 6-0 lead. In the second quarter Chi- na Spring cashed in a 7-yard passing play for six and tacked on the extra-point giving them a 7-6 lead. That turned out to be the games only scores which led to a Cougar victory. Burnet's defense was led by Zach Ferguson, Craig, Dylan Wilson, and Murillo.
