Two games into the 2007 football season, the Thomson Middle School Bulldogs find themselves undefeated.
The latest win by the Bulldogs of Head Coach Nick Brinson came last Wednesday in the Thomson Brickyard with the team posting a 38-22 victory over the Putnam Middle School Eagles of Eatonton.
Thomson, now 3-0 and the defending Super 10 Middle School Champions, found themselves trailing the Eagles early. On Putnam's first play from scrimmage, the quarterback found a receiver wide open for 74-yard touchdown. A two-point conversion later and Thomson Middle trailed 8-0.
That deficit didn't last long.
Thomson's Demarquis Lampkin returned the ensuing kickoff 70 yards for a touchdown, followed by a Ladricus Bonner two-point conversion with 7:26 left in the first quarter. Thomson would score again late in the first quarter on a 65-yard punt return by Marjerius Moss. Again, Bonner scored the two-point conversion, which allowed the Bulldogs to take a 16-8 lead.
Following a Putnam score in the second quarter, Thomson opened the second half with a long drive that culminated with Bonner punching it in for a TD from a yard out with 4:24 left in the third. He also scored the two-point conversion, increasing Thomson's lead to 24-14.
Thomson and Putman traded touchdowns to start the fourth quarter before Marjerius Moss sealed the win for the Bulldogs with a 47-yard touchdown run with just over three minutes to play in the game. Britt Smallwood, who played an outstanding game defensively, scored the two-point conversion.
