With the loss of one of the their team captains, Eder Landgrave, to injury, Ramona Pop Warner Guard Dawgs had to overcome some adversity in their season opener versus the Carlsbad Storming Lancers.
In their first offensive series, the Dawgs ran into trouble by turning the ball over on their second play from scrimmage. The defense took the field and smothered any hopes Carlsbad may have had in capitalizing, reported Coach Will Hobbs.
From that point forward the Dawgs never looked back, noted Hobbs. Thirteen members of the Guard Dawgs’ 19-man roster carried the rock. Seven of those were responsible for the 33 points accumulated in the 33-6 win.
All members of the team gained experience and has many opportunities to contribute in the victory.
