Bulldogs will use bye to ‘get sorted’

The junior and senior varsity Belmont Bulldogs football teams will spend their bye weekend getting back to basics.

The junior and senior varsity Belmont Bulldogs football teams will spend their bye weekend getting back to basics.

The next senior varsity game is in Vancouver against the Notre Dame Jugglers on Friday, Oct. 11.

The juniors have two straight byes, which actually works out, says coach Kevin Harrington.

“It’s not normally ideal to have two byes but it is for our juniors right now as we’re just adding a few guys in still. We’re at 19 now and hoping for a few more, and need to get them all up to speed.”

The senior team will watch film from the 35-13 loss to the New Westminster Hyacks last week.

“We need to get back to basics. We came out flat against New West. I’m hoping to get that sorted out against Notre Dame next week,” Harrington said.

The Bulldogs scored twice against the Hyacks as wide receiver Adam Philp caught a touchdown pass and Sam Varao rushed for the other major.
