The Volunteers of Arlington Bowie Win to Improve to 3-0

| | , , ,

Bowie is on a roll.  In 2018, they were 6-5.  They improved last year to 8-4.  With the 28-14 win over South Grand Prairie and moving to 3-0,  the program is continuing to be on the rise.   This is their best start to a season since 2016.

Arlington Bowie faced the South Grand Prairie Warriors in their district opener. The Warriors came into the game 2-0, with am opening win over Mesquite, 28-26, and a win last week over Hewitt Midway. The game was a close defensive battle early, with a 7-7 score going into halftime. It looked like the Warriors were about to take the lead as Bowie fumbled the ball inside the 5-yard line, but they fumbled the ball right back. Bowie could not do anything on that possession.  In the Warriors next drive, Troy Whitaker scored on a 56-yard touchdown to give South Grand Prairie a 14-7 lead late in the third quarter.  The lead would not hold up.

Responding to the Warriors taking the lead, Bowie drove right down the field. Led by  28 and 29-yard receptions by Trint Scott and Kameron Sanders, and capped off by Quarterback Drevonn Ponder running it in from the one-yard line.  Then, midway through the fourth quarter, Ponder connected on a long pass to Scott again for a 30-yard touchdown, giving Bowie a 20-14 lead.  After the defense forced a stop and a punt from the Warriors that went less than 10 yards, Bowie scored again when Ponder hit Josh Kelley for the 29 yard TD. A two-point conversation put the Volunteers up 28-10.

Final Score:  Arlington Bowie Volunteers 80 – South Grand Prairie Warriors 14

Drevonn Ponder threw for 164 yards and ran for 95 and 3 touchdowns for the Volunteers. Trint Scott topped 100 yards receiving with 108 and 1 touchdown.

The SGP Warriors will look to improve to 3-1 as they play Arlington Martin next week.  The Arlington Martin Warriors are 2-1, coming off a 42-25 win over Temple and a 37-0 win over The Woodlands College Park after an opening 24-47 loss to Denton Ryan.  Arlington Bowie will look to move to 4-0 as they play Arlington Lamar next week.  The Arlington Lamar Vikings are 1-2, losing 41-51 to Lewisville and 28-35 to Euless Trinity, and getting a 19-7 win over Waxahachie.
