The Okkodo Bulldogs ran away with a 29-6 victory over the Tiyan Titans Saturday night at the Ramsay field in Tamuning.

Bulldog senior Jesse Carl Cruz led the ground game with over 100 yards rushing out of the wishbone offense. The Bulldogs were able to control the clock throughout the game, especially in the first quarter, leaving both teams with only one offensive drive heading into the second quarter.

Cruz struck first on the ground in the second quarter off a cross dive up the left side, but was called back on a holding penalty. A recovered fumble by Tiyan’s Gage Toves would but them on offense, however that drive was short-lived as Okkodo’s safety would pick off a pass from quarterback Shaun Alvarez to run it back for the first score of the night.

A mishap by Tiyan’s return team and tough running resulted in Tiyan getting on board in the start of the 3rd quarter. The kick was initially received by Alfredo Blas but after first contact was fumbled then picked up by Antonio Blas.

“He took the ball to my sideline and fumbled it; I took it and hit the sideline,” said Blas on his 85-yard return.

The Bulldog ground attack was relentless getting inside Tiyans’s red zone for a second time in the night. Quarterback Jaythaniel Cruz walked in another score for the Okkodo but not before running back Joshua Cruz hammered the ball to the 1 yard.

A good punt by Okkodo put the Titans backfield in their end zone. Leo ‘lightning’ Diaz put up his best effort to get them out of hot water but was stuffed in the end zone by a pack of Bulldogs adding to the Okkodo score to make it 15-6.

Joshua Cruz would strike again later in the 3rd quarter from 10 yards out to further the Bulldogs 21-6.

With less than two minutes left in the game Jaythaniel Cruz connected with Dylan Borja at mid field to put Okkodo with in scoring range for the third time in the night.

Aiden Ferrera sealed the deal for the the Bulldogs catching a difficult catch in the back corner of the endzone and then running into the extra point to the same side.

Bulldog Jesse Karl earned his second straight Wendy's player of the game for the second straight week.
