by Curtis Pittman, Dogwood Hills Board President

The Dogwood Hills Golf course will hold a 2-Man scramble on September 20 and 21.

This will be the End of Summer tournament with cash prizes awarded. Entry fee will be $60.00 per team. Dogwood Hills will also hold a Course Championship in October that will be a match play format.

We need everyone who plans to play for the course championship to sign up in advance in order to match players with similar handicaps together. This will be a double elimination format so you will be guaranteed 2 rounds of golf. Entry fee will be decided upon and posted at the golf course.

Dogwood Hills is open to the public Monday through Sunday. If the Pro Shop is closed, please take a cart and pay the maintenance man before you leave. A round of 18 holes is very affordable at $20.00 for green fee and cart. A membership is $70.00 a month for an individual, $80.00 a month for a family and $150.00 a month for a business membership. There is a $7.00 drop fee if you bring your own cart for a non-member. The cost is an additional $30.00 a month if you are a member and own your own cart.

I look forward to seeing you at the golf course. Don't forget, hit'em long and straight and if you can't hit'em long at least hit'em straight.

The Colmesneil Lady Bulldogs, coached by Amber Rainey and Micah Bumstead, have started what is proving to be a great season with a record of 14-8.

Last week the girls entered the YMBL tournament and tied for first in their pool. The Lady Dogs made it all the way to play for consolation, but fell short to Anhuac.

Overall, the Lady Dogs came out with fifth place out of 14 teams. Contributing to this outcome were five wins and three losses.

The girls are looking forward to participating in district play, which is coming right around the corner.
Friday's contest will feature the Lady Dogs playing against the Groveton Indians, at 4:30 p.m. in Groveton.
The Lady Dogs would love to see all the support of their fans cheering them on when they play on Indian territory.

The West Hardin Oilers may have drilled the Colmesneil Bulldogs in Friday night's game on the Dogs' home-turf of Taylor Field, but the game showed plenty of fight from the fightin' Bulldogs.

Strong defensive play from the Dogs held off the Oilers for long stretches. Half of the game (the first and third quarters) were entirely devoid of scores. Oilers lineman Brian Adams made the first touchdown of the game, during the second quarter with a first down for the Oilers.

The first half was largely uneventful for the Dogs and with 18 seconds remaining on the clock before halftime, the Oilers scored another TD, which along with a successful two-point conversion, rendered the score 16-0 at halftime.
A third quarter without any action on the scoreboard from either team set up a fast-paced fourth quarter, which saw Oilers runningback Garrett Creel score a touchdown right out of the box. With first down for the Dogs, junior runningback Kaleb Lindsey caught a pass from Harrison Brown to run 14 yards into the endzone. Another touchdown from Creel, again seemingly committed as soon as the Oilers got possession of the ball, brought the score to 30-6. A one-yard touchdown from junior runningback Dalton Davis, coupled with a point from Chris Thedford's field goal brought the total to 13 for the Dogs at the end of the final quarter.

Ultimately, West Hardin headed away from Bulldog Country with a 30-13 victory under its belt, but not without plenty of fight in the Bulldog team, as shown in its second contest of the 2014 season. Friday, the Bulldogs will travel to Groveton to take on the Indians at 7:30 p.m. at Indian Stadium.
