They'll score later on the drive to make it six nothing.
Ida Baker with the ball next #11 throws it to #4 who makes a nice cut upfield leaving two defenders in the dust but not for long Dunbar # 51's able to make the tackle.
Bulldogs were busting along until this. Later in the drive #11 tries to get it to #6 but like a true Tiger Dunbar #5 pounces! He receives the pick easily making half of the baker players miss on the return.
