Monye’ Jones and the Washington Bulldogs traveled to Grady Stadium late Friday evening to shut out the Grady Knights 35-0.

The opening drive for the Bulldogs set the tone for the rest of the game as the Bulldogs went 70 plus yards to get on the board for their first points of the game.

Monye’ Jones would rush into the endzone from the four yard line and convert the two point conversion to give the Bulldogs an 8-0 lead with 8:38 remaining in the first quarter.

The Knights had trouble getting their offense going all night. Field position would play into that as they would start within their own 30 for two and a half quarters. The Knights would also fail to pass midfield going into halftime down 22-0.

As for Jones and the Bulldogs, their offense kept giving the Knights defense problems. Jones connected with receiver Jordan Atkins for his first passing touchdown of the game while also converting the two point conversion to put the Bulldogs ahead 16-0.

Again, the Knights failure of getting the offense going and field position would help the Bulldogs defense get another three and out and set up the Bulldogs offense at the Knights 34 with less than two minutes to go.

Jones located Ronald Mason for his second  touchdown pass of the game while failing to convert the two point conversion. The Bulldogs would go into halftime with a 22-0 lead.

Midway into the third quarter, the Knights would manage to cross midfield for the first time but failed to generate any points, going three and out again.

The Bulldogs never looked back and were too powerful for the Knights. Rodricus Fitten would add two rushing touchdowns to shut out the Knights 35-0.

Jones finished with three total touchdowns (two passing, one rushing).

The Bulldogs are now 3-0 on the season and will face Berkmar Sep. 7 at home beginning at 5:30 p.m.
