The Mexico Bulldogs Football Team lost for the first time this season 48-21 to the Hannibal Pirates.
Hannibal rushed out to a 21-0 lead.
Then Mexico scored for the first time in the 2nd quarter on a 54 yard, three minute and 2 second drive that was capped off by a Michael White 10 yard rushing score.
It was 21-7 Hannibal.
The Pirates would quickly score again making 28-7.
The Bulldogs would get some momentum after Michael White intercepted Hannibal quarterback Courtland Watson and ran it back 88 yards putting the ball on the 5 yard line.
A penalty was called on Hannibal and Mexico would score on a 5 yard pass from Ty Sims to Matt McCurdy with no time left on the clock and it was 28-14 at the half.
That is as close as Mexico would get.
The Bulldogs would score one more time in the 2nd half on a 53 yard touchdown pass from Ty Sims to Anthony Shivers.
The Bulldogs are now 4-1 on the season and 1-1 in the North Central Missouri Conference and will play in Fulton against the Hornet next week in the 54 Bowl.
It was also Homecoming for Mexico.
