Heartbreaker: Bulldogs lose in final seconds at Osage
OSAGE – Penalties and turnovers turned a playoff-hopeful Hampton-Dumont football team away at Osage on Saturday night.
Postponed almost 24 hours after severe weather hit north-central Iowa, the Bulldogs had a heart-wrenching 13-12 loss to the Green Devils in Class 2A, District 3 play.
A win Saturday would have already clinched a playoff berth for H-D.
“(We had) several turnovers and penalties that put us in a bad position,” Hampton-Dumont coach Jerry Shafrath said. “We threw an interception and the defense did a nice job of holding them. Throughout the next drive, penalties of some type hurt us.”
