Owls help cool off Diamond ’Dawgs 11-0

It didn’t take long for the Ooltewah Owls to get on the scoreboard. The only problem was that the Bearden Bulldogs couldn’t slow them down, as Ooltewah cruised to an easy 11-0 victory Saturday, April 8, at Bearden’s Phil Garner Field.

“Right now they are on a different level than we are,” BHS head coach Matt Buckner said. “I thought we were ready for that level, we are obviously not.”

After their second straight loss, BHS’s record dropped to 15-4 overall and 4-2 in District 4-AAA entering the week.

Ooltewah hit four homeruns in the game, accounting for eight of their runs.

As for Bearden’s offense, it was non existent as Ooltewah senior John Howard allowed only one hit over the span of his complete game six-inning effort. Howard struck out 12 Bearden hitters while walking three and hitting two.

BHS’s only hit came in the third-inning when William Alexander beat out an infield single.

Despite the two game losing streak, Buckner said his team will bounce back and learn from the past two games. “We will be alright, we will get better ... hopefully get better towards the end of the season,” the coach said.


A three-run first- and four-run fourth-inning proved to be too much Friday, April 7, in a 7-3 BHS loss at William Blount. Justin Miller and Cameron Bowlin doubled.

The Bulldogs cruised against Cumberland County 12-2 Thursday, April 6. Josh Hullet was the winning pitcher. Justin Miller hit a grand slam in the seventh.

Justin Miller homered and Kendale Roach hit a pair of doubles to lead the BHS offense over Sevier County 12-1 Wednesday, April 5. Hunter Daniel got the win on the mound. Alexander and Wayne Miller doubled.

Wells had a 3 for 3 day at the plate, including a double, as the Bulldogs beat Maryville 12-4 Monday, April 3. Alexander tripled and Andy Fennell got the win on the mound.
