WACO - One week after taking on Class 3A No. 1 Grandview, the Glen Rose Tigers traveled to Class 4A Div. II No. 5 Waco Connally on Friday night and dropped a 35-17 decision to the Cadets.
The Tigers (0-2) recorded a Garett Davis field goal on the game’s first drive to lead 3-0, but the Cadets answered with 35 consecutive points to lead 35-3 at the break. The Tigers got deep into Cadet territory several times in the first half, but lost the ball via turnover and downs to halt drives.
Glen Rose freshman running back Sean Dodson, who rushed for 132 yards in the second half, scored the first of his two touchdowns on the night with a 9-yard run late in the third quarter and a 2-yard run with just a minute left in the game.
The Tigers will look to get their first win of the season when they host Springtown on Friday at 7 p.m. at Tiger Stadium.
