Jennings drops close one to DeRidder


Daily News Sports Writer

When you roll the dice, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. DeRidder Head Coach Eric Parmley rolled the dice Friday night in Jerry Simmons Stadium. He threw a seven, or in this case an eight, to give his Dragons a one-point win over the home standing Bulldogs.

The Dogs had dominated the Dragons for nearly 44 minutes before DeRidder busted into the scoring column. Daniel Crosley blocked a Bulldog punt and returned it 30 yards to paydirt. Parmley then decided to roll the dice and go for a two-point conversion. After lining up for a conventional point after kick, the Dragon holder picked up the snap from center that barely got airborne, and completed a shovel pass to Addie Fisher for the two points to steal an 8-7 victory over the Bulldogs. The touchdown and two-point conversion came with 4:13 showing on the clock in the fourth and final frame.
