GUNNISON—The Gunnison Valley Bulldogs faced their first major challenge of the year when they clashed with the North Sevier Wolves on Friday and came away with a 26-6 loss.

The Bulldogs and Wolves have been rivals for years with North Sevier located just down the road from Gunnison.

The first quarter was a stalemate with neither team scoring. It was in the second quarter when all the action happened.

Gunnison starting running back Kyler White scored a touchdown, but North Sevier denied the Bulldogs the point after touchdown.

North Sevier, on the other hand, came on hard in the second quarter, using a strong passing game to put 20 points on the board.

The third quarter was a repeat of the first with neither team managing to make points.

The final quarter saw the Wolves make one last touchdown, but like the Bulldogs’ six points in the second quarter, the Wolves failed to make the extra points.

Now 1-1, the Bulldogs will face the 0-1 Kanab Cowboys in a nonregion game tomorrow. The Cowboys come fresh from a 41-6 loss to Beaver. The Wolves, now 1-0, will host Milford tomorrow.
