Amidst grandstands packed with fans dressed in Columbia blue and red, the Socorro Bulldogs took on the Parkland Matadors for their homecoming game Friday night.
With the stands filled with proud community members, the atmosphere was electric, even before the players stepped onto the football field.
It was against this backdrop that the Bulldogs began the game strong, despite missing some key players on defense due to injuries. However it was a tough match, as they went down on the scoreboard early; but the determined Bulldogs weren’t going give up without a fight.
Senior Alex Olivas put Socorro on the board with a nice run from inside the Parkland 10 yard line. He later added a second score after securing a nice strike from Junior QB Jacob Luna.
The spark was no match though for the fast-paced Matador offense, as the Bulldogs fell 55-21.
“Scoring two touchdowns tonight sets the pace for my season, the team is putting their all and are never giving up,” Olivas stated. “The season is long and there’s always time for improvement.”
