ST. MARTINVILLE – The Jennings Bulldogs got things rolling quickly in their season opener against the St. Martinville Tigers, as they scored the game’s first 10 points to help them race to a 17-13 halftime lead. Unfortunately for the Dogs, the Tigers found new life and put up 21 points in the second half to claim a 34-31 win.

The Tigers received the opening kickoff and the Maroon Wall flexed their muscles, forcing their hosts to a three-and-out. Jennings took advantage of good field position and motored 54 yards in 11 plays to paydirt. On the 11th play, Lemontay Mouton found the endzone on fourth and goal from the four-yard line. Steady kicker Seth Cox converted the PAT to give the Dogs an early 7-0 lead.
