Francis showed no fear versus the bigger Sweetwater Hawks weaving his way thru the defense on a quick trap play for a 16 yard touchdown run. Early 2nd Quarter Francis out did himself breaking two tackles up the middle and separating from defenders taking it 82 yards for the touchdown, giving Gwen Cherry the 12-0 lead. What was seeming like a blowout turned out to be a defensive struggle, Sweetwater would go on to stop the Bulls two times in the redzone led by Walter Simmons off the edge.
