The Bainbridge Middle School seventh grade Bearcats football team opened their season with a 16-6 victory Wedensday, over the McIntyre Park Middle School seventh grade Bulldogs at Thomasville’s Veterans Memorial Stadium.

They struck early, scoring on a 65-yard opening kickoff return touchdown by Dalvin Spivie. Spivie ran up with middle for a two-point conversion increasing the advantage to 8-0.

The Bulldogs cut the lead to 8-6 with a 15-yard off-tackle touchdown run in the second quarter.

McIntyre Park’s quarterback tried to run in for the two-point conversion, but the Bearcats’ defense came up to stop him a yard short of the goal line.

Spivie ran 35 yards for an apparent touchdown in the third quarter, but it was called back for holding.

The Bearcats scored their final touchdown at the 4:53 mark of the fourth quarter to go up 14-6. It was again scored by Spivie, who ran a sweep around the left side, broke into the open and raced 40 yards to the end zone.

Spivie then ran off right tackle for the conversion to put the final points on the board.
