Watertown continues hot streak, tops Bulldogs 44-0


WATERTOWN-The host Purple Tigers ran up and down the field for almost 500 total yards here Friday night as they handed the Clay County Bulldogs a 44-0 defeat.


The Tigers got a whopping 249 yards rushing from Dylan Holycross on only 14 carries, and the Watertown all-purpose back scored on four long runs covering 54, 93, 60 and 18 yards. For good measure, he caught a pass for 52 yards. 


Quarterback Dalton Phillips helped the Watertown cause with 167 yards passing as the Tigers compiled 489 total yards in the contest.


Watertown led only 6-0 at the end of one, but two second-quarter scores made it 18-0 at intermission. The Tigers pulled away with three scores, two by Holycross, in the third quarter, and held the Bulldogs to only 92 total yards as they improved to 5-1.  The Tigers have allowed only one touchdown in a five-game winning streak, outscoring their opponents 199-6. 


Clay County will take a 3-3 record into next week’s contest against longtime rival Jackson County
