The Dove Creek Bulldogs played in the semi-final playoff game last weekend in Julesburg, CO. Unfortunately, they lost 46-6. The Bulldogs have not been in the semi-finals since 1993, so making it there this year was a big accomplishment. Junior Quarterback Chorbin Cressler had 21 compilations on the year for a total of 256 yards. Gauge Thompson, Senior #3 had a total of 79 carries for 589 yards, and had 40 tackles for the year. Gage bailey Senior #8 had a total of 113 carries for 877 yards, and 28 total tackles. Austin Beanland, Senior #9 had an amazing year at center and also an amazing year as defensive end with a total of 51 tackles. Hayden Gray, Senior #77 had an awesome year as right guard and middle linebacker with an outstanding 58 tackles. This team has put in many years of hard work, and had an amazing season. Earning their spot in the semi-finals, and going 5-2 is something to celebrate. The two teams that will be competing in the State championship game are the two teams the Bulldogs lost to. Congratulations, Bulldogs on a successful season.

This past Saturday, the Dove Creek Bulldogs played Sedgwick County in Julesburg in their well-earned position in the 2020 Colorado Class A 8-Man State Football Playoffs. Both teams had a goal in mind to advance to the State Championship game and make history - and both teams did. With a final score of 46-6, Sedgwick County Cougars earned the advancement to State and broke records making it to their sixth consecutive State Championship, and the Dove Creek broke through a rough streak, and made it to the first semi-final game since 1992.
The Dove Creek High School Football had an amazing season; first winning against Vail Christian Academy, Sargent, and then Sangre de Christo.
