It wasn't pretty, but the Aurelia Bulldogs pulled out a win over Ruthven-Ayrshire to even their season record at 1-1.
The Bulldogs through three interceptions and lost two fumbles, but they were able to hold on to an early lead in the victory.
Aaron Bruce got Aurelia on the board as he returned the opening kickoff 61 yards for the score. Kody Pinkerton was good on the extra point, and the Bulldog defense would take over from there.
Bruce led the way for Aurelia defensively as he totaled ten tackles Friday. Alec Ohlson and Anthony Fowler were close behind with nine apiece.
Bruce and Fowler would connect for the only other points on a 32-yard pass. The point after was no good.
Jacob Howey led the Aurelia rushing attack with 52 yards. Ohlson added 30 of his own.
Fowler finished with three catches for 67 yards.
