Drake vs. JU 2012 final score: Dolphins fall to Bulldogs, 32-29

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

The Dolphins dug their way out of a 17-0 deficit, but didn't have enough ammo to take down the Bulldogs.

The Jacksonville Dolphins came close, but couldn't complete the comeback against the Drake Bulldogs, losing 32-29 at home on Saturday.

Jacksonville fell into a 17-0 hole in the first half, but clawed back to take a 22-17 lead at the beginning of the fourth quarter. However, two touchdowns in a three-minute stretch by the Bulldogs doomed the Dolphins to defeat.

Trevius Folston went 17-28 for 237 yards and a touchdown for Jacksonville, but the problem was that the Dolphins had great difficulty running the ball all afternoon. Keith Dawson rushed for only 53 yards on 18 carries, but did score a touchdown. D'Andre Randle had 92 receiving yards and a touchdown to lead the Jacksonville receiving corps.

Mike Piatkowski led the Bulldogs by going 25-34 for 277 yards and two touchdowns, clinching a share of the Pioneer League title with the win. Drake also had difficulty running the ball, led by Gary Scott with only 45 yards. Kevin Marshall had 110 receiving yards and a touchdown on 10 receptions, and Joey Orlando also had a touchdown catch.
