Multiple Teams · Bearden drops road test at Science Hill


Bearden couldn’t quite recreate the magic of last season’s overtime win over Science Hill, falling to the Hilltoppers 34-20 in this season’s edition of the game.

Bearden freshman quarterback Collin Ironside put up another solid performance with 322 yards and three touchdowns through the air, but that wasn’t enough for the Bulldogs (3-6) to overcome Hilltopper running back Canaan Mackie’s 141 rushing yards, which were part of the 341 Science Hill (6-3) total rushing yards.

The Bulldogs return home next week for senior night against Jefferson County (3-6).
